She was born Oct. 30, 1910, in Oran, Mo., to Peter John and Philomena Halter Geisner.
Harper was a graduate of Oran High School, Southeast Missouri State University, received a master's degree from Southern Illinois University and attended Columbia University in New York. She taught school 62 years.
She was a devoted member of St. Mary's Cathedral.
Her body was donated to St. Louis University School of Medicine.
A memorial Mass will be held Monday at 10 a.m. at St. Mary's Cathedral, with the Rev. Tom Kiefer officiating. The rosary will be recited at 9:30.
Corona was known by her motto for life, the poem by Robert Browning:
All's Right With The World
The year's at the spring;
The day's at the morn;
Morning's at seven;
The hillside's dew-pearled;
The lark's on the wing;
The snail's on the thorn:
God's in his heaven ...
All's right with the world!
Memorial contributions may be given to St. Mary's Cathedral.
