Corrine Palmer, beloved wife, mother and friend, passed away Tuesday November 29th after a short tough battle with pancreatic cancer.
Corrine was born and raised in the Wausau, Wisconsin area. She and Chuck started dating at the University of Wisconsin and have been Badger fans ever since. In 1963, they started their married life in Cedar Rapids, Iowa with subsequent moves to Missouri, Florida, Virginia, and back to Florida before arriving at beautiful Big Canoe in 2004. While in Florida, they raised two wonderful children, Nicole and Clark. Corrine taught elementary school and focused on helping special needs children learn to read. Her love of reading meant there was always an abundance of books in the Palmer home. She volunteered at various libraries, hospitals and the Big Canoe Chapel.
A private person, Corrine was loving, caring, and loyal to her family and close friends. She was an excellent cook with recipe books and clippings everywhere. She loved dogs and walking and could be found in the company of Coco, the dog who rescued her, miles from home in Big Canoe. Corrine also loved to travel with family and later with Chuck on the many Chapel pilgrimage trips. The game of bridge was always a part of her adult life. She loved to play with the ladies of Big Canoe and gave them a hard time about upgrading their game.
Corrine is survived by loving family: husband Chuck, daughter Nicole Brook of Roswell, GA and son Clark Palmer with his wife Tanya from Jupiter, FL.
