Corrine was of Cote First Nation. She grew up in Runnymede and attended school at Kamsack Victoria School, Kamsack Junior High and Yorkton Regional High School. Growing up, she loved looking after children in Runnymede and Togo. Later, she went to Richards Beauty School and took a course in hair dressing, and worked as a waitress at Bubbas, which she enjoyed. Corrine loved singing karaoke and being with friends.
