Rome, Maine--Sandra Louise Corbett, a woman who faithfully served the Lord, honored her husband, supported her children and encouraged her friends died peacefully, after a brief illness, surrounded by her loving family on January 15, 2015. Born in Barrington, NJ on September 16, 1938 Sandra was the daughter of Hugo R. and Louise S. Norman (Search). She had a very happy childhood in New Jersey and graduated from Haddon Heights High School Class of 1956. She was married to Richard J. Corbett MD on August 21, 1958. They spent 41 wonderful years together and raised nine children. As a young doctor’s wife, she immersed herself in the community and was an active member of the Women’s Junior Auxiliary of Cooper Hospital. She served for a short time as the Chair of the Garden State Horseshow, raising a tremendous amount of money for the hospital. Sandy returned to college at age 37 with eight children at home and one on the way. She attended Ohio Wesleyan and earned her bachelor’s degree and master’s degree in Pastoral Counseling from LaSalle University in Philadelphia, PA. She started her career at the Alternative School in Cherry Hill, NJ and, after moving to Maine, worked at Augusta Mental Health Institute and the Seton Unit of Mid Maine Medical Center. She practiced as a family therapist for over 20 years and was fortunate to work alongside her husband for many years. She was an active member of Faith Evangelical Free Church in Waterville, ME. Following the death of her husband, Sandra was able to apply her professional and personal experiences while volunteering with the Grief Share Program at FEFC. Sandra participated in the Grief Share program as a facilitator for many years and contributed weekly as recently as last Saturday. Over the course of her professional and voluntary service she has helped untold numbers of families through a wide variety of life events. She quietly contributed to many faith based organizations over her lifetime. Sandy was a fearless advocate for those she loved and supported her children and grandchildren in every activity and sport in which they participated. She was a diehard Messalonskee High School Super Fan. Win or lose, we always knew she was proud of us. She taught all of her children and grandchildren to cook and entertain. Let’s just say…..the Corbett’s eat well! She was a world traveler and never missed an opportunity to go anywhere. It was Sandy who inspired her daughters and granddaughters to play the game of Field Hockey. She enjoyed cheering on the Majestix, Boston University, U Maine, CW Post, USM, and UNC Field Hockey Teams. She enjoyed playing bridge every Wednesday for the past 15 years.
