Corinne Essig (Crane) Catto, formerly of Wilton, died at her home in Basking Ridge, N.J., on July 19, 2017. Her personal warmth, sense of style, and unflinching commitment to family will be dearly missed.

“Connie” as she was known, raised her family in Wilton and it is where she enjoyed many happy years, including being the Little League correspondent for The Bulletin in the mid and late 1960s.
