Georgine Corrigan a collectibles dealer from Hawaii Kai was on United a Airlines flight 93 from Newark, N.J., when it crashed in Pennsylvania.

Georgine moved from Toledo, Ohio to Honolulu in 1976. She first worked as a bank teller, later worked in the textiles industry, and eventually opened her own collectibles business with the help of her brother, Kevin Marisay.

In 1998, Corrigan moved in with her daughter's family. Mother and daughter shared an interest in art collecting, but it was being a devoted grandmother to her 6- and 4-year-old grandsons that gave Corrigan her greatest joy.

"When she was home, she was here to eat, sleep and play with the kids," Brough said.

Among the loved ones Georgine leaves behind are Laura Brough, her daughter; Bryan Buck, her son-in-law; and her grandsons Evan and Dylan.

Her final communication to her daughter was a message that she was on her way home.
