Patricia W. Monnett was born December 11, 1929 in Washington, DC. Pat's mother, Margaret Simmons, came from the mountains of Headwaters, Virginia to Washington, DC to become a nurse. While in nursing school she met and married Emmett Waters, a young DC policeman.

Pat was their only child and grew up in the days when Washington was a hometown where children could safely play in the alleys of Foggy Bottom, ride the streetcars that were more fun than the rides at Glen Echo, walk the sidewalks at night just to enjoy the sights and sounds, and where Pat would become the Washington Star's first girl to have a paper delivery route.

Their family friends were diverse and included Chinese restaurateurs and German neighbors. Pat grew up under the care of her grandmother, Hattie Allen Waters, who lived with the family. It was from Grandmother Waters that Pat learned how to be a proper young lady wearing her little white gloves and accompanying her grandmother to tea at Woodward & Lothrop's.

Pat was a proud Golden Techite, having attended and graduated from McKinley Tech High School. After high school she pursued an education in nursing as she followed in the footsteps of her mother and Grandmother Waters. Pat began her nursing education at the Emergency Hospital School of Nursing, then finishing at Gallenger Hospital (DC General).

Pat met and married Dennis Monnett in December 1951. They built a home on his family farm in Adelina. She said that as an only child she wanted lots of children of her own and three daughters were born. Her happiness increased as her family circle grew to include 5 grandchildren and 6 great-grandchildren.

She is survived by her three children and their spouses: Marcia Monnett (Marijo), Marilyn Tiralla (Joseph), and Patricia McNabb (Darryl); also her grandchildren, their spouses, and great-grandchildren: Benson and Jamie Tiralla (Caroline, Henry, and Isaac Waters), Tommie McNabb, Jesse and Megan Tiralla (Braeden and Emmett), Grady McNabb, and Joshua and Megan Tiralla (Evelyn Patricia).

Pat followed in her mother's footsteps as she did private duty nursing for a time before working as an office nurse for Dr. I. Damalouji for almost 30 years. She loved and was loved by many, many folks who were patients in that office from adults to children to their children's children. When the Calvert County Board of Education partnered with the Health Department to begin a new school nursing program she was one of the first nurses to be hired and served primarily at Appeal and Patuxent Elementary Schools until she retired from her nursing career.

But that didn't stop her from her community service as she continued to volunteer her time at Huntingtown United Methodist Church as a founding member of the Parish Nurses, working at church suppers and funeral luncheons, helping with Vacation Bible School, and being a Missing Piece in the Sunday School. She was a member of the Calvert Memorial Hospital Auxiliary working in the gift shop. Pat also enjoyed delivering for Meals on Wheels.

She also spent a brief time volunteering for Calvert Library, ECHO, and the Pines Senior Center. Pat was always a great one to take in rescue dogs and Ory has been her four legged companion for the last several years. Ory was adopted from Calvert Animal Welfare League (CAWL). Contributions in her memory to any of these wonderful organizations would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Her friends and her family were her great joys, she had a smile and warm hug and cheerful greeting for all. She loved and was loved by many and her loss among us will be great. The funeral service was held at Huntingtown United Methodist Church. Officiated by Pastor Keith Schukraft and Rev. Alice Thompson. Arrangements were provided by Rausch Funeral Home.

Benedict ("Dick", "Buddy") Drury Thompson, DDS, 77, of Walkersville, MD died Saturday, April 30th 2016 at Frederick Memorial Hospital. He was the beloved husband of Sheila Thompson, his wife of 48 years. Born in Leonardtown, MD on January 13th, 1939 he was the son of Joseph Upton and Miriam Thompson. Dick was predeceased by his parents, his brother Upton Thompson Jr. and sister Patricia Suit.

Dick was the second of nine children and grew up on a tobacco farm in Hollywood, MD. He attended St. John's Catholic School in Hollywood and St. Mary's Ryken High School in Leonardtown. He enlisted in the Naval Reserve while still in high school. After earning a Bachelor's Degree in Mechanical Engineering from Catholic University, he attended Marine Corps Officer Candidate School and accepted an officer's commission in the US Marine Corps. Following regular duty, Dick joined the US Marine Corps Reserve and worked as an engineer at Vitro Corporation. He met Sheila in 1966 while preparing for enrollment in Dental School at the University of Maryland. They married in 1967 and spent their early years with summers at Camp LeJeune, NC and the academic year in Baltimore. Following graduation, Dick began a thirty year dental career in Walkersville, MD.

Dr. Thompson, as he was known to much of Walkersville, was constantly involved with community and church. Some of these activities include 43 years of service to the Glade Valley Lions Club, where he was about to serve his third term as president. He was a PTA president, a charter member of the WHS boosters, GVAA Football Commissioner, Frederick County Dental Society president, and any activities supporting his three children as they were growing up. His volunteer work grew after he was retired, and he was able to serve Meals on Wheels, Rebuilding Together, Planting Hope, St. Peter's Youth Group work in Appalachia, as well as various 5K fundraisers. He was a faithful friend to friends who were sick or unable to be home. He cherished weekly visits with his mother at his childhood home, helping to care for her until her death at age 99. A favorite activity of late was regular coffee with the Boys at McDonalds.

Dick Thompson was a man for all seasons; he never stopped learning, reading, building, fixing cars, crafting a sailboat, helping Catholic University plan Reunion activities, and traveling wherever his wife decided they should go, including annual family reunions in Minnesota or Wisconsin. His involvement with his faith and church was never-ending. He participated in Perpetual Eucharistic Adoration, attended the "Following Christ" program, was a greeter for Mass, and did extensive work for maintenance projects on the St. Peter's Church campus.

Above all, Dick was devoted to his family: wife Sheila, son Patrick of St. Paul, MN, daughter Maureen (Doug) of Gambrills, MD, son Michael (Debra) of Clarksburg, MD, grandchildren Kieran, Bridget, and Maeve Sevec and Nora, Elena, and Kelly Thompson, sisters Franny Thompson (George), Elizabeth Blackwell (Alan), brothers Wayne Thompson (Joan), G. Michael Thompson (Barbara), John Thompson (Elise), Sam Thompson (Susan), sister-in-law Marylou Thompson, brother-in-law Steve Suit, and in-laws Kathleen and Jerry Dillon, Eileen and Steve Richter, Michael and Peggy Whalin, and Mary Whalin.

Mass of Christian Burial will be held at St. Peter's Catholic Church in Libertytown, MD on Saturday, May 7th at 11:00 am. Officiating will be Rev. Jason Worley and Rev. Eugene Nickol. A private burial will take place at St. John's Cemetery in Hollywood, MD at a later date.

The family will receive visitors at Stauffer Funeral Home on Opossumtown Pike on Thursday, May 5th from 6-8 pm and Friday, May 6th from 2-4 pm and 6-8 pm with a prayer service at 7:00 with Msgr. Richard Murphy presiding. In lieu of flowers, donations made be made to St. Peter's Catholic Church, Friends of Meals on Wheels of Frederick County, or the Make-a-Wish Foundation.
