She was united in marriage with Clarence E. Rose on December 31, 1945 and they raised two children, Douglas A. Rose of Kiowa and Nancy R. Copeland of Phoenix, Arizona.
She was employed at The Kiowa News as news editor and typist for eighteen years and had retired in 1985. She was a faithful member of the Kiowa United Methodist Church, dedicated and involved teaching first and second grade Sunday School for many years.

Corrine loved her family and friends and helping them in any way she could always gave her great pleasure. It was the simple things around her in life that she never took for granted, commenting daily how fortunate and thankful she was.

She wants us all to know, "God is good, all the time and all the time, God is good!"
