It is with great sadness that we announce the sudden passing of our beloved daughter and sister, Corinne Elizabeth Fay, at the age of 34 years, on May 18, 2018 in Calgary.

Corinne graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Economics from the University of Calgary. In the past, she worked for UFA and Safeway. More recently she completed her Community Service Worker Diploma and volunteered at The Women’s Centre. Corinne was a kind person always trying to help those in need.

Corinne will be sadly missed and lovingly remembered by her parents, John and Elley Fay; her sister and brother-in-law Laura and Jeff; brother and sister-in-law Charles and Kristyn; her nieces and nephew, Sarah, Amy, Henry, Isabella, Heidi, and Anna; as well as many aunts, uncles, and cousins. She was predeceased by her grandparents, Eric and Jean Fay, and Ernest and Theda Berry.

A Celebration of Life will be held at McINNIS & HOLLOWAY (Fish Creek, 14441 Bannister Road S.E., Calgary, AB) on Monday, May 28, 2018 at 2:00 p.m. Condolences may be forwarded through www.mcinnisandholloway.com.

    I am so sorry to hear about Corrine’s sudden passing. Corrine would relieve me at the Women’s Centre on Tuesdays. I volunteer during the morning shift as Corrine worked the early afternoon shift. I knew Corrine as long as she volunteered as a Peer Support Volunteer. She was beautiful inside & out. May the Lord God give you strength & comfort you in this time of loss.

    To the Fay Family, Please know that Corinne will truly be missed at the Women’s Centre! We were colleagues on the Social Issues Committee and I always was impressed by her many talents. She was full of good ideas, a creative thinker who attempted to view issues from a broad perspective. She cared deeply about the many issues and challenges facing women and girls. When working in direct peer support, she offered informed, caring and compassionate service and was often in the role of training other volunteers as they learned “the ropes”.
    Corinne also wore great hats with real flair! She had a wonderful, often quirky, fashion sense and was great fun to work with. She was certainly a “Bright Star” at the Centre!
    My sincere condolences and empathy to you all at this very difficult time.

    I was so sad to hear this news. Corinne was a friend from UFA and we worked together on store reopenings and various events. When we worked together we would share a ton of giggles and laughs while getting the job done. Corinne always led the initiative to thank our office baker Jim K. with gifts of appreciation. She was so thoughtful and kind to everyone. You left this world far too early and your beautiful soul will be missed.
