On November 15, 2020 Deaconess Christine Horton Thorpe transitioned this old earthly world for a better eternal life with God. Christine Horton Thorpe was born to the late Fred Douglas and Gladys Crudup Horton on September 12, 1932 in Wake County, North Carolina. Christine married the late Deacon Captain William H.

Christine was a graduate of James E. Shepard High School in Zebulon, North Carolina. She attended North Carolina A&T State University, Greensboro, North Carolina where she received Certificates in Food Nutrition.

Christine was employed by the Wake County School System as a Food Nutrition Manager for thirty (30) years. Everyone loved her cooking, especially her home-made cinnamon rolls, buttery yeast rolls and coconut cake.

Deaconess Thorpe was a long-standing member of the Pleasant Grove Baptist Church in Wendell, NC. Christine was very active in church where she served as Secretary of the Centennial Committee (1963), Missionary Board, Senior Choir and Deaconess Board.
