Rose Mary and the family moved to North Hebron in 1958.
Rose Mary was a homemaker and loved being home to care for the family as well as their many animals. Being outdoors was her heaven. Now she is up in the real Heaven watching over each of us.
She was an avid reader and loved sewing and music. She had a special devotion to the Blessed Mother.
She was a faithful member of St. Mary’s Congregation in Granville.
An honor of distinction for Rose Mary was being named by the New York State Health Facilities Association Inc. as a “Volunteer of the Year.” She also received the New York Health Facilities award on a district level with her husband, Charles. This honor was bestowed upon her for her outstanding service at the Indian River Rehabilitation and Nursing Center in Granville where she volunteered for more than 20 years.
Besides her parents, she is predeceased by her husband, Charles H. Corbett, her sister, Helen M. Crane and brother Charles Moeller, Jr., all of New Jersey, and an infant great-grandson, Aidan J.
