Treasured wife of 69 years, of Norbert. Dearest mother of Diane (William) Kalmer, Susan (William) Wanasek, James (Christine) and Joan (Anthony) Handzlik. Fun loving grandmother of nine and great-grandmother of two. Sister to Lloyd (Charlene) Buss. Also survived by nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.

Forest Home Ave., Hales Corners, WI. Corinne married her high school sweetheart in 1944. They spent the first two years in New York while Corinne worked for the Civil Service and Norbert served with the U.S. Coast Guard during WWII. When the war ended they settled in Hales Corners and began their family. After raising four children she became the secretary to the principal at Whitnall High School. Corinne's main focus was her family. She also loved to entertain and was extremely active in her community and church. She was an avid golfer, bowler, bridge player, shopper and antique buff. While her presence will be missed, her beautiful spirit will be with us always. The family sincerely thanks the incredible nursing staff on 4SW for their compassionate care.
