Corkey was one of my favorite babysitters growing up. She had a wonderful sense of humor and was lots of fun to be around. She was a dear friend to my family and will truly be missed.

To Corky's family,

With our deepest condolences.
Corky will be greatly missed by her parish family at Our Lady of Grace Church. She was a pillar of our community and did so much for so many people in her quiet, unassuming way.

You are in our thoughts and prayers.

I knew Coralie since I was a young girl growing up in Colchester. She was a good friend of my best friend Sharon and I. They rode horses together. She was a very good person - quiet and self contained, but with a great sense of humor. A person you could count on to do the right thing. She will be missed by many.
