Kathryn C. Thorp, age 80 of Granville, passed away Sunday night at Kendal at Granville.

She was born March 6, 1937 in Newark to Gene and Dorothy (Geddes) Conner.

She was a Girl Scouts executive before marrying David W. Thorp in 1960. Kathryn was a brilliant woman who quietly made better the lives of all who encountered her.
