Nina Marie Corcione, of Somers, NY, died at home on Monday, February 10, 2020, after a long battle with Multiple Myeloma. She was 70 years old.
Born on June 26, 1949, in Queens, NY, she was the daughter of the late Frederick and Catherine (Lunghi) Arena.
Nina worked for CUNY for most of her career, starting at Student Activities at Queens College. Her last position was as the office manager of the Law Library at CUNY Law School at Queens College where she worked for 18 years before retiring.
Following her retirement in 2005, she moved to Somers, NY. She was an active parishioner of Sacred Heart Church, Southbury, CT.
Music always played a large part in Nina's life, from performing in her high school production of
Brigadoonto singing at local venues in her hometown to Sundays spent with her beloved choir families, first at St. Ann's in Flushing, NY and then at Sacred Heart.
Nina loved to shop. The cashiers at Kmart knew her by name. If it was an Olympic sport, she would have won a gold medal in haggling and negotiating. Nina always had a coupon and she always scored the best deals. Watch out if she asked to speak with a manager!
Nina always said if women could have played in the major leagues, she would have had a spot. She settled for coaching softball for the Queensboro Hill Athletic Association, touching the lives of many girls who loved the game as much as she did. She was a lifelong
Mets fan and was a season ticket holder at Shea Stadium for years. She bled blue and orange and held a special place in her heart for Mr. Met. It was fate that she passed away on the first day of spring training in Port St. Lucie. Don't be surprised if the Mets win the World Series this year as they have a superfan cheering them on from heaven.
She started out every phone call with, "What's doing?" We will miss her daily General Hospital
updates. She never understood why no one ever stayed in jail in Port Charles and she often questioned how even the police could not figure out who the killer was. She was so excited when Ziva came back to
NCIS, and she couldn't wait to catch the new episode of Last Man Standing.
Nina is survived by her daughter, Jennifer Swartvagher (Pierre) of Wappingers Falls. She also leaves behind eight grandchildren: Emilie, Abigail, Katie, Evan, Alice, Lucie, Josephine, and Linus. She was predeceased by her grandsons, Bennett and Elijah.
Nina shared a special relationship with her cousin, Kimberly Santerre and her friend, Jennifer Enger. She will be greatly missed by all who knew her.
Nina enjoyed a medium hot latte at Dunkin, but she always needed an extra shot of milk. Order a coffee in her honor and make sure you have your coupon.
A Mass of Christian burial will be celebrated on Wednesday, February 12, 2020, at 10 am at Sacred Heart Church, 910 Main Street South, Southbury, CT. Visitation will be held prior to the mass at the church beginning at 9 am. Interment will follow at Mt. St.
Mary’s Cemetery, Queens, NY.

In lieu of flowers donations in memory of Nina may be made to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, 3 Landmark Square, Suite 330, Stamford, CT, 06901 or
