Coriene was an active and vibrant person. She was an excellent cook who loved to entertain family and friends. She was an avid gardener and generously shared her harvest. She loved music, dancing, singing, playing cards and traveling. Later in her life, she took up crocheting and created beautiful pieces. She always took a great interest in her grandchildren and great-grandchildren, showering them with hugs and kisses every chance she got. She loved her church and she loved God; always ending her visits with “God Bless You.”
