Ada Mary Grace Corbett, of Seaforth, passed away suddenly at Seaforth Community Hospital, on Tuesday, April 7, 2020. In her 83 years among us Grace was a source of caring and kindness within the circle of her family, friends and community. In her work as a nurse, as part of her church family, and as an exercise coach promoting health and wellness amongst seniors, Grace’s friendly smile and warm demeanor were a gift to many. Family gatherings were special times with Grace ensuring all the seasonal touches were added.
Grace will be lovingly remembered by her husband Norman Dawe. Cherishing memories of a much loved mother are Jim and Marla Corbett of Guelph, Steven Corbett of Stratford, Karen Corbett of Bangkok, Thailand and son-in-law Keith Harburn and Nicola of Milton. Memories of a much loved grandmother remain with Dilan and Allison, Spencer, Meghann, Carrie, Tracie and Samir, Nathan and Polly and great granddaughter Nancy Polly. Grace will also be fondly remembered by sister-in-law Elizabeth Larder and the Dawe family.
In faith, we trust that Grace’s spirit is now reunited in eternal life with her first husband Donald (2004), their daughter Nancy (2002), siblings Patricia Douglas and Robert Larder and her parents Albert and Mary (née Hepworth) Larder.
Haskett Funeral Home, 87 Goderich Street West, Seaforth are entrusted with arrangements. Honouring Grace’s wishes cremation has taken place and inurnment will take place in Maitlandbank Cemetery. A time for friends and family to gather and celebrate the many ways Grace influenced our lives will take place when love, support and hugs can once again be shared safely. In the meantime, remember Grace with a smile and take a moment to enjoy a good piece of chocolate as Grace always so enjoyed.
As expressions of sympathy, memorial donations to Seaforth Community Hospital Auxiliary or the Seaforth Lions Park and Pool Fund would be appreciated by the family.
