Corrine was a loving and amazing wife, mother, grandmother, and great grandmother. She loved taking care of her family and had a love for all children. She was a wonderful cook. She didn't need a recipe because she never measured anything! She was always there for us with a smile, a hug and encouraging words. She never disciplined us but always let Dad know about it when he got home!
Corrine was a member of the Bertram Cumberland Presbyterian church and during this time she kept the nursery, work the in the kitchen, helped with vacation bible school and served on various committees. Corrine loved her church, her God and her church family.
Corrine also known as "Grandma" spent many fun hours watching grandkids play sports. She enjoyed many family vacations and loved Dr. Peppers, snickers and ice cream. She enjoyed life to the fullest and was always happy and content. She was the happiest person we have ever known and loved to laugh, joke and tease. We miss her already, our family chain is broken and nothing seems the same but as God calls us one by one, the chain will link again.
