  Georgine Rose Corrigan
Antiques dealer, 55, Honolulu, Hawaii; Daughter, Laura Brough. She was returning home after an antiques-buying trip to New Jersey.

As a single mom in 1976 needing to support her infant daughter, Georgine Rose Corrigan turned to what she knew best: schmoozing and hard work.

She parlayed a brief client transaction that year while working as a bank teller in her native Ohio into a job with the Bank of Hawaii. Setting up home in a one-bedroom apartment in Honolulu with her then-6-year-old daughter, Corrigan hit the ground running.

Juggling the bank job with a second one as a paid babysitter at a Hilton hotel, she later managed beauty salons, designed logos for a textile firm, painted Hawaiian floral prints on Christmas ornaments and drew silhouettes. Her daughter, Laura Brough, recalls her mother working such long hours that on Sundays, while the exhausted Corrigan slept, Brough would walk herself to church.

Seven years ago, Corrigan entered the perfect marriage -- with antiques. It was natural for her; her parents had collected antiques and her brother, Robert, owned several cars from the early 1900s.

Smiling and making friends as she scoured markets and sales, she picked up pieces for her growing number of clients who collected European, Oriental and Hawaiian antiques. Corrigan sold her wares at shows in Hawaii and on the mainland.

She also bought and sold vintage jewelry and clothes, letters from the early 1900s and anything having to do with roses, because Rose was her middle name. For several years she owned her own antiques shop.

In 1998, Corrigan moved in with her daughter's family. Mother and daughter shared an interest in art collecting, but it was being a devoted grandmother to her 6- and 4-year-old grandsons that gave Corrigan her greatest joy.

"When she was home, she was here to eat, sleep and play with the kids," Brough said.

Her mother had a low pain threshold -- "She would cry at a paper cut," Brough said -- and she often told her daughter that she felt like she'd suffered numerous disappointments in life.

But, her mother would add while enduring those difficult times: "God is teaching me a lesson now. I don't know what it is, but I'm sure we'll see the light at the end of the tunnel."

Adam D. Jones

Happy Birthday, Adam. You are missed so much every minute of everyday! XOXO ~143~ You will forever be in my heart and on my mind. Love always, Tammy

Laurie Cobb

She was my 3rd and 5th grade teacher. Today I'm 32 and still think about her. She was the best teacher ever. From her hair children stories to her bubbly happiness and kindness she spread. I'll never forget her. She was the teacher who had lunch with the kids in her classroom so everyone had someone to be with. She made my school experience amazing. I will never forget her.. I love you Mrs. Cobb. Sincerely, Forever in my thoughts, Alyssa (Viau) Capone

Larry E Polley Jr

SPC Polley died almost two decades ago so I don't know if this message will be seen. In honor of Memorial Day, my agency hands out cards with names of those who have fallen. This year, 2023, I received the card for SPC Polley and was inspired to look up more on him. I am thankful for his service and sacrifice. My condolences to his family. He is not forgotten.

Paul C. Holter III

Miss you brother

Alex D Gonzalez

Love you and miss you always. Since you been gone it has been hard for everyone. I know you loved what you did, and I want to thank you for our freedom. If I can have you back home and safe living your life man everything would be different. No matter how much money they would offer me I would rather have you alive and home. Money comes and go so it's not worth losing you.

Christopher D Young

hello my name is Jesus Vega I would like to give my condolences to Christopher's family and friends, I served with him in Iraq and slept in the same quarters. I have many fond memories of him. I have never forgotten his sacrifice. I would like to share that the greatest memory I had of Chris is that he would speak highly of his mom and how much she meant to him. Chris was a strong minded person and looked out for other. He was kind and friendly the he made friends with everyone. Chris was truly a great man! I sincerely apologize for not sharing sooner. but would like to express that Chris's memory will never be forgotten! though he is not with us he will always be in spirit! If this message gets to Christopher's mother I she could know she raised a great man and for that I thank you.

James David Parker

I knew James David Parker as "Dave" when he lived in Solon Ohio. We met when I moved into town from out of state. He and his group of friends were a year or two older than me. Dave was a bright beacon of hope and joy to me. I was an unsure young man in a strange place. Dave introduced me to many people and ensured his friends always saved me a seat in the lunchroom. I have fond memories of him and his friends during that time. I doubt so many people would have been as wonderful toward me without Dave's incredible kindness. I've never forgotten his kindness. I hope to be able to pay it forward someday.
