It is a special memory having Corry as a neighbor. Many times I sat with her at potlucks, bingo, and bunco here in Stonebrook. She was always kind and a joy to be around. I loved to hear her talk and I’m sure my Southern accent countered hers. I’ve looked at the photos and see what a loving family she has. She was blessed and so are the ones left behind.

We will miss you dearly. Miss seeing you at your fun family parties, miss running into you at the mall... miss having you help keep an extra eye on our kids at 94 years old! We feel so grateful that God blessed us with the gift of getting to know such a wonderful woman! And we will continue to feel those blessings even with you in Heaven because you've left a special legacy in this world: your incredible family. What beautiful, loving and kind daughters you have raised! Who, in turn, have made their own kind, good families. Generations of good people and we are so lucky to know them! We are grateful to you, you will always hold a special place in our hearts. Love always, The Garlicks
