Charlotte Mae (Hansen) Thorpe, 87, of Merriam, KS, passed away September 16, 2021. 

Charlotte was born April 22, 1934 in Amery, WI, and grew up in Balsam Lake, WI.  She was the younger of 2 children of Axel and Mayme (Pedersen) Hansen.  Along with her parents, Charlotte was preceded in death by her brother, Merle Hansen, and her spouse Charles Thorpe.  She was a graduate of Milltown High School in Milltown, WI.  She was united in marriage to her lifelong partner Charles Thorpe on May 29, 1965 in Joplin, MO. 

She was baptized as one of Jehovah’s Witnesses on October 28, 1951.  This was one of the most important decisions of her life, and she served faithfully until her death sharing the beautiful hope for the future that the Bible offers. Her husband Charles worked for TWA beginning in 1968, and they enjoyed traveling for many years together. She was a generous, hardworking person, and a very good cook, who was there for her friends and family in ways too numerous to recount. 

Charlotte leaves her daughter, Julene Eisenhauer, her grandchildren, Brittan Calfee, Mayme Calfee, Charles Loren Eisenhauer, and Attalina Eisenhauer, one great granddaughter, Sophyiah Calfee, her beloved nieces and nephews, and their families, dear extended family, along with many, many beloved friends.

    It was a privilege to know Charlotte and Charles. They were such a faithful and exemplory example of leading a Christian life as outlined in the Bible. We know they are resting peacefully awaiting a resurrection soon to a Paradise earth with no more pain, suffering or death.
