My Story

Welcome friends and family of Corinne.
This Sunday, June 24th, Corinne was struck by a car while on a bike ride. She left us on Tuesday afternoon.
Please use this site to share your thoughts and feelings. We invite you to share stories and help us to remember Corinne's sparkling life.

Sunday, June 24th Corinne was struck by a car while stopping at a red light at Olympic and Newell Ave in Walnut Creek, CA. She was on her way home from a bike ride up Mt. Diablo on a clear, sunny day with her good friend, Christian Claussen. They were stopped at a red light when a car in the cross traffic lost control and struck them. Corinne sustained major head trauma and is not expected to recover. Christian suffered a concussion and numerous abrasions but he is ok.
Corinne was taken off of life support the evening of Tuesday, June 26th. Corinne donated her organs to those in need so that they could have the gift of life.
We wish to use this site to celebrate the life of our wonderful friend. She exuded energy and enthusiasm whether she was discussing ancient roman graffiti or tackling a mountain on her bike. She is something different to all of us: sister, daughter, teammate, colleague or simply friend. Help us to get to know all of these sides of her.
Corinne's classics department has put together a story of her academic life. Please visit http://classics.berkeley.edu/news/articles/story.php?id=17 to read it.
