Corinne Newman served as Thurston County Juvenile Court Administrator from 1985 to 2003. She unexpectedly passed away in 2009. Corinne devoted her 30-year career to working with youth and their families in the court system. She believed in the potential of each child and the need to work with the whole family to reach that potential.

Among Ms. Newman's dreams, and retirement-projects-cut-short, was creating wall-size quilts to welcome courthouse visitors. Her friends and family have completed three quilts to dedicate to the Court in her memory. The quilts will be displayed in the hallways at Family and Juvenile Court.
