The daughter of Richard and Emma Corbett (Drew), she was born on October 27, 1930,in Bloomingdale, where she remained a lifelong resident.

Anyone that knew Edna, be it one of her kids or grandkids, her friends, her neighbors, or even the UPS guy for example, knew that it was her life’s mission to feed you even when you insisted you were not hungry. “Are you hungry? I have White Castles. How about a grilled cheese?” will be etched into our minds forever.  She loved nothing more than spending time with her family, going out to lunch and going shopping. We will sincerely miss her stories, her gossip, and the way she corrected everybody. She was truly a special, caring, and funny woman, and we take solace knowing that she is now with her beloved John again. May you Rest in Peace Gog. We all loved you so much!
