Corrine and I were not only friends, we also worked together in our church nursery for 3 years. Corrine worked in the nursery for 17 years, and she absolutely loved it. She loved the children as if they were her own. Corrine was so beautiful inside and out. She was always happy and had such a sweet disposition about her. She was very loved.

Corine was a dependable and loving care giver in our nursery at St. Maximilian Kolbe Catholic Church in Houston. I remember having lots of happy conversations with her as I passed her as she cared for the babies while parents attended Mass in peace.

Sweet Corine. You were kind, thoughtful, generous and always thinking of others. You gave countless hours to your church and to anyone who needed your help. You were a good friend to Barbara and to many others who were lucky enough to call you their friend. You will truly be missed, rest in peace.

I will truly miss Ms. Corine. She was a joyful, wonderful woman the time I knew her. She was a fiesty very neat old lady. Oh, and I can’t forget very quick and sharp with her tongue. I loved having her at my care home and she will be missed. Thanks to God and the family for allowing me to care for her🙏🙏🙏
