January 7, 1931 - March 4, 2018
It is with great sadness that the family of Corinne Wilkinson Scott announces her passing on March 4, 2018. Corinne was born January 7, 1931 to Rita Motley Wilkinson and Hilbert Augustus Wilkinson. She was raised in Brooklyn, NY with her brothers Hilbert Jr. and Eugene. She attended Public School #3 and Prospect Heights (formerly Girls Commercial) High School. After graduation, she worked as a keypunch operator for Metropolitan Life Insurance Company. After marriage and motherhood, she worked as a secretary at the Brooklyn Army Base. Three years later, she left to have her second child. She then worked for the Internal Revenue Service, where she stayed for nine years. In 1968, Corinne was offered a position with the Human Resources Administration of the City of New York. There, she rose through the ranks and became the Associate Staff Analyst and functioned as the Employee Relations Officer for the Agency of Child Development. After 23 years, she retired and soon thereafter moved to Palm Coast, Florida. Corinne was a loving mother to her sons, Neal and Garyn (deceased) Scott, and grandmother to Risa, Donovan, and Daryn (deceased) Scott. She loved her family and stayed in contact with her many aunts, uncles, in-laws, and cousins. She cherished her nieces and nephews. Anyone who knew Corinne was impressed with her sense of humor and her ability to make friends. She was a great entertainer and cook. She was known for her family get togethers, that occurred almost weekly at her apartment in Brooklyn. No one ever left her home hungry. She had a large network of friends, most of whom she stayed in touch with for many decades. She loved to travel and took many trips to visit family in California and Barbados. Most of all, she took pride in being a loving mother, grandmother, aunt, and friend. A memorial service will be held at St. Thomas Episcopal Church, Palm Coast, FL on Thursday, March 15, 2018 at 10:00am. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the church. Heritage Funeral and Cremation Service is in charge of arrangements.
