Corinne E. (Kellington) Faulkner, a resident of Everett, passed away peacefully at Mass General Hospital on Monday, July 30, 2018, at age 83.

Corinne was born in Stoneham, one of four children of the late John C. Kellington and Elizabeth (Stanley) Kellington. She was raised in Malden where she graduated from Malden High School, Class of 1954. She worked as a cook at Mass General Hospital and as a Dietician's Assistant at Children's Hospital for 24 years.

Corinne was an active member of the Melrose Church of the Nazarene, and was a member of the Ladies Bible Study. She was also a member of the Arthritis Support Group at the Chelsea Senior Center. In her younger days, she was a member of the Glendale Baptist Church where she taught Sunday School, and served on the Missionary Committee for 15 years. In her free time, Corinne authored a book of poetry entitled "Come Walk with Me My Friend."

Intelligent and strong willed, Corinne faced every challenge in her life with determination, and her very own "uncommon sense." She was self-reliant, but always had a smile and a kind word for everyone she encountered. Her loss will be felt greatly by her dear friend Judith Taylor, and her church family and friends.
Corinne was the dear sister of Anne Griffin of E. Boston, and the late Lillian Howes, and the late John C. Kellington, Jr. She is also survived by several nieces and nephews.

Relatives and friends will gather in honor and remembrance of Corinne's life during visiting hours at the Melrose Church of the Nazarene, 2 Short St., Melrose on Monday, August 6 from 9:30-11am, followed by her Funeral Service celebrated at 11am. Interment in Puritan Lawn Memorial Park, Peabody. Gifts in memory of Corinne may be made to the Melrose Church of the Nazarene, 2 Short St., Melrose MA 02176.
