Jeannine "Jin" Monique (Berard) Corrieri, 85, passed away holding the hand of her husband, Frank R. Corrieri of 58 years, on July 20, 2020 at the family homestead on Railroad Street in Manville after a long battle with cancer. Born in Woonsocket, she was the last surviving family member of the Berard family from Grove Street. She was the daughter of the late Clovis and Juliette (Piche) Berard, and the sister of the late Madeline Boiteau, Teresa Murtagh, and Muriel, Pauline, Louise, Marcel, Normand and Richard Berard.
Jeannine was an Office Secretary for Dr. Sheridan’s office on Hamlet Avenue in Woonsocket until she married Frank in 1962. Shortly after, they started a family and Jeannine devoted her time at home to raise their three children. Jeannine had a sweet soul, who welcomed everyone into her home, listening to their stories and making sure they were well-fed and a part of the family. She loved cooking authentic French meals, baking Italian desserts that she learned from family and neighbors, and spending time with family and friends playing cards and dominoes around the kitchen table. After their retirement, Frank and Jin enjoyed traveling cross-country together to their home in Arizona.
Besides her husband, Jeannine is survived by two sons, Gregory R. Corrieri and his wife Donna of Hudson, NH; Jeffrey N. Corrieri and his wife Dawn of Manville; and her daughter Nadine M. Corrieri of Chesapeake, VA; grandchildren Nicole L. Corrieri of Greensboro, NC and Stephanie J. Corrieri of Putnam, CT, Great-Grandchildren, Godchildren, as well as many nieces & nephews.
