Corinne Courtney Winder was an extremely loving and caring person who had a beautiful smile and an infectious sense of humor. She was always the life of the party and the positive energy in her workplace.
In her career as a home healthcare nurse, Corinne would often come home and tell stories of visiting her patients that begged for something to eat. Being the caring person that she was, it bothered her to witness people not having enough food.
She would often express,
“It’s not right!”
Upon her next visit she greeted her patients with snacks she had purchased with her own money.
On August 29, 2017 Corinne unexpectedly passed away at the age of 39.
Knowing how strongly she felt about providing food to those less fortunate, her employer, Hygeia Home Healthcare approached Corinne’s parents hoping to get their blessing to begin a food pantry in Corinne’s memory. There was definitely no question.
Hence, in December of 2020 the birth of Corinne’s Food Pantry, Inc. occurred. All of Corinne’s family are on the team, as well as many friends who knew and loved her.
Together they work very hard to continue Corinne’s passion and keep her memory alive.
Thanks to your generosity, our foundation efforts have made a significant impact.
