Corrine Gaye Ellison
Corrine G Ellison passed away August 16th 2019, a day before her 69th birthday. Corrine was born in 1950 to Earl John Thompson Jr. and Eloise Jack. She is one of eleven children born to Eloise (later Mrs Dosch.) She and her many siblings grew up in Albuquerque New Mexico running around the desert near the Sandia mountains. They would catch lizards, ride horses, and be the rambunctious "Thompson kids". In her 20's she became a mom of two sons. She traveled with her boys in tow, to Oregon, California and many other places. Travel was one of Corrine's favorite things to do, along with learning new dishes to cook and learning new facts. She was a vivacious, funny, and caring person. She helped a lot of her neighbors, friends, family and even enemies over the years. Corrine married Ronnie Frank Ellison in 1985, a year later having a daughter. She and Ron spent 33 years together until her passing. Predeceasing her are her parents, step-father John Dosch, siblings Melodee, James, Karen, Gary, Wayne, John Dosch and James Dosch. She is survived by her husband, sons Jericho and Steven Adams, daughter Katy Ellison, four grandchildren, her siblings Cyntella, Paula, Ronda, Alan, Eve, JoAnn, Debbie, Rick, Joe, Dennis, and many nieces and nephews.

There will be no services. She would appreciate everyone celebrating her life in their own way, no tears just laughter.

I wish we had been closer, both in distance and relationship. I loved our talks on the phone and your crazy laugh. God Speed, Corrine, I'm sure the welcome home you received from departed family members was as joyful as your passing from this mortal existence was sorrowful for those of us left behind. May God bless you, Katy as you continue your earthly journey without your mom, friend and cohort.
