Grandma and I never had the stereotypical grandmother granddaughter relationship. We never sat alone and watched television or baked cookies, but I do believe that we felt peace around each other, and that was all that was needed. I remember always feeling comfortable to do whatever I pleased when I was in her presence; such as building blanket forts using her walker as the structure or just dazing out of her window. But when together, I not only felt peace, but also happiness. My favorite times were when we would go out to lunch and she would laugh so hard that she could not stop smiling. At those times, she would remind me that family and laughter is the most important factor to life. And though I do wish that I had more time to create a relationship with her, I know that we both loved each other in our own special way.

Every visit back home in the last six years has been started or ended (and sometimes bookended) by a visit to see Grandma. I made sure to play through a series of records from her collection while she regaled me about the Southern California she knew and loved or the time she sat on stage while Frank Sinatra was singing. Though the view from her apartment was often quite stunning, I spent the majority of my time in these moments watching her light up as she recalled a new memory of a life lived to its fullest. I can’t express how much these moments mean to me and I feel beyond blessed to have grown so close to my Grandma and spent many full afternoons doing nothing but talking, listening to Jazz, and admiring the mountains. I love you, Grandma, you will be greatly missed.

Living in St. Louis, we only had the opportunity to see Corrine at family events like her grandson Mack's high school graduation. But it didn't take much time with Corrine to recognize her commitment to and pride in her family. Corrine's is a life to celebrate. Corrine's quality as a human being shines through her son, who carries on her deep family commitment as a loving son, husband, father, uncle and brother in law. We love you Jeff and thank Corrine for raising you so well!

My beautiful friend. Friends come and go in our lives, but Corinne found a place so deep in my heart that she will always be with me., and I know that she felt the same way about me, because she told me so many times. We shared a bond that time could not break. 73 years . I miss her so very much. Love to you my dear, dear friend. Vonnie

I loved visiting Corinne in the afternoon. I would find her listening to jazz and watching the sun set over the Rocky Mountains so clearly visible from her high rise apartment in Denver. She was a gracious hostess - quick to offer a glass of wine and potato chips with onion dip (her favorite). We talked of best selling books and current events. Her memory for detail always astounded me. I was able to share my life with Corinne for more than 30 years. My family and I will miss her greatly. - Camille Cooper (daughter-in-law)

I knew Corinne for over 30 years. What I observed was a loving mother. Her son, Jeff, is my son-in - law. I know he loved her. How do I know? He was always so considerate, caring, and loving to her.
I wish all of the family peaceful memories.
