Georgine Rose Corrigan
While working as a bank teller in her native Ohio in 1976, Georgine Rose Corrigan had a chance meeting that led to a job offer in Hawaii. Corrigan and her infantdaughter re-located and made the island their home. Georgine worked at dozens of different jobs, many relying on her artistic talent. She became a well-known antiques and collectables dealer, designed jewelry and developed a line of Christmas ornaments decorated with tropical flowers. Friends said she was "crazy about roses," a nod to her middle name. On September 11, Corrigan, 55, was on her way home from an East Coast buying trip and a visit with her brother in New Jersey.
