Corrina M. Hagen, age 87, of Le Sueur, formerly of Winsted, died Thursday, Nov. 7, 2019, at Abbott Northwestern Hospital in Minneapolis.
A Memorial Mass will take place Tuesday, Nov. 19 at 11 a.m. at Holy Trinity Catholic Church in Winsted, with Fr. Mike officiating. There will be visitation at the church Tuesday from 9:30 to 11 a.m. Interment will be in the church cemetery.
Corrina was born May 11, 1932, in Hollywood Township, Carver County, to Peter and Louisa (Quast) Kieser.
She grew up and lived in Winsted all her life; it was only recently that she moved to Le Sueur to be nearer to her granddaughters.
Corrina worked for Green Giant Canning Co. in Winsted; and as the store manager for Dueber’s Department Store in Winsted for many years. She also worked as a cook for Holy Trinity Catholic School.
A member of the VFW Auxiliary in Winsted, Corrina was heavily involved in her community and church.
While her granddaughters were growing up, she enjoyed attending all of their school activities. She even became their personal seamstress at times.
Corrina enjoyed being with her family and watching her grandchildren and great-grandchildren grow up. Her favorite TV show was Dr. Phil, and would make sure to let you know if she was missing it due to her helping you out.
Corrina was someone you could count on. She was always there and always willing to help whoever needed it. She was very independent, and was able to live and drive independently right up to the end.
Corrina was definitely one-of-a-kind, and she will be missed by all who knew her.
She is survived by her son, Roy Hagen of Winsted; grandchildren, Shawn (Nila) Hagen of Ramona, CA, Heidi (Andy) Forcier, and Brandi (Dan) Falkman, all of Le Sueur; great-grandchildren Madison Hagen, Mercedes, Hunter and Jackson Forcier, and Brooklynn and Taylor Holmers; former daughter-in-law, Shelley Bergman; bonus granddaughter, Baillie (significant other, Cole Giles) Bergman; and bonus great-grandchildren, Mikayla, Davin, Elli, and Camryn Falkman.
Corrina was preceded in death by her parents; brothers Alfred, Jerome, and Reuben Kieser; and sisters Irene Helmbrecht, and Marietta Mallak.
