With the Deepest Sympathy to One of Our Own:  Mark and DeAnn Mitchener

The Officers, Directors, and Members of the Oklahoma Jewelers Association extend their heartfelt condolences to Mark and DeAnn Mitchener (Mitchener & Farrand Fine Jewelry, OKC) in the passing or their daughter Corinne Dinges on August  17, 2021, after a  three year heroic fight with Ewing’s Sarcoma and Leukemia. 

From her obituary:  Corinne was an amazing young woman having graduated from the University of Oklahoma’s College of Medicine in 2018, and then in July of that same year taking a position with the Greenville, S.C. Health Systems as an OB/GYN resident.  


Corinne spent a few short months in Greenville before being diagnosed in November.  While there she made deep meaningful relationships that had a lasting impact on the community she served.  Corinne’s infectious smile lit up every room she entered, and she had that unique ability to create lifelong relationships within minutes of meeting someone.   

Donations can be made in Corinne’s memory to Houston Haven, a non - profit ministry dedicated to providing affordable housing to out-of-town cancer patients and families undergoing treatment at MD Anderson Cancer Center, as follows:
Houston Haven:  PO Box 102; Bellaire, TX.  77402 or


We send our mutual love and respects to Mark and DeAnn during this time and pray God’s blessing upon them.
