In Memory of Corrine Weatherly
July 14, 1943 to June 24, 2023

Corrine was a lifelong seamstress, designing and making countless formals, pageant and wedding gowns, theatrical and dance costumes. She said, "I had a needle in my hand by the time I was 2. By the age of 7, I could sew by myself".

Corrine became active in 4-H as a child and participated in many aspects of the fair. Over her lifetime involvement, Corrine was a national award winner with livestock and showmanship as a youth. After leaving Nebraska and relocating to the Clinton, Arkansas area in 1976, Corrine became active with Van Buren County Fair. She served on the board from 1979-2023 and as Fair Manager 1984-2023. She was inducted into the Arkansas State Fair Hall of Fame in 2014. In 2017, Corrine was crowned Sr. Mrs. Arkansas State Fair Queen. She said, "I love the fair industry. It's my life and what I enjoy most".

Corrine was very active throughout the community and touched many lives. In 2021, Corrine was honored with "Van Buren County Woman of the Year".
