It is with great sadness and love that we, the family, announce the peaceful passing of Corinne Sampson on February 15th, 2017 at the Victoria General Hospital surrounded by her loving family. Born in Sydney on September 4, 1949, Corinne was the daughter of the late Frank and Hope (Pace) Shallo.
Corinne started her career as a CNA at St. Rita’s Hospital, and in her later years worked with Mental Health Services at the Cape Breton District Health Authority where she recently retired. Corinne devoted her life to her family and touched many lives with her unconditional love and compassion. Her incredible strength and perseverance will be remembered and treasured by all who loved her. She was a devoted Christian and found much joy and peace surrounded by her church family at the Cape Breton Fellowship Church.
Corinne is survived by her daughters, Dana Sampson, Denise (Joe) Wild; her son, Darryl (Lynette) Sampson, Angela (Michael) Rogez and her grandchildren, Zoe, Maya, Amarah, Asher & Arlowe. Corinne is survived by her siblings, Ann (Donnie) Bond, Carol (Melvin) Chiasson, David (Judy) Shallo as well as her nieces and nephews.
