Corrine Lucille Tandy was born February 10, 1930 near Keswick, Iowa, the daughter of Lewis and Wanda (Fisch) Morse. She grew up and lived in Millersburg for many years before moving to her much-loved farm in Williamsburg. She graduated from Millersburg High School, completed her under-graduate work at the University of Northern Iowa and received her Master's Degree from the University of Iowa. Corrine was united in marriage to John Roger Tandy on April 8, 1950 at the Millersburg United Methodist Church. She was a passionate and devoted educator. She was a teacher for 18 years and a Principal/Teacher for 28 years in the Millersburg Community School District, retiring in 1997. Corrine was a life-long member of the Millersburg United Methodist Church where she served as a Sunday school teacher, board member and Lay Speaker. She was also a member of ISEA, NEA, Elementary Principal's Groups, Delta Kappa Gamma and the Rebekahs. Corrine worked diligently as a volunteer for many civic committees and organizations. She was a dedicated advocate and volunteer for the Heritage Area Agency on Aging. Her most cherished roles were those of a supportive, loving mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, neighbor and friend. Corrine passed away on Saturday, November 23, 2019 at the Highland Ridge Care Center in Williamsburg at the age of 89. Corrine requested her body be donated to Parkinson's Research at the University of Iowa.

Your mother was one of my favorite teachers. Her dedication and commitment to teaching. Her wonderful sense of empathy for her students. Now that I'm older, I appreciate her even more. So sorry for your loss.

Dear Dawn, Tim and I will always treasure the visits with your mom and dad, here in Tucson. Their memories that they were so willing to share and the great card games with all the cousins. We are so sorry for your loss. All our sympathy, Christel and Tim

Eunice, Dawn & family:
We're thinking about all of you! She certainly was a gem of a lady! With one stern look we'd be put in our place and she was a force to be reckoned with. Hugs to you all💔

Laura Welsh Engler on Nov 25, 2019

Dear Dawn, I have fond memories of your mom and my aunt, Mary Welsh, meandering through downtown Des Moines every August for several years at the Iowa Education Administrators Convention. Often, they got me a pass to hear the main speaker, who was always top notch and inspiring. One time is was Barbara Walters, at the height of her career. Other times, I would get to join them at dinner theatre. They were a hoot! They would laugh together, problem solve together, and share a room . When Mary died, Corrine contacted us to make sure that we knew that Mary should be buried wearing her DKG pin! It was a privilege to be around her. If Mary were living today, I am certain that she would want me to extend sympathy on her behalf. Sincerely, Laura Welsh Engler

Dawn, I'm so sorry to hear about your Mom. She was a wonderful person! I still remember how excited I would be as a kid coming to Iowa in the Summer and staying a few days with you guys at the farm. Your folks had a way of making anybody feel welcome. Keith Back

Kay Agnew on Nov 23, 2019

Dawn, so sorry to hear about your mother! She was a gem. I was lucky, as were many of siblings, to have her as a teacher. She was wonderful educator and beautiful lady. May she rest in peace. Kay Agnew
