Corinne was a lifelong and active member of St. Mark’s Episcopal Church, serving as the church secretary for 17 years and on a myriad of committees including the vestry. Always active in the community including the Scottish Heritage Society, Conemaugh Township PTA and Richland Community Center. Corinne was an excellent card and game player, and many fun nights were spent with family and friends playing scrabble, nines, and progressive rummy.
