Carolyn E. Rhinehart, 67, of Hagerstown, Md., went to be with the Lord on Thursday, March 10, 2011, after a year-and-half-long battle with cancer surrounded by family and friends at her home.

Born July 6, 1943, in Cumberland, Md., she was the daughter of the late Lolya Thorpe and Herbert E. Comer.

She was preceded in death by her husband of 34 years, Russell Leroy Rhinehart, as well as her oldest granddaughter, Tamara Galbus.

She is survived by three sons, Robert Galbus of Martinsburg, W.Va., and wife, Darlene; Kenneth Galbus Jr. of Falling Waters, W.Va., and wife, Lauri; and Vincent Galbus, of Hagerstown; two daughters, Terri Jones and Melody Timmerman, of Hagerstown; grandchildren, Angie Jones of Hagerstown; Derek and Alisha Galbus of Falling Waters; Robert Pierson of Martinsburg; and Dimetia Divelbliss of Montgomery County, Md.; and great-granddaughters, Tiffany and Victoria Galbus, of Martinsburg. Carol is also survived by one sister, Margaret Hull, of Dayton, Ohio, and numerous nieces and nephews.

Carol was employed at D & P Coin-Op Laundromat for over 20 years. She was a caregiver for family friend Marlowe Taylor for 14 years at her home, until Marlowe's death in 2009.  

Private services will be held at the convenience of the family.
