RIP Aunt Corrine. You were always so humble and loved the people in your life with everything you had. I don't think you knew what an inspiration you were. You will be missed terribly 💕

To know you, was to love you. I will never know another soul who is as giving, selfless, and as loving as you. I, and the rest of our family, are blessed to have had you as our own personal real life angel. You have touched the hearts and lives’ of everyone around you and will not be forgotten. I bet your reunion with Grandpa, Bill, and Bob was beautiful. See you in the next life. ❤️

Corrine was the most giving lady I have ever known. She was always helping others and didn't want anything in return. I'm sure she is already cooking in Heaven. She loved her family so much. Farewell to a great lady-there are so many people who are going to miss her and her big smile.
