She was born on the 31st day of July in 1927, to the late Frank and Nora Sneed Corbin and married the love of her life on the 18th day of October 1947. As long as health allowed she was a faithful member of Friendship Missionary Baptist Church #1 of Jonesville, KY. She spent her life in enjoyment serving the Lord with all she had while supporting her husband as a Baptist Minister, being a great home maker and raising her children and grandchildren. Living her life was a tough road but she always made the best of what God gave her, she strived to mention every one of her great family every day in prayer and left it all in God’s hands. No doubt her great family will continue to reap the benefits of the prayers spoken from the heart of this wonderful woman. She lived her life with little blemish thanks to God above, it would be hard to ever know a more perfect person. The one thing that she ever feared was the thought of someone in her reach was not going to make it to Heaven with her. Ask yourself how did this great woman influence your life?

Parrish; an infant son, Daniel Parrish; two grandchildren, Kimberly Parrish and Valerie Lyons Wiggins; two great grandchildren, James Vaughn and Andre Parrish; six siblings (one brother in infancy), Ollie Corbin, James Corbin, Mary Gowen, Irene Crawhorn and Dorothy Petty and one son in law, Ronnie Furkin.
