Lizzie Price Thompson (January 9, 1894 – July 20, 1973) completed the term of her husband, C.W. Thompson, in the Louisiana House of Representatives, having served as the Webster Parish lawmaker from 1951–1952. Thompson died in the seventh year of his legislative service, and Governor Earl K. Long appointed Mrs. Thompson to finish the term. There was insufficient time remaining to require a special election to choose a temporary legislator. The Thompsons were from the village of Doyline, Louisiana, in south Webster Parish.
Mrs. Thompson did not run for a full term in the 1952 Democratic primary. E.D. Gleason of the Evergreen Community near Shongaloo in central Webster Parish was elected to the seat. He remained representative until he too died in office in 1959. At that point Governor Long in the last year of his own gubernatorial term named Gleason's widow, Mary Smith Gleason, to finish the term.
The Thompsons are interred at Doyline Cemetery.
