Obituary : Charles Edward Thorp

Charles Edward Thorp, 62, passed away Friday, June 14, 1946, at his home following an illness of two weeks. He had suffered a stroke. He was born at Storm Lake, Iowa, and lived here for nearly 30 years. He developed the Thorp special raspberry and had marketed these fine plants throughout the Pacific Northwest. The berry strain was so marked that the Stark Nursery Company had tried hard to purchase it from Mr. Thorp but he declined to sell. Funeral rites were held Monday at 2:00 p.m. from the Moon Chapel with the Rev. Merrill C. Skaug officiating. Interment followed in Pinecrest Cemetery. The Eagles Lodge of which he was a member, had charge of the services. Surviving are his widow, Augusta, three brothers, Roy, Sandpoint; George, Kelso, Washington; and John, Monroe, Washington; three sisters, Mrs. Mary Powell and Mrs. Nina Martin, Sandpoint; and Mrs. Florence Stellpflue, Black Diamond, Washington.
