Corinna Pope was born on March 10, 1992, in Fort Worth to Elliot G. Pope and Tammie Lee (Watson) Pope.  She grew up in Lampasas, TX, and went to Lampasas High School where she was loved by her friends.  The first 15 years of Corinna’s life were full of friends and fun!  She was a straight-A student, and popular at school.  She loved to go skating and hang out with her friends while being a bit of a rebel and she was a complete cat lover.  She was a diva in her own way, she loved glitter, and raiding the closet to dress up.  She also enjoyed singing, and making videos and was the life of the party. 

At 15, Corinna was diagnosed with schizophrenia, started hearing voices, and got lost in hallucinations.  Through it all she still shined with love for her family and her son, Dante who she cherished with all of her heart.  Corinna lived in a magical world with awake nightmares and fairytales.  She was a unique and beautiful soul full of life and love.

Pope; her son, Dante Alen Chadwick; sister, Casey Lee Chapman and husband Daniel; sister, Allison May Pope; brother, Elliot John Philip Pope; grandparents, John E. Watson, Philip Pope, and Anita Pope; nieces, Delilah Whitaker, and Paisley Whitaker; nephews, Dakoda Whitaker, Levi Whitaker, Micah Watson, Rory Chapman, Aiden Chapman, and Corbin Chapman.
