Corine F. (Bobbitt) Coles, 87 of Danbury, earned her heavenly wings on Tuesday October 11, 2016 at The Hospital for Special Care in New Britain, Connecticut.
Corine was born in Gretna, Virginia on August 1, 1929 the daughter of the late Clifton and Agnes (Kelley) Bobbitt.
Corine was raised in Chatham, Virginia and attended Chatham public schools. After residing in Washington, DC for a few years, she settled in Danbury, Connecticut in 1955. Corine selflessly dedicated her life to her family and their wellbeing. She worked as a laborer once her family was older. She retired from the Risdon Corporation of Danbury in 1993.
Corine was a joyful, caring and kind woman who loved her family and friends. She would never turn away anyone in need. Her personality was one that always attracted others to her. She would light up the room wherever she was.
As a child, she was known to be energetic and always the center of attention. Her vivaciousness earned her the nickname of "Frisky" which, over time, shortened to "Frisk" or "Fris". Even in her later life, she was still lovingly referred to as "Frisk" or "Fris" by some friends and family.
Corine had many interests over the years; one of her favorites being entertaining and cooking. Loving to entertain and socialize, Corine's warm personality always made it easy for her many friends and family to feel welcomed and special…making her home the regular gathering place. She also enjoyed playing poker with family and friends. Her "Poker Face" won her many a game. She was a winner…in so many ways.
Corine leaves behind to cherish her memory, her beloved children, Sandra L. (Edric) Bates, Carissa L. (Craig) Mayo and W. Thomas (Annie), Coles, Jr. the apples of her eye, her grandchildren Careema Mayo, Shalaya Mayo, Jordon McAlpine and Haley Coles, one sister; Louise Potter of Miami Florida, several nieces, including special niece Barbara J. Willie, nephews, cousins, honorary grandchildren, extended family and friends. Mrs. Coles was predeceased by one son, Wayne M. Coles, sisters, Elmer Stephens, Nannie J. Potter, Odell Miller, L. Arlene Coles, `Ruth Bittle, Willardine Logan, bothers, Haywood, Clyde and Charles Bobbitt.
