Cory! You are so loved. I treasure knowing you as my best friends mom! Always sweet and kind. I have fond memories of sleep overs, scrapbooking aka you talking to us;) and bday parties with all the babies. Glad you are at peace with Lenny. Know that Jenny has a great support system! We love her like a sister.
To Cousin Corrine- I have such wonderful memories of you when we were kids growing up. You were the darling younger cousin who kept up with the older cousins for fun and frivolity. Aunt Barbara and Uncle Frank had lively Dekker Family parties at their home and being with you, and Frankie and Jerry when they were around, made them special. I remember camping trips and good times at Pinecrest as well.
We lost touch for a time and reunited for the Dekker Cousin Reunion at Pinecrest last summer. I’m so happy that Jenny brought you to Pinecrest.
Love and hugs to Jenny, Adam and their families.
Through love, through friendship, a heart lives more than one life. Corrine, Cory, my only sister for 60 years and Christian’s Auntie Coco
We have been blessed for being loved by Corrine and a part of her extended families.
May God give us strength when ours is gone., may His grace and mercy carry us on as we celebrate a life well lived and loving spirit that will be missed until we are together once again.

Dear Cousin Corrine:
It was so great to see you on August 27-30, 2022 at the Dekker Cousin Reunion at Pinecrest Lake. You were so happy to be at the Reunion. Myself and my fellow Cousins are so glad you were able to make the trip from Texas and we are very thankful to Jenny for accompanying you on the journey from Texas. Along with our fellow Cousins we spent our time in Pinecrest telling Dekker stories about our Parents, Aunts and Uncles; discussing the Dekker Legacy; and enjoying the beautiful Pinecrest venue. You were fun to be with and a joy to be around. Also, I have such fond memories of parties at your parents home in Millbrae; attending your Wedding and meeting Lenny; and more recently, the early 2000’s, picking you up several times at the Sacramento Airport for the half hour trip to Elk Grove when you would visit your parents and I would get to spend time with Uncle Frank and Aunt Barbara. Other memories over the years include phone conversations with you for the purpose of just saying hello and catching up, phone calls which would last an hour to an hour and a half.
I will miss you Corrine as will your fellow Cousins. I send my deepest condolences to Jenny and Alan, your brother Frank, and to all your family.
Love. Your Cousin, Tom Dekker
