Corinne Weichert Imhoff passed away peacefully in the early morning of July 7, 2023. She was 92.
Corinne was born in Queens, New York, the daughter of Oscar and Elois Weichert on July 27, 1930. She was predeceased by her husband Edward F Imhoff, who died August 21,2021. The Imhoff’s were happily married for 65 years. Ed was a police detective for the county of Nassau, NY. for 25 years.
Ed & Corinne lived in the same development in Queens where all the homes looked alike. Their homes were four blocks from one another & they went to the same high school but never met each other until they graduated from high school. They met shortly thereafter, and the rest was a good long loving life together
While Ed was fighting crime, Corine would take a daily subway into New York City where she was secretary for a social services organization.
After Ed retired they moved to Florida where they lived for a year, but the heat got to them. They found a wonderful community in Brevard with new friends, things to do, and cool weather in the mountains.
After moving to Brevard Corinne volunteered at the Sharing House for 20 years. She just loved helping people. Her handwriting was so impeccably beautiful that she was constantly asked to address special mailings for Sharing House. Corinne was the kind of person whom you wanted to have as a friend. She was gracious, generous, and loved life.
When Corinne was a little girl in Queens, during the war she remembered that her father, who worked for the government, was the only man on the street who had a car. She would say that he must have been very important, probably working “top secret” work for the government.
She also remembered that, as a little girl, she had chickens. She always smiled at the memory of herself carrying a big white chicken down the street to a neighbors house.
Corinne had one sister, Joan, who lived in Florida who also predeceased her several years ago. She has no other relatives.
Corinne spent her final months at Tore’s Home in Brevard where she was given extra special care. A big thank you to a Ramona, a supervisor at Tore’s, for the loving care & attention she gave Corrine in her final months.
Private burial services will take place in the future for this lovely woman.
