PHOTO Mr. Thompson, who lived in Baltimore's Glendale section, died of cancer April 26 at St. Agnes Hospital.
Born and raised in Baltimore, Mr. Thompson was a 1944 graduate of Polytechnic Institute and earned an engineering degree in 1960 from the Johns Hopkins University. He served in the Army Air Forces late in World War II.
He began his engineering career working with Whiting-Turner Construction Co. on the Bay Bridge. In 1952, he established his company. Early projects included the Stevenson Mews and Richardson Mews housing developments, named after his sons. He retired in 1990. The company was dissolved in 1993.
He is survived by his former wife, the former Lillian Krauk; two sons, Stephan A. Thompson of Glyndon and Richard W. Thompson of Monkton; a daughter, Lisa Glennon of Towson; and six grandchildren.
Doris E. Flanigan, a homemaker and retired teacher, died May 2 from complications of rheumatoid arthritis at Good Samaritan Nursing Center. She was 80.
Raised in Baltimore, the former Doris Everett was a 1933 graduate of Seton High School and graduated summa cum laude in 1937 from St. Joseph College in Emmitsburg, receiving its highest academic honor, the Carrell Medal.
She taught English and writing at Hamilton Junior High School and history and business at Forest Park High School for several years.
She was married in 1941 to Dr. Edward A. Flanigan Jr. They lived in Highlandtown, where she assisted him in his family medical practice. They moved to Mayfield in 1961.
After her husband's death in 1971, Mrs. Flanigan taught remedial reading at Maryland Rehabilitation Center on Argonne Drive from 1974 until retiring in 1986.
A daughter, Susan Conrad of Middle River, said her mother had the ability to make people feel "special," and that her door was always open to those in need. "Bishops and beggars had sat at her dinner table," Mrs. Conrad said."
Mrs. Flanigan was an active communicant of St. Francis of Assisi Roman Catholic Church, where a Mass of Resurrection was offered Monday.
Other survivors include three sons, Edward A. Flanigan III and William E. Flanigan, both of Baltimore, and Jerome P. Flanigan of Bowie; two other daughters, Kathleen F. Balcer of Edgemere and Nancy F. Curran of Stone Mountain, Ga.; two brothers, William E. Everett of Baltimore and James G. Everett of Annandale, Va.; two sisters, Nancy E. Quinn of Annapolis and Patricia E. Brown of Fort Myers Beach, Fla.; and 21 grandchildren.
