    I am so sorry to hear about Coralie. I remember her well as Marie would trust me, to sit with Coralie, whenever she had errands to do. I was in high school, 7 years younger than Coralie, and I can remember how excited she would be when I walked through the door. She would show me her projects and her baby doll. We would sit and use a small loom to make yarn potholders and thread yard through holes in picture cards. We communicated well with each other. My maiden name was Marttila and my parents, Ann and Eino, were very good friends of Marie and Harry, This past week , for some reason, I though of Coralie, and wondered how she was. I now know she has been reunited with her parents and I send my deepest condolences to the Terrio family.

    I knew and took care of cora an couple years ago at the Douglas house. She was very sweet and I loved her laugh. She would “talk” about her brother a lot. I will never forget her or her other housemates. I send my condolences to her family and the Douglas house.

    I took care of Cora the last seven years. I miss her laughter and her teasing nature! She loved her moo cows & I would often sew little outfits for them. She love loved fishing & boats, she looked forward to every holiday, especially Santa! She liked doing crafts with me, especially painting pictures. She would always say the pictures were for her brother-her most favorite person in the world. Every craft she made would go in a large gift bag, in her closet, for her brother & sister in law! I miss those hugs she’d give me! She made me look forward to going to work! My deepest sympathy goes out to her family! BIG HUGS!

    To Coralie’s Nieces and Nephews–

    None of you will know me but I wanted you to know that I was sorry to learn of Coralie’s passing. Her parents, Marie and Harry were my godparents and were friends of my parents. I knew Coralie as a young child and both I and later my children played with her when we visited Marie and Harry. Your grandparents had unlimited patience with her and always spoke gently to her. They cared for Coralie at home until Marie had to have surgery. Then Coralie was placed in a care facility. Marie told me that that was the hardest thing she ever had to do. May you find peace during all the sadness that you are going through.
    With love to each of you, I am Mary Carmella Charmoli Wovcha
