Unlike her siblings, Corrie left Dover and Kent to live back in the Yarrow family's native Cambridgeshire.

She set up home in the city of Cambridge, and spent some time there working as a Civil Servant.

Corrie devoted a lot of her time and energy to her church - The Church of the Good Shepherd in Cambridge. She was one of the first worshippers there, and her fundraising helped to establish the church which survives and remembers her well today. Members of the concregation remember her as being practical, friendly, generous, musical and she sang in the choir (a true Yarrow trait!).

Corrie never married, nor had any children.
