Judith Marie Thomasson, 79, of Longview, passed away Nov. 23, 2022, at The Arbor in Bremerton.
She was born Dec. 10, 1942, in Miles City, Mont., to Michael and Zella (Ewalt) Dinardi. Judith attended schools in Missoula, Mont. She joined the Marine Corps and received her basic training at Parris Island before being stationed at Camp Pendleton, Calif.
