    My condolences to the family & friends. I remember many evenings playing while my parents, Nick & Irene played cards with Evers, Graderts, O'Conners, and Shockeys. I'm sure the games are continuing in Heaven.

    Deepest sympathy to your family.   I can recall many fun times with Corrine and her Mom and Dad.   When I was a kid they were at our home for Christmas Eve.   My Mom had no siblings so she was very close to Viola.  Also, Viola and Corrine, my Mom and my sisters played bridge for many years. We had lunch and sure had fun times!   She now is with your Dad in heaven.  God's blessings to your families, Terry and Sherri.   Carol and Bunker Hill

        Our thoughts and prayers are with you. Grieving is hard work. Treasure the memories. I will miss her laugh and jovial attitude. She was an excellent card player yet humble when she won. We'll miss her. Be assured that she loved her family with all her heart.

    I have so many wonderful memories of Corrine and Paul! They played cards with my parents-Nick & Irene- for decades.  They spent many evenings at our house laughing & having so much fun! Corrine was always ready to fill-in whenever a card player was needed! I’ll always remember her smile and upbeat attitude! Our condolences. Craig and Jane (Nichols) Elsasser
