Georgine Rose Corrigan, 55


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 infant daughter 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.
