Anna M. Corbett – 11/14/2019

November 18th, 2019

Anna Marie Corbett, age 89, of Upper Chichester, Pa peacefully passed away in her home on November 14, 2019. Born to Frank and Anna Mayer of Philadelphia on June 13, 1930, she grew up in the Germantown area of Philadelphia, a graduate of Little Flower Catholic High School and then completed business school before moving to Upper Chichester 65 years ago.  She is preceded in death by her parents, sisters and devoted husband, Robert “Ned” Corbett.  Anna is survived by her loving children Lois Helmerson, Lynn Brown, June Parsons and Robert Corbett; eight grandchildren and 4 great grand children.  Throughout her life, Anna was an active member of the community.  Years ago she was a member of the Ogden Fire Company Ladies Auxiliary, worked at the township office, volunteered at the election polls, helped with school events and was a Girl Scout Leader. When she returned to the workforce in the early 1970’s she excelled in the accounting field working her way from junior accountant to manager for a large Philadelphia firm. Her entrepreneurial spirit and love of photography then compelled her to be a business owner of a one hour photo lab. In later years she became active with the Upper Chichester Senior Center and enjoyed the weekly gatherings and trips to Atlantic City.  Besides her all encompassing love of family, Anna loved painting, travel, photography and entertaining.  She especially loved hosting holiday parties.  Her brilliant smile and kind heart welcomed everyone into her home with graciousness and warmth.  In honor of Anna’s memory it is only appropriate for her celebration of life to be a gathering of friends and family at the place she called home.

Please join her family and friends to celebrate her life on Saturday, December 14 beginning at 4pm in the family home in Upper Chichester to honor Anna’s life and memory.

    When we were children, Aunt Annie and Uncle Bob, my godparents, were a big part of the lives of myself and my siblings and, of course, her dear sister, Hilda. They never lost that special bond with each other. As the years went by, we all saw less of one another but Aunt Annie always made sure we knew she’d be there if we needed her. One of the last times we all got together after Mom died, she insisted that she host my wedding, it couldn’t be any pave else. Such an act of love given that she didn’t have the energy she once had. She could be tough but she also was gentle and caring and we will all miss her. So many happy times to remember. We will be there, cousins, to celebrate with you a life well lived.
