Loved by many nieces and nephews in Holland, Brantford and St. Marys and many dear friends. Corry was born in Holland to Reyer and Maartje Van Triest. She became a Registered Nurse and moved to St. Mary's, Ontario to live with her sister Joan. She worked at the Stratford General Hospital where she met her dear friend Donna Hurst. Donna set off to nurse in Collingwood and Corry went to nurse in Huntsville. While up north, Corry learned to ski and later tried to teach Ralph and that began their love story. She relocated to the Brantford area where she and Ralph married and raised their two boys. She worked in the Operating Room at the Willett Hospital in Paris until it closed and then moved into the Urgent Care Unit until she retired. She enjoyed traveling to Hawaii, Alaska and the Caribbean. Loved to host family and friends in her home. And absolutely LOVED her grandchildren.
