Corinne L. was born on June 10, 1948 in Detroit, Michigan. She passed away on November 5, 2012 in Livonia, Michigan with her family by her side.
Corinne was always ahead of the times and excelled at everything she tried. While in High School she was an active member of the band and Student Council. Following High School she went on to further her education earning a BS Business degree from Walsh College. She was an extremely hard and dedicated worker, earning Enrolled Agent Status with the IRS, and becoming a franchise owner of several area Liberty Tax Services. She was proud to work with the Garden City Chamber of Commerce.
Corinne most enjoyed spending time with her family. She listed the birth of her children, grandchildren and even great granddaughter as the proudest moments of her life. She loved creating memories with her family, from going to Tiger's games with her son, or a hot air balloon ride, even being teased by her family for her "hoarder" tendencies. She even saved her sister from drowning at one point. An avid golfer, she won the Women's Championship three times.
Corinne was the loving wife of Gerald "Toby", whom she married on April 18, 1986. Cherished mother of Amy Donagan, Jeffery Walters, Wendy (Michael) Merz and David (Jennifer) Hemry.
