    Corky, you are now in the great blue yonder visiting my grandparents, at a party with your big family, and reunited with my dad. Rest in peace

  2. Mary (Rivera) Griswold says:

    Pepper, so sorry for your loss. I saw the Obituary in the paper this morning and knew that “Corky” had to be your sister, I remembered the name and thought there is only one Corky I know. Pepper you and I worked together at The Hartford Ins back in the 60’s, remember? You spoke so often of your family and how much fun you had together. I know that she will be terribly missed by all who loved her. Prayers for you and all of your family during this sad time

  3. Anthony Devevo says:

    Always a solid friend of the family and a loving wife.
    My deepest condolences to the Corbidges on Corky’s passing.
    Remember the good times – they were many.
