Queen A. Rivera Thompson

March 18, 1965 – March 31, 2024


Hello Everyone! My name is Queen A. Rivera Thompson, and I would like to welcome you to my home going service. I want to start giving a shout out to my wonderful mother for always loving and supporting me. As I sit here, and reflect I know that my time is near. I know that I am not perfect, but then again none of us are. I always thought the people I cherished and loved the most would be by my side. Those people only “Pretended” to love me as my sickness progressed, they were only around to “Take” and “Give Nothing In Return“. I still loved and had faith in them, but as my time on this earth grows nearer to God, they “Abandoned” me. They would like the world to believe that they were supportive and, in my corner, but in the end, they were “NOWHERE” to be found.

My family, loyal friends and loved ones were with me to the very end. I know you are confused by the first- person language. I can explain. Before I was too sick, I prepared my obituary while I still remembered what was genuine or not. As I lay here in my hospital bed gazing out the window, I can only pray for those who were dear to my heart, those who professed to love me but instead abandoned me. I pray they seek forgiveness within themselves and repent. Just know that I have forgiven all and wish you well.

Now a little bit about myself. I was a fun and loving person. I loved to have fun and more importantly I loved kids. I had always wanted kids but was unable to have any. I worked with special needs kids for over 25 years at The Communities of Don Guanella and Divine Providence. I was a hard worker who loved to work. I loved working with kids (this is whom I believed them to be in my heart) because they loved me unconditionally. I was a flashy dresser, meaning I always loved to look and smell good. I took great pride in my appearance. I loved all sports, but I was a true Eagles diehard fan, and it did help that my favorite color was green. I loved dancing, swimming, grilling food, going to the beach and Marsh Creek.

I had exquisite but expensive taste in food. Some of my favorite foods included: Lobster, crab, mussels, oysters, steak, trotters (pig’s feet), and chitterlings. I loved going to different places, but most of all I enjoyed spending time with my family! I live, I Laughed, and most importantly I LOVED!!

I was also know as Ben which is a nickname that I was given by my father William Aikens (deceased). I am preceded in death by my sister and best friend Georgina Rivera and survived by my mother Queen, my BEAUTIFUL sisters Robin, Fe, Jackie, and Jan. I am also survived by two honorary kids, nieces and nephews, Sherita, Robert, Mauryce, Ricky, Bianca, Thena, Taja, Najee, Lily, Brooke, Evin, Charly, Tobias (Mr. T) and Isabella (Princess). I am also survived by a host of Aunts, Uncles, and, cousins, and my friend Babybop for over 30 years.
