Tanner and Publishers Press in Salt Lake City and Borland International in Scotts Valley, California, where she traveled the nation contracting for printing services. Corinne developed many friends in her professional career.

She had two children with Michael: Jennifer Rinn Warner, Maricopa, Arizona; and Mindy Lee Anderson (Chad), West Jordan, Utah. She is survived by her two daughters and her siblings: Ray Garbett (Tess), Prescott, Arizona; Larry Garbett (Pam), Athens, Alabama; Lee Garbett (Michelle), Stansbury Park, Utah; DeLon Garbett (Carolyn), Yachats, Oregon; and Dwain J.

In April of 1992 Corinne suffered a brain injury that changed her life. Her brother Larry and sister-in-law Pam have overseen her care since that time. Although the injury simplified her life, she remained a positive person and developed many friendships with church members and fellow assisted living residents. Her resilience was an example to all who knew her. She loved her simple life and constantly expressed her love and appreciation to all who knew her.
Corinne was an active member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and loved her ministering sisters and they loved her. Corinne’s family would like to thank the many ministering sisters (San Jose, California; Tucson, Arizona, and Madison, Alabama) who went above, and beyond which included taking Corinne to church and to the temple.
Corinne’s family is also grateful for the excellent care provided by Madison Hospital, Madison, Alabama. The doctors and nurses were very attentive to Corinne’s needs and went above and beyond for Corinne and her family. One of the nurses even sang “I Am a Child of God” for Corinne during the time she was most ill to provide her comfort.
A graveside service will be held for Corinne on Monday, Dec. 7, 2020, at 1 a.m., at the Tooele City Cemetery, Tooele, Utah, where interment will take place. Social distancing and wearing masks requested. Services will be under the direction of Tate Mortuary.
