It is with great sadness that we announce the sudden passing of our dear Mom, Grandma (Mumma) & Great Grandma, Corinne Manuel, on March 18, 2021 at the Kirkland & District Hospital.
Corinne was born on August 13, 1931 to the late Gordon and Ida Lively. She is predeceased by her siblings Vernon, Wilfred, Vivian, Varroll, Norman, Delbert, Marion and Ida.
Corinne was also predeceased by her soulmate Donald Manuel (2017) and grandchildren Kenneth Keith, Nancy Metson & Trevor Metson.
She is survived by her children Linda(Greg) Benoit, Judy(Doug) Metson, Bob(late Delores) Manuel, Gail(Richard) Keith, Carol(Brian) Judd and Connie(George) Martell, her grandchildren Jason(Shawna) Benoit, Derrick(Jennifer) Benoit, Tracy(Daniel) Savignac, Geoffry Bathie, David(Sandy) Bathie, Bryan(Lynn) Keith, Brent(Chelsea) Keith, Kristy(Rob) Julien, Tammy(Brad) Bartley, Kim(Ted) Comba, Stephanie(Pete) Iedema, Katelin(Justin) Kelly, Andrew Martell, Yuki Martell and twenty seven great grandchildren.
Mom was happiest when she was surrounded by her family and has left us with the most wonderful memories. We will miss her endless supply of candy & chocolate to fill the grandkids pockets and her slipping them money when she thought nobody was watching.
We will always feel her loving embrace as we snuggle up with the blankets that she so skillfully crocheted for each of us.
As per Corinne's wishes, cremation has already taken place. A celebration of life will be held at a later date. Donations may be made to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation in her memory. Condolences, contributions and memorial candles may be left at www.mcdonaldfuneralhome.ca.
