Patsy Lou Corbin, known to many as just “Pat”, “Ma Pat”, “Aunt Pat”, “Sis”, or “Grandma”, was born on March 15, 1947 to the late James and Cynthia Taylor. She departed this life onto Glory on October 23, 2019.

Pat was educated in the Accomack County Public Schools. One of her biggest accomplishments in this life was, after raising children, furthering her education to proudly become a CNA and work in a field that allowed her to use her hands and her heart.

To know Pat Corbin was to love her. If you loved her, you loved her food, for cooking was her passion. If she was cooking, EVERYONE was eating! She was a lady who enjoyed the simple things in life and she was a giver. She loved God; she loved her family. Known for saying “When we leave here, we can’t take nothing with us.”, Patsy Lou Corbin has taken on with her a piece of the hearts of those who knew her throughout this earthly journey.
