Obituary Image


Rose Ann Lister Thompson was born on July 22, 1948 in Kansas City, Missouri to the parents of Leonard Lister, Sr. and Adell Outley.  She was preceded in death by her parents, husband, Thomas Thompson, daughter, Angela Lister and daughter-in-law, Sheila Lister.

Rose Ann joined Metropolitan Missionary Baptist Church in 1958 and remained a member until the time of her death. She really enjoyed having the option of calling in on Sunday mornings to listen to the worship services.  These services were a true blessing to her spiritual life.

Rose Ann was educated in the Kansas City, Missouri school district, graduating in 1966 from Central High School.  She married the love of her life, Thomas Thompson on November 28, 1994.

Rose Ann enjoyed reading the weekly Call Paper, watching the news, old movies, soap operas, and game shows like Jeopardy, Wheel of Fortune, and Family Feud. She also enjoyed times with family and was quite the engaging conversationalist in person or on the phone.  Rose Ann was a natural at connecting with anyone and not shy at all about asking questions to get to know the person better.  She was a big Chiefs fan, especially of Patrick Mahomes and Tyrek Hill and would wear her supporting red at every opportunity.  Rose Ann will be greatly missed.

She departed this life on Sunday, November 21, 2021 at Research Medical Center.

She leaves to cherish her memories: two sons Stanley Lister, Raytown, Missouri; Tajuane Lister (Tanya), four grandchildren, Tavion, Trequan, Tyrek, Tiana; two sisters, Anita Bell and Onita Bradley (James); three brothers, Leonard Lister, Jr., Oliver Outley, all of Kansas City, Missouri, and Ollie Outley III (Vickie), Milwaukee, Wisconsin and a host of other relatives and friends.
