Emma Marie Thorpe

Newport, N.H. — Emma Marie Thorpe, 85, passed away at the Seasons at Summercrest on Thursday, Aug. 14, 2013.

Emma was born in Saugus, Mass., Jan. 11, 1928, daughter to the late George Washington and Daisy Charlotte (Nelson) Thulin. She married Harry Andrew Thorpe on July 31, 1949, and the adventure began. In nearly 60 years of marriage, they moved often and traveled extensively. With every new home, Emma made new friends and quickly became involved in the community and the church.

She is survived by her children, Andrea Thorpe of Newport, Suzanne McEmber of Libertyville, Ill., Brian Thorpe of St. Augustine, Fla., Melinda Thorpe of Newport, Elizabeth Melby of Minneapolis, Minn.; her grandchildren, James, Caitlin, Leah, John, Alison, Ian; and twin great-grandsons. She was predeceased by her husband and her granddaughter, Corin Thorpe.

A private burial will take place at St. Patrick’s Cemetery in Newport at a later date.

There will be no Calling Hours. In lieu of flowers, please consider an act of kindness in Emma’s memory.

The family wishes to extend their deep appreciation to Emma’s other family, the staff of the Seasons at Summercrest. The loving care and attention she received at Seasons was extraordinary.
