Obituary

Saint Matthew Thompson, a native Cincinnatian, died November 27, 2017.  After graduating from Withrow High School, Mr. Thompson enlisted in the U.S.M.C.   When his tour of duty ended, he returned to Cincinnati where he attended UC.   He became a salesman for Pennington Bread and later Pepsi Cola Bottling Company.  Mr. Thompson always had a sense of service to his fellow man.  His mother, Amanda Zora impressed upon him at an early age to  "Do what you can to make the world a little better." Taking his mother's request to heart, Mr. Thompson established Urbane Academy, a finishing and modeling school in 1959 which was located in downtown Cincinnati until 1991.  The curriculum included grooming, fashion, visual poise, social graces, speech, and fine arts and self-defense.    He also offered self-defense at the College of Mt. St. Joseph, Thomas More, NKU, UC,  as well as local businesses in the Tri-state area.  Mr. Thompson was committed to helping women feel comfortable in any situation.  Throughout the years, he never raised the tuition, wanting to make it affordable for anyone.  True to the motto of the USMC, Semper Fidelis (always faithful), Mr. Thompson continued to fight until the very end.
