Coralie was a homemaker for many years before working for Citizen's Bank and Tinnin Enterprises. She was a longtime member of Beta Sigma Phi sorority and continued to meet socially with her sorority sisters until her death.
Coralie was an excellent seamstress, a cake baker and decorator extraordinaire and a gracious hostess and talented cook. Her backyard was her pride and joy and was always filled with beautiful flowers and shrubs.
She was so proud of her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren and was a second mom to many of her nieces and nephews. Coralie was the force that drew the family together and she loved them all unconditionally.
She was comforted by her faith and her church family as well as her many special neighbors who lovingly watched over her.
