Obituary for Bernice Corrin

Bernice Corrin/ Born: Bernice Morgan 12-26-23
Last earthly breath. .. 11-11-17
Bernice was wife to Charles S. Corrin Jr. and mother to B. Diane Corrin-Pinazza, She was mother in law to Mike Vogle and (super grandma) to Tony and Vincent Pinazza.
Born in Anadarko Oklahoma, to Ophie Margaret and Benjamin Morgan she lived in a tent city on NW 10th and Western in the late 1920’s. Like many other families she moved with her siblings to California during the dust bowl. She was a “Rosie the Riveter” and Ship welder during WWII. She met her lifelong love at that time. Chuck and Bernice were married in 1943. She was youngest of her siblings that she loved so much. She was preceded in death by all and their spouses as well. Mary, Earnest, Daw, Edward, Elmer, Lois, Israel- John (IJ). They all Loved to play cards and dominos.
Life moved on and she loved her family and friends. She gave more than she took and her footprint on earth was small. She did not waste, she did not speak ill of anyone. There will be no funeral service because all of her important people that would surely be there, are already waiting for her. She leaves behind her daughter, son-in –law and two wonderful grandsons. That will miss her daily. But we are happy to see her at peace.
Mama was a realist and the lessons were always present. Even as we moved through this process I learned so much. I am forever grateful to the staff of Heritage Manor for their love and kindness. They kept her clean and dry and oh so well fed. In fact she gained almost 10 Lbs. soon after arrival. After losing 40 plus Lbs. at the previous facility.
I know people say they will just die but the reality is that is not likely to happen. Most people will die in a facility and need care of some form. Please be prepared. Not only for death but for life when death does not come as you expect. Life is not always fair and death is a long ways away at times.
My mom was a beautiful, gentle and quiet soul that wished the best for everyone. Yet she taught me to stand up for what is right, not give up for things that are important, make your bed, keep your house clean, do the dishes every day and put things back where you got them. Say please and thank you. Assume the best in people and don’t believe the worst about them. You don’t have to do it their way. Just smile and move on. And best of all – don’t waste energy defending yourself when people speak ill of you. Just live your life and that is the greatest defense of all. There are many religious and spiritual things to say and this is the time where people judge others eternity, her greatest advice of all time is - just don’t. As she mouthed the words to all the old gospel music that I played this past week, from her memories as a child, I realized my mom was wiser than I likely ever gave her credit for.
Peace and love Mama. I wish you well on your journey. I am so happy for you to be free of this old Body.
Thank you to everyone that loved us through and prayed constantly for this last little phase of her long and well lived life. It was hard. But I am so grateful for the time to learn more about my mom and her life. And even more grateful that her suffering is over.
Peace, Love and Blessing to you all… Mike, Diane, Tony, Vincent
