Lisa Thompson of Medway dedicated her career to public service
By Theresa Knapp
A GoFundMe account has been set up for the Thompson family of Medway.
Lisa Thompson, 38, died suddenly on April 29 leaving behind two sons, Dylan, 14, and Bentley, 2, and husband Craig.
Lisa was working as a full-time firefighter with the Southborough Fire Department, a recent accomplishment of which she was very proud, and had previously worked as a call firefighter for the towns of Medway and Sherborn. She was a longtime supporter of public service including her husband’s service as a Millis Police Officer and Air Force Reservist.
Sgt. John Shearns of the Millis Police Department has known the Thompson family for more than 10 years.

“Craig was a police officer a while before Lisa got involved in public safety. She was a huge supporter of Craig and public safety in general,” says Shearns. “About six months prior to her death, she got hired full-time for Southborough. Craig was incredibly proud of her, the kids were obviously proud.”
Lisa died suddenly at home from an unknown medical issue. The GoFundMe was created to help the Thompson family meet expenses.
“We’d like to see as much help for Craig and his two kids as possible,” says Shearns. “The family is definitely going to need help going forward.”
