Cora Mae Corbin Obituary

Cora Mae Corbin

Cora Marie 4/3/198412/16/2016
Cora Corbin was born July 3, 1984 in Kalamazoo, Michigan. She was born the daughter of John and Linda Corbin (deceased). After the passing of her mother at a young age, Cora was then raised by John and Karen Corbin. Cora and her family moved to Toledo, Ohio in 1999, where she resided until our angel received her wings on Friday, December 16, 2016.

Cora graduated from Rogers High School, in 2002. She played volleyball, ran cross-country and was a cheerleader. She was employed at Mercy Hospital for five years before following her dreams to become a natural hair-stylist.

Graduating from hair school in 2014, Cora’s God-given talents for Natural Hair Care were visible as family, friends and “Newbies” near and far trusted her to make them glisten as they walked away from her chair at BeYOUtiful Salon, located in Toledo, Ohio, where she believed “Being YOU…is to BE BEAUTIFUL!”
Besides doing hair, Cora possessed many other talents. Her creativity set her aside from others. She loved baking cakes, painting, sewing, and experimenting with different foods.

This chick was one adventurous daredevil, whether it was jumping out of planes, bungee jumping, or zip lining. She always lived life to the fullest.

She was energetic and full of life, a beautiful soul who was always willing to help others. Her beautiful smile could light up any room. Her warm angelic ways made her loved by many.
Cora was a devoted mom of two boys, Lj and baby Tj, whom she loved with her heart and soul; she would do anything for them. She was also a beautiful daughter, a loving sister, and a great aunt to her nieces and nephews.
Cora was preceded in death by mother, Linda Corbin; two grandfathers, Billy Woods and Nantko Boltjes; two grandmothers, Beverly Carnegie and Juanita Thomas.

She leaves to mourn, her loving parents; two beautiful sons, Ladonn Coleman Jr. and Terry Campbell Jr.; four sisters, Natasha Craven, Jonna Corbin, Calise Corbin and Ayrika (Lawrence) Layton; one brother, Prentiss (Kaitlynne) Gray; maternal grandmother, Doris Woods; seven aunts; one uncle; seven nephews; five nieces, and a host of cousins and friends.

Wake services are 7:00 to 9:00 p.m. Monday, December 26, 2016 at House of Day Funeral Home. Funeral services Tuesday 1:00 p.m., preceded by wake services at 12:00 noon at First Church of God. Pastor Robert Culp officiant.

William A. Gantt Obituary

William A. Gantt Sept. 3, 1924 – Nov. 16, 2015 SOUTH BEND – Mr. William A. Gantt (Mr. Bill, Poppy) went home to be with the Lord on Monday, November 16, 2015. He was surrounded by his family who loved and respected him dearly. He was 91 years old. Mr. Gantt was born to Nellie Mae Ezell and Thomas Lee on September 3, 1924, in Mound City, Arkansas. He gave His life to Christ and was baptized at the age of 14 at Second St. John Church in Arkansas. He served his country dutifully for 18 years. Mr. Gantt was so loyal and dedicated to his country that he served time in the U.S. Army, and after ending his career in that branch of service, he served in the U.S. Air Force. He resided in Cleveland, Ohio, for most of his life and retired as an Environmental Engineer. His hobbies were watching sports (The Ohio State Buckeyes being his favorite team), solving crossword and word search puzzles. In February of 2000 he married his childhood crush, Vera King, whom he treated like a queen. They moved to South Bend, Indiana, in 2010 where he resided until his death. Surviving along with his wife, Vera, are a sister, Sam Ella Shields; two daughters, Ella Mae Gantt and Chanel Whitby; five sons, Ricardo, Ronald (Dakota), Calvin (Annie), Bruce, Tyrone and Dwayne Gantt.

He was preceded in death by his parents, a son, Billy Gantt, and a stepson, Joseph L. King. Mr. Gantt was a gentle, humble, soft-spoken man with a heart of gold.
