Simcoe with Pastor Derek Wilhelmus officiating.  Private Interment: Chapel Hill Memorial Gardens, Stoney Creek.  In lieu of flowers, those wishing to donate in memory of Corinne are asked to consider the Rural Life Mission, the Alzheimer’s Society or a charity of one’s choice.  Special thanks to the staff of Cedarwood Village LTC for your care over the past 17 months.  Personal online condolences at (519) 426-0199
