Lovingly Reported by, Deborah Bornstein Munoz
Bonnie Tullar Thompson, Class of ‘72 earned her angel wings on November 5, 2022. Hoping to wish her a happy birthday today, it was a sad shock to see an obituary on her profile. I had not known of this until today. Bonnie was a dear friend, fun and loving, gone far too soon and now I picture her in Heaven with our friend Sarah Ann Vessey 💔. Here’s a picture of Bonnie sitting between Jill McAlvage and Sarah and Ora Brough behind her, a typical weekend scene for us back then. …sending condolences and prayers for comfort and love for all of Bonnie’s friends and family.
Bonnie’s Son, Jared Thompson Lovingly Wrote:
For those of you who did not know my mom personally, this is her. I wanted to share this beautiful photo of her. Nearly 2 weeks it’s been now. I miss you so much.

Bonnie Tullar Thompson
MAY 6, 1954 – NOVEMBER 5, 2022
Barbara (Bonnie) Thompson began life at Ft. Hood in Killeen, Tx. May 6, 1954, and departed this world for the next, on Nov. 5, 2022 at her home in San Antonio. Her parents, Thomas and Dorothy (Dot) Tullar, fulfilled a 26-year Army career, moving Bonnie and her younger sisters, Linda and Sue throughout the world. In doing so, Bonnie was exposed to many cultures and many people which gave her a worldly education all on its own. Bonnie graduated from the International School of Bangkok in 1972 and enrolled at Texas Christian University (TCU). While studying in the field of Social Work, she met and after graduation, married the man who would be the long-time love of her life, Chris.
Together they soon moved to San Antonio, where Bonnie worked in Child Welfare for the State for many years. After their third son was born, she decided to give up Social Work and do the equally rewarding work of raising a family and keeping a welcoming home. She did it all with grace and good cheer.
She is well remembered and already deeply missed. Her sons, Jared, Zach, and Adam Thompson, all survive her and are inspired by her love and devotion. Chris admits to “marrying up” and certainly becoming a better man for it. Bonnie worked tirelessly at St. Matthews United Methodist Church over the years, with Children’s Church, Youth Groups, Vacation Bible School, Boy Scouts and many other efforts. In her passing, many hearts are saddened, but many smiles come forth in any remembrance of her.
In lieu of flowers, please consider Bonnie’s favorite charities. The St. Joseph Indian School, PO Box 100, Chamberlain, South Dakota 57325. Or the Special Needs Ministry of University Methodist Church, 5084 De Zavala Rd, San Antonio, 78249.
