Donna Lee "Nany" Thompson, 68 of Route 67 passed at home, surrounded by her loving family, on Saturday, March 14th, after a brave battle with cancer.
Born in Troy, March 12, 1952, daughter of James and Velda Bartlett Bussing, she was raised by Ed and Mary Noradki in foster care. She graduated from Shenendehowa High School in 1971.
Donna worked a number of jobs beginning with the former Dunsters Drive In Malta, Servomation of Clifton Park and Parts Unlimited of Clifton Park. She quit working in 1995 to help raise her grandchildren, later becoming a healthcare aide, therapist, computer tech support and cooking instructor for many family and friends. She was also a Master of duct tape!
Donna loved her family, pets and friends deeply. She also loved drives in rural Washington, Rensselaer and Bennington counties, on the back of her husband's motorcycle, or in the car with her dog Peanut on her lap.
She was a kind heart and sympathetic soul, with an infectious laugh and sense of humor, that she passed down to her family.
Predeceased by her parents, Ed Noradki, brothers David McNeil, Dale Bussing and infant brother James.
Survivors include her husband of 26 years Kevin Thompson, her son and daughter from a previous marriage Scott (Lisa) Furman with grandchildren Ashley and Kira Furman and great grand babies Alexis and Miranda Gannon. Daughter Kattie (Jay) Dixon with granddaughter Amber Peters and grandson Kai Dixon. Her sister Dawn Shere of Iowa and brother Daniel Bussing. Foster mother Mary Noradki of Saratoga, foster sisters Theresa Michel of Greenfield and Edith Stearrett of California.
Special thanks to staff of WCCA, St. Peter's and Albany Medical for their compassionate care.
Her beautiful spirit will live on in all she touched. As Nany would say, stop being a peckerhead!!
There will be no calling hours.
A celebration of her life will be set at a later date and announced by family via Facebook and other media.
In lieu of flowers, remembrances can be made to Cancer Research, Huntington's Research or to the Saratoga County Animal Shelter.

Nany always was an angel, God just decided it was time to give her wings. I miss her so much today, and I don’t think that will ever change. It’s so touching to see how many people love Nany, and I know that she’s in heaven, surrounded by her animals that crossed with her from rainbow bridge, watching over us all, 100% calling us “Peckerheads.” I love you so much Nany, thank you for teaching me your ways so that I also can be great, just like you. 💕
