Corrine was such a wonderful lady with a beautiful voice! She always shared a smile! She is probably in heaven sharing a certain story about Mike, Joanie and myself when we were kids! RIP sweet Corrine.

She made the best goulash in the business, always a good time spending the holidays playing cards as Aunt Correne was open to conversation whenever we came to town in the later years.

I am so very sorry for Correne’s family and yet so happy for Correne, herself. She is safe in the loving arms of Jesus. I first met her in Kapers back in the day and always LOVED her voice! “THEE“ trio around town provided enjoyment beyond measure to countless people, myself included. Now she’s singing in the choir of choirs! God bless her family and friends with His comfort and peace. Wendy Christman
