Hometown: Honolulu, Hawaii
Occupation: Antiques and collectables dealer
Reason for travel: Returning from visit with brother and buying trip for business
Georgine Rose Corrigan, a gregarious, optimistic Ohio native, had lived in Hawaii since 1976 when she and her infant daughter re-located and made the island their home. Corrigan 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. Family and friends remember her as a doting grandmother who was “crazy about roses,” a nod to her middle name. On September 11, Corrigan was on her way home from an east coast buying trip and a visit with her brother in New Jersey. She was survived by a daughter.
