Catherine Corbo Obituary

Catherine A. Corbo passed away peacefully on Monday, December 4, 2023, surrounded by her loving children and husband. She will be taking a seat at the card table with her sisters in heaven. She was born on September 14, 1938, in Moriah, NY. Catherine was the seventh child born to James and Cora (Treadway) Connors. Her and her eight siblings were extremely close throughout their lives.

She attended school at Champlain Academy in Port Henry, NY. Upon graduating, she received a full nursing scholarship. The winds of destiny changed her plans from nursing school. Catherine married the love of her life, Francis Corbo Jr. on December 31, 1960. Together they raised five children in Essex Junction, VT. Their home was a welcoming space to all who entered.

She is survived by two siblings, Beverly Baker of Moriah, NY, Gerald Linney of Rouses Point, NY, and one sister-in-law, Elizabeth Goodspeed of Voyer, PA. She leaves behind her loving husband of 63 years, Francis, and their five children: Kelly Pratt (Brian), Kathleen Irick, Kim Boudah (Thomas), Karen Reid (Scott), and Francis D. (Pam Harris) She also leaves behind Lori Hammond Smith (Curt) and Jason Charron (DeAnn) who she loved like her own children.

She also leaves behind eight grandchildren: Emily Pratt, Sarah Pratt, Thomas Boudah, Bailey Corbo, Cassidy Reid, Kayla Irick, Richard Irick, and Riley Corbo. Catherine also leaves behind Lillie Reid, Avery Charron, & Alyssa Hammond who called her Nannie their whole lives. Catherine loved the sound of her grandchildren calling her “Nannie” and the sweet sound of memories being made at her pool.

There will be a wake at Harland Funeral Home on Saturday, December 16, 2023, between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 10:30 a.m. A mass of Christian burial will be celebrated at St. Patrick’s Church at 11:00 a.m. in Port Henry, NY, the church in which Catherine & Francis were married. Following the mass, Catherine will be laid to rest in the old section of St. Patrick’s Cemetery with close proximity to her beloved sisters. Afterword, there will be a gathering to remember and celebrate her life at The Old Miners Tavern in Moriah, NY.

Catherine’s family would like to thank the wonderful healthcare professionals at Green Mountain Nursing Home and The UVM Medical Center for their loving care and support at the end of our mother’s life journey. Catherine is now at peace in her Lord’s arms.
