Obituary for Daphne Tompkins

Daphne  Tompkins
Wife, mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother Daphne Elizabeth Gandy Tompkins went to the Lord June 28, 2018.

Born in Houston on March 7, 1932, to Sterling and Alice Kelly Gandy. She is survived by her husband of 65 years, Stephen Howard Tompkins, and her three children Natalie, Karen and Stephen who all live in the Houston area. She is also survived by four grandchildren and their spouses, as well as four great-grandchildren: Amelia, Alaina, Nathaniel and Hailey.

Daphne graduated from Jefferson Davis High School in 1950. She met the love of her life in Houston and they married in May, 1953. Most recently, Daphne lived in Katy, Texas where she enjoyed visits from family and talking about growing up in Houston.

Daphne will be remembered as a strong and fierce leader of her family. She set the example for putting aside disagreements, and to love and support each other in spite of our differences. Daphne will also be remembered for her love of children. She had a way of making any child in her life feel loved regardless of the circumstance that brought the child to her.

Services for Daphne will be at St. Edith Stein Catholic Church, 3311 N. Fry Road, Katy, TX 77449 on Tuesday, July 3, 2018 at 11am with a burial to immediately follow at Woodlawn Garden of Memories. Visitation will begin an hour prior to the service.

For those who prefer to make a donation in her memory in lieu of flowers: Houston Hospice, 1905 Holcombe Blvd., Houston, TX 77030, (713) 468-2441.
