Corrine Frances Allen Beasley passed away peacefully in her home surrounded by loved ones on March 31, 2019 at the age of 90. Corrine was born on January 24, 1929 in Birmingport,
Alabama to Charlie L. and Pernie Allen. On November 24, 1949 she married the love of her life, Charles Lindy Beasley, Sr. (“Lindy”), and together they raised two children - Charles and Gail.
Corrine and Lindy established an invaluable foundation of faith, family, and love upon which their children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren would rely for generations to come. Corrine was an adoring wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, daughter, sister, aunt, and friend who devoted her life to supporting, nurturing, and loving those around her. She was a natural born caregiver who selflessly and tirelessly cared for those close to her in their times of need. From devoting her every waking hour to caring for her husband as he wound down his life on this earth, to loving, teaching, and nurturing her grandchildren and great-grandchildren as her own as they began theirs, Corrine was known for sacrificing herself for those she loved and doing for others when they could not do for themselves. Through it all she maintained not only a fierce devotion to her family and an unwavering commitment to her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, but also an uncanny ability to find humor in every situation. Corrine’s sense of humor and quick wit brought joy to all who knew her and a welcomed levity to even the heaviest of circumstances. To say that she will be missed is an understatement, but her memory will live forever in the hearts of all who knew her. While as her family and friends we mourn the loss of a precious soul and irreplaceable matriarch, we know that Corrine rejoiced as she was ushered through the gates of Heaven and finally reunited with the love of her life, her beloved
husband. With great comfort we rely on the fact that Corrine’s last breath on earth was followed by her first breath in Heaven, which was then quickly followed by a long-awaited embrace from her other half. Corrine was preceded in death by her husband, Charles Lindy Beasley, Sr., her mother and father, Charlie L. and Pernie Allen, her sisters, Fay Allen Rabbets, Arlene Allen Smith, Dorothy Allen Stensloff, and her brother, Charlie L. Allen, Jr. (“Boots”). She is survived by her son, Charles Beasley, Jr. (Cathy), her daughter, Gail Pritchett (Mark), her grandchildren, Christie Brown (Ross), Carolyn Perkins (Jason), Paige Yarbrough (Matt), and Mallory Nix (Alex), and her great-grandsons, Jase Perkins, Jett Perkins, Jude Perkins, Jaxson Yarbrough, and John-Tyler Nix and brother Charlie Richard Allen (“Ricky”). A celebration of her life will be held on Wednesday, April 3, 2019 at 1:00 pm at the chapel of Crestview Memorial Funeral Home. Visitation will be on Wednesday from 11:00 am until 1:00 pm at the funeral home. Burial will be at Crestview Memorial Gardens.
