Visitation will be one hour prior to services at the church on Monday. Burial will be in Summit Cemetery in Morris.
Corrine Phyllis Carlson, daughter of C. Albert and Agda (Strid) Carlson, was born in Stephen, MN on December 24, 1929 – and she always wished her birthday didn’t fall on Christmas. She was baptized and confirmed in Salem Lutheran Church, a small country church near her childhood home. Corrine married James Krogh on September 21, 1951. The couple settled in Hancock in 1965 and moved to Morris in 1990 after Jim retired from managing the Hancock Co-op. Jim died on January 19, 2008.
Corrine was a wonderful homemaker. She kept an immaculate house and ensured the cookie jar was always full for Jim. She loved writing and receiving letters, reading, playing and winning card games, collecting roosters, the color yellow, coffee and ice cream.
Corrine died March 21, 2019 at West Wind Village in Morris. She was 89 years old.
