THORP; Moreen Margaret
April 27th, 1929 – July 3rd, 2016
Moreen M. Thorp (nee Hamar) died in Chilliwack on July 3, 2016, at the age of 87, following a long decline due to Alzheimer’s disease. Predeceased by her parents Olive Hazel Hamar & Alfred G.G. Hamar, her siblings Olive Trego, Lucille Siemens, Nairn Hamar, and two previous husbands Raymond L. Spani & David Evans. Survived by husband, Harold Thorp, children Mary & Howard Spani, grandchildren Moreen Brooks & Daniel Goodrich, great-grandchildren Jonathon & Marissa Brooks, stepchildren Wendy Smith & Cindy Evans, Sharon Giesbrecht & Debbie Wooffinden, and their families. She was also a favourite aunt – “Auntie Reeny” – to many nieces & nephews. A courageous traveller, Mom has left us with many stories and memories of her adventures. She was a very active supporter & participant in community theatre where ever she resided: in New Westminster with Vagabond Players, in Roslyn (Washington), in Hixon, BC with Canyon Creek Players & in Chilliwack with Chilliwack Players Guild. The family wishes to express deep thanks to the nursing and care-giving staff at Eden Care Centre, and especially to Dr. Ralph Jones. At Mom’s request, there will be no funeral or memorial service. In lieu of flowers, for those who wish to honour Moreen, the family asks that you support your local community theatre, however you can.
