Joan B. Thompson

July 30, 1961 ~ May 8, 2019 (age 57)

Joan Barbara Thompson "Peachie" was born On July 3D, 1961 to Mary
(Kitty) and the late Norman Thompson. Peachie lived her life the way
she wanted to, unapologetically. It should have been known that she
would be a force to be reckoned with when she was in her mother's
womb. Peachie was 31 inches long when she was born. She had a big
smile and a big heart. Her instant notability stemmed from her height
and beauty and got her enormous attention everywhere she went. If
you knew Peach ie, you know that she didn't mind. Although Peachie
didn't have any biological children, she loved ALL children as if they
were her own, especially her nieces and nephews. Peachie was very
protective of her family. She was quick to defend them if anyone got out
of pocket with them. Not many people wanted to go up against her 6'4"
frame. Peachie attended Baltimore City Public Schools. She played
basketball alongside her sister Lynn at then Northern High School. She
was a staunch competitor and very much enjoyed playing the game. Peachie loved perfume.


Her perfume would enter the room before she did. {You can laugh now}. She always looked

nice. She kept her hair well done in a wrap or pulled back in a ponytail. We may think she was
called too soon but Peachie lived her life fully. She was happy! She lived! She loved! She
laughed! Peachie departed this life peacefully and gracefully on Wednesday, May 8, 2019. She
was preceded in death by her brother, Norman and leaves to mourn her departure, her
mother, Kitty, three brothers, Leon (Machelle), Michael (Varlie) and Anthony, three sisters,
Sharon (Mack Palmer), Brenda and Lynn, 6 nephews,S nieces, 4 great-nephews and 4 great-
nieces, a host of aunts, uncles, cousins and friends.
