On oxygen and bed-bound, Thorson hung on for eight months. The well-read woman braved nights alone after assistants went home.

“She said, ‘I’ve lived so much of my life in my mind, using my imagination, thinking up my own stories if I can’t watch television.’ And even in the end, that’s what she did,” Janice Robidoux said. “She had a wonderful mind.”

Thorson didn’t want services. In her memory, friends plan to plant a magnolia tree at the Cunningham.

Thorson was preceded in death by parents Knute and Marie and brother Louis. Survivors include a brother, Jim, nieces, nephews and friends.
