Obituary for Helen Marie Corey

Helen Corey, 92, passed away peacefully at Schneidmiller Hospice House of North Idaho on November 25, 2019 with family by her side. Helen Marie McNurlin was born on March 3, 1927 in Spirit Lake, Idaho, where she attended school. She met Grant Corey in 1948 and they married on January 7, 1949. Five years later they moved to Coeur d’Alene Idaho with their children.

Helen and Grant loved to travel, seeing much of the United States and Canada. They spent their free time hunting, fishing, camping, riding snowmobiles and motorcycles. They enjoyed an early retirement and loved spending time with their grandchildren. After retiring Helen and Grant bought a home in Yuma, Arizona, where they made many friends, enjoyed cocktail hours and taking their dune buggy out on the desert. Helen loved to golf and participated in local leagues for many years. She was a member of the Rambling Rovers and jumped at every opportunity to take in a musical or play. She was a devoted Mariner’s baseball fan, loved to walk with her neighbors, and above all else, she loved spending time with her family.

Helen is survived by her daughter Linda (John) Duran of Hayden; son, Terry (Gay) Corey of Dalton Gardens; granddaughter, Bridget (Gaite) Kennedy of Rathdrum; grandson, Kris Corey of Coeur d’Alene; granddaughter, Alysha Duran of Seattle, WA; and three great grandchildren: Aliya Moore, Dallas Kennedy and Aiden Kennedy. Helen is preceded in death by her husband, Grant; sister, Bea Nagel; brothers, Jim McNurlin and Harley McNurlin.
