In memory of
Carole Thompson Neidhardt
Carole Thompson Neidhardt It is with great sadness that we inform you that Carole Thompson Neidhardt passed peacefully at home on December 20, 2020 in the company of her family. She was also known in the Real Estate Industry and to her Clients as Carole Jackson Thompson, a name she used in her business for over 35 years. She fought a courageous battle with Cancer for over four years with her husband George who cared for her lovingly until the end. She left behind a large adoring family and many friends who admired her warmth, generosity, and poise. Carole enjoyed her work as a Real Estate professional serving Orange County and the surrounding areas which she accomplished with rigor and the highest standards. She gave her clients the time and attention that was required regardless of the size of the transaction. She received numerous awards for her sales performance and commitment to solving the needs of her Clients. However, her greatest accomplishment was her devotion to her family: her son Dr. Ryan Thompson and his wife Kristin and their children Finley and Reese; and her extended family of Andrew Thompson and his wife Amber Dawn and his children Amber and Drew; Leslie Hatfield and her husband Scott and her daughters Marlee and Macie; Nancy Neidhardt and her son Ryan O'Connell; Lance Hultgren and his wife Teffaney and their children Tess and Cora; Steve Neidhardt; her brother Carey and his children Matthew, Jonathan and Nathaniel and her many Cousins. These relationships were the core and joy of her life as was the friendship she shared with so many people. She began her life in Santiago, Chile on July 22nd 1952 where she was born to Miriam Haynes Jackson and John C. Jackson who were missionaries in those years. Her heritage included three generations of clergy on her maternal side, most notably her grandparents Melvin and Lois Hodges who worked as missionaries from 1929 to 1978 throughout Central America and the Caribbean. After returning with her parents to the U.S. in 1957 she spent her early childhood in Springfield, MIssouri until the family moved to Southern California in 1967. She lived for periods of time in Lake County, Illinois, New York City, and Dallas, Texas but most of her life was spent in Orange County where she raised her youngest son Ryan, and contributed time and energy to organizations such as the Boys and Girls Club as a fund raiser and Member of the Board. Her career of more than 35 years at McGarvey-Clark, Prudential and Reliance Realty's brought her recognition through numerous awards and an active business throughout the region as she met and assisted the needs of a large number of grateful homeowners. She married her husband George Neidhardt on January 3, 2015 at a ceremony of family and friends at Heritage Palms Country Club, a loving and caring community where they resided and continued to live until her passing. Carole was warm, generous, loyal, and principled in equal measure. She could be simultaneously elegant, discriminating, and fierce. While she was a discerning stylist, her surroundings were enlivened by her effervescent spirit and now seem empty and inanimate in her absence. Many of us who loved her will remember her beauty, sweetness, and devotion to friends and family. In the end, most of us will count our lives successful if we have had love and mattered to someone. Carole's life was full of love and she leaves behind her an emptiness where her smile, her kind spirit, and charming warmth graced and filled our lives. A Celebration of her life will be held when it is safe to gather.
