Southern Shores – Dorothy Jane Thompson, 89 years old, from Southern Shores, North Carolina, passed away on December 7, 2018 surrounded by her family. She was born on March 19, 1929 in Bronx, New York to Harold and Agatha Wood.

She is survived by her daughters, Lorraine Hock from Middletown, NJ and Diane Libretto, Southern Shores, NC; six grandchildren, Ashley Libretto, Kaitlin Moore, Alexis Weber, Michael Hock, Matthew Hock and Thomas Libretto; and two great grandchildren, Madison and Jack Weber.
