Mrs. Rose Marie (Casab) Korrie, age 80, of Utica passed away after a brief illness on Monday October 3, 2016 at Upstate Medical University, Syracuse, NY with her loving family by her side.
She was born in Utica on September 15, 1936 a daughter of the late Albert and Margaret (Astour) Casab. She was educated in local schools having graduated from UFA. On July 4, 1961 she was united in marriage with John Korrie at St. Basil's Melkite Catholic Church, a blessed union of 55 years.

She was a loving, kind, and compassionate woman who will be greatly missed by her beloved family, but never forgotten.
