BANGOR - Lindsay Ann Corro
June 30th 1986 - December 15th 2012
"One can never see the moment coming when we are called from this world, but to be called too early is such heartbreak for those left behind...our hearts are heavy for our beautiful Lindsay this day...may your soul be free and happy."
Lindsay Ann Corro, 26, passed away unexpectedly of acute appendicitis, Saturday morning, Dec. 15, 2012, at a New York City hospital. She was born in Bangor, June 30, 1986, the daughter of Lee and Rosemary (Andrle) Corro.
Lindsay graduated from Bangor High School in 2004 and went on to receive her bachelor's degree in Apparel Product Design from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. She moved to New York City in 2009 to pursue her career in design, where she fell in love with the city and met her devoted boyfriend, Chris Lehman. Lindsay will be remembered for her exuberant laugh, wonderful sense of humor, and loving heart. She lit up a room with her radiant smile and brilliant blue eyes. Lindsay touched many lives and was a gift to those who knew her.
Baxter State Park was a favorite family destination; she enjoyed hiking Katahdin and the neighboring mountains. A passionate student of dance, she excelled at tap and jazz at The Top Hat II dance studio. The Andrle-family camp in Carrabassett was a favorite place for the whole family and Lindsay grew up skiing on the slopes of Sugarloaf Mountain. She continued to make time to head to the "Loaf" whenever she visited. She had an enduring love of the outdoors, spending many summer days at her family lakeside home on Phillip's Lake in Lucerne.
Lindsay is survived by her father and mother, Lee and Rosemary Corro, of Dedham; her brother, Zachary Corro, also of Dedham and his girlfriend, Nicole Murphy. She also leaves behind her boyfriend, Christopher Lehman of Long Beach, N.Y.; her grandparents, Carolee and Harvard Corro of Brewer, and Dr. Armand Andrle of Eddington and his dear companion Patricia Morelli. She will be missed by her uncle, Thomas Armand Andrle and his wife Marie, her aunts, Kerri Corro Lynch and her husband Joseph, Kathleen Andrle and her husband Paul Gamache, Ellen Andrle Breindel and her husband Tim, Jeanne Andrle Fuller and her husband Chuck, Louisa Andrle Hess, and Anne Marie Andrle; her cousins, Elise Chasse Schellhase, Samuel and Mary Fuller, Kaitlyn, Christina and Eric Andrle, Cameron and Caleb Lynch, Aurora and Andrea Hess. She also leaves her beloved cats Beemer and Little. We will keep her in our hearts as an inspiration every day.
The family would like to extend a special thank you to Cheryl Lehman and her daughter, Jen, for all their loving support.
