Corinne was born November 21, 1919, the 10th child of Frank and Mamie (Perrone) Micheli in Chefly, Louisiana. Corinne’s parents were Sicilian immigrants and she grew up in a big Italian farming family. Most of her family moved to Michigan where she met and married Emanuel Graziano on November 13, 1937, where they helped their family on the fruit farm. She loved Italian and Country music. She was a great Italian cook and passed on those traditions to many family members. She made friends everywhere including at the Vineyard Apts. and The Willows. She loved to play cards with her special friend, Al Vasta and many family members. Corinne was a very loving person and will be missed deeply by all who knew her.

Corinne is survived by her two daughters, Anna Garlanger and Mamie Graziano; grandchildren, Suzanne (Dan) Moomey, Michael (Mariana) Hoffmann, Mark (Lisa) Garlanger and Carl Uzarski; great-grandchildren, Rachel (Fiancé, Jeff Ichesco) Buckner, Michelle Buckner (Manveer Hira), Ashlyn and Alex Garlanger and numerous nieces, nephews and cousins. She was preceded in death by her parents, husband, two sons-in-law, Rudolf Hoffmann and Paul Garlanger; seven sisters and five brothers.

Corinne’s family would like to thank the staff at The Willows and Hanson Hospice Center for all of their compassionate care.

Anna & Family,
Your Mother, Grandmother and Great Grandma will be sadly missed by all. She had a beautiful smile and wonderful personality. I’m so happy I had the opportunity to see her and spend time with her on her special 100th Birthday. I will always remember our fun times of playing Spite & Malice card games.
Anna, I am sorry I cannot be there for you like you were for me during the loss of my Mother in 2008, but I am there in thoughts & prayers.
