Georgine Rose Corrigan was a prominent antiques and collectibles dealer who had been on an East Coast buying trip for a collectibles show in November.

Fellow collectibles dealer Eileen Wong said, "She was someone who was like a mother figure to a lot of people. She always had good advice and was always optimistic."

Georgine moved from Toledo, Ohio to Honolulu in 1976. She first worked as a bank teller, later worked in the textiles industry, and eventually opened her own collectibles business with the help of her brother, Kevin Marisay.

Among the loved ones Georgine leaves behind are Laura Brough, her daughter; Bryan Buck, her son-in-law; and her grandsons Evan and Dylan.

A memorial fund has been set up in Corrigan's name to assist the family. Donations and correspondence can be sent to Laura Brough, P.O. Box 25643, Honolulu, HI 96825.
