Corrie was dedicated to her community which appreciated and respected her contributions.  Corrie’s positive attitude was immeasurable and she will forever be remembered for her kind heart and being the voice of reason.  Regardless of the situation she remained solid in her positive perspective and encouraged those around her to do the same.  Her strength was unwavering, her grace a gift to us all and her beauty will be timeless.  Corrie touched several lives both personally and professionally.  She served as a probation officer for over 25 years.  She held a special relationship with her colleagues and worked closely and in collaboration with the Brantford Police Services.  Corrie was the recipient of the Lifetime in Law Enforcement Achievement Award for her exceptional leadership, dedication and passion for her work.  She also received an Exemplary Service Medal from The Office of the Secretary to the Governor General which expresses national gratitude for long and commendable service and recognizes employees dedicated to preserving Canada’s public safety.  Friends are invited to share their memories of Corrie with her family at the JASON SMITH FUNERAL CHAPEL, 689 Norfolk St. North Simcoe N3Y 3R3 for visitation on Thursday, March 24th, 2022 from 2-4 and 6-8 p.m.  A funeral service will be held at Calvary Church, Ireland Rd.
