Corinne Marie (Travers) Brooke, 53 of Ashland, MA died peacefully surrounded by her family on Saturday, September 19th after a long and courageous battle with cancer. Those who knew Corinne will tell you that she was the strongest person they’ve ever met and a true warrior, she “fought like a girl”. She was fearless, beautiful, funny and genuine. Despite her cancer struggles she was able to achieve her lifelong dream of being a Mom when she and Jeff found the love of their lives in their son Giovanni.
Born in Franklin on April 20, 1967 she was the daughter of Raymond and Shirley (MacEachern) Travers. She was a 1985 graduate of Tri-County High School, and a graduate of Rob Roy Academy. She had worked as a stylist at Silver Shears and as a loan processor at KeyHome Mortgage. More recently, she was a homemaker raising her son Giovanni.

She was the beloved Aunt of nieces Brittanie, Olivia, Alexandra, Nina; grandniece Mia; and nephews Nate and Mikey.
Friends and Family were everything for Corinne. She enjoyed cooking gourmet meals for all, and always made extra for all to bring home. She was most home on the beach with Jeff, Giovanni and a good book. She loved to be at Cape Cod, Rhode Island or her favorite spot in Aruba. Anyone who knew Corinne, wouldn’t find it difficult to believe that she is on a beach right now.
