Age 90, formerly of Manteno, passed away Monday, January 30, 2017 at Smith Crossing Assisted Living in Orland Park, IL. Corinne was born in Beckemeyer, IL, was raised in Gary, IN, and lived most of her adult life in Dolton, IL and Manteno, IL.

She enjoyed arts and crafts, painting, sewing, ballroom dancing, and traveling across the U.S. and internationally. Over the years she amassed a sizable collection of angels and always wore an angel pin. Today she becomes an angel to watch over her family.
