Edwina Thompson Continuing Her Journey

A fifth-generation Californian who commenced her journey in Porterville 21 June 1942 and settled in Agua Dulce just prior to 1980, Edwina Thompson continued by going on her own everlasting trail ride on Wednesday, 12 January 2011.

Edwina was most happy while horseback.  She commuted to work in Los Angeles every day, where she was a senior legal assistant with O’Melveny & Myers LLP and then with Katten Muchin Rosenman LLP.  Although her commute was a long one, she never complained; because she knew on the weekend her time would be spent in and around her home, and involving her animals.  

She always had a big smile and something nice to say.

She was active with her horses in the cutting arena and actively competed for many years.  In recent years she had spent most of her time on the trail, she participated with Equestrian Trails Group locally, and regularly rode with some of her neighbors.

Preceded by her parents Edwin and Bernice Thompson, Edwina left behind her beloved horses Montequila Gold and Ruby San, her cousins Jim Epperson, Ruth Schieck, Leon Barris, and Vic Barris, as well as her friends and neighbors.
