Carole Smalley

Carole Lee Smalley (Thorp) was born June 29, 1933 in California to Herald T Mackay and Verna Mae Talbert and went to be with Jesus March 6, 2021.

Carole applied her lead foot to any adventure she tackled from serving two years as a missionary on Mercy Ships in Africa to backpacking Mt. Whitney in her 60’s or getting an English degree as a Gramma. After being a bookkeeper, she let her extrovert run wild being a photojournalist for the paper. Carole drove ‘G’masTxi’ for many years, fitting us around her roadbike and gear, and was a diligent cheerleader for her family.

Carole never met a stranger. She loved her chickens, photography, a good margarita (or two), showing her horse Saber, singing at the Springtown Methodist Church, quilting, reading great saucy novels and making everyone smile.

Donations accepted at Mercy Ships International in her memory. Memorial info at www.dignitymemorial. com/obituaries/loveland-co/ carole-smalley-10087901

She is survived by her children, Mark and Joann Rushton, Gerry Rushton and Stacy Hennessy, Judyrose and Rex Layfield plus five grandchildren and eight great-grandchildren.
