Corrine Gladys Devick was born on October 1, 1931 the daughter of Arne and Gina (Peterson) Devick of Donnelly, MN. Corrine graduated from Donnelly High School. In 1952 Corrine met Mr. Eldred Jackson. The two were united in marriage on December 1, 1952, this union was blessed with one son, Darwin Jackson.
Corrine was a caretaker and always thinking of others. She was known for her tremendous ribs and home-made spaghetti sauce. She spent countless hours baking pies with her granddaughters, teaching them the art of making home made crusts. She had a competitive nature, no matter how much she loved her family, she liked to win when playing cards. Corrine was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis as a young adult and lived at the Minnewaska Lutheran Home for nineteen years. Although this inhibited her ability to move around, she still managed to have fun with her grandkids, often found racing her wheelchair with them down the hallways at the home. She was generous with her talents, often sharing tokens and treats with others. Her thoughtfulness and generosity will be dearly missed.
Corrine passed away peacefully on Saturday, November 2, 2019 at the Minnewaska Lutheran Home in Starbuck. She was 88 years old.
