Having lived through the depression, working during WWII at Tinker AFB in Oklahoma City she endured a lifetime of pain and sorrow always coming out ahead. With her southern upbringing Corene instilled upon her family the compassion, the love for each other and to lend a hand to those in need or less fortunate. During the 50’s while living in downtown Sacramento she would fix a meal for the Hobo’s just off the trains and open the basement so they had a safe place to sleep, she would never turn anyone away. Learning to finally drive in her 60’s, her and Ms. Liz were always coming, going and doing for others. Corene was an independent lady living in her own home until a brutal home invasion robbery in 2001. After that she became a member of the Sutter Senior Care Program which allowed her to stay in her home another 2 years before entering Florin Health Care. Special thanks to Sutter Senior Care and Florin Health Care (Rosemary) you’re going to miss that mischievous grin!) For all the special care and love they gave. You all were wonderful and so supportive. Mom / Grandma, we will always love and miss you. What an inspiration you were for all of us!!!!!.
