Corinne Joy (Hill) Rodriguez(1950-2012)

Corinne Joy Hill Rodriguez, 62, departed this world to be with the Lord, on September 9, 2012 at the home of her son, John Bazo in Beverly Hills, FL.

Joy was born in Arlington, VA June 30, 1950. She graduated from Warren County High School in Front Royal, VA in 1968. She received her Nursing Degree from the Alexandria School of Nursing in 1972.

Joy was a past member and participant in the Old Dominion 100 mile Equestrian Race. She loved riding and raising horses as well as many other outdoor pursuits including aircraft flying and scuba diving. She was a member of the Seven Rivers Presbyterian Church in Lecanto, FL.

Joy was an inspiration to those around her, always focusing on the good things, no matter how bad the situation. Her smile and good nature could lift the spirits of all who came into contact with her. We will miss her kind heart and gentle spirit.
