Carol Agnes Thorpe, age 69, went home to be with her Lord on Tuesday, September 4, 2018.

Carol was born in an old farmhouse in Jessup, Maryland on April 6, 1949. She is the third of eight children of Ross and Doris Busick.

She resided in Zeeland for 40 years. Carol worked as an executive secretary for several years at Holland Motor Express and later with her husband at East End Radiator. She was loving, honest, faithful and forgiving. Carol didn't just tell you how she felt, she showed it. She led by example and supported others anyway she knew how.
