Vi, we all loved Corinne like family! My four kids endearingly called her 'Grandma Corinne' - and she loved the title. Every July she would join us for my Kevin's birthday celebration beginning with a movie at the theatre in Gardner. I so remember one July in particular, she laughed her spirited infectious laugh and got everyone in the theatre doing the same! She was so much fun to play cards with and take pontoon rides with- thanks for the beautiful memories Gramma Corinne…we love you and we're blessed to have you in our lives…love, Cindy Mccusker

Vi, so sorry about Corinne's passing. It was nice to see both of you at the summer concerts in Gardner. I remember fondly Ken and I playing cards at your house in Ashby with you and Percy and Corinne and George. Keeping you in my prayers!
