Loving Mother, Sister, Friend and Life Saver
Linda Corcoran Hill Korber, of Florida, previously of Prospect, entered into heaven on August 31, 2019. Linda was born October 1, 1942 a daughter of the late Edward and Eileen (Miller) Corcoran. She was always the life of the party and became a life saver when she donated her bone marrow for her brother Gary. Linda was afraid of hospitals but overcame that fear in order to be able to help save her brother’s life.
She loved cooking, was the line cook for Dairy Bar and Painted Pony and various area restaurants. She enjoyed her Halloween Birthdays, and socializing at Rosie’s Bar in Florida. Fantastic memories were made when she joined the family on an unforgettable Vermont vacation where they all caught fish in the lake, scaled them, and ate them.
Linda fought hard to live but ultimately lost the battle to cancer. She was airlifted not once but twice to the hospital in a medivac helicopter. Linda lived her life according to the Sinatra song “My Way” and left many, many wonderful memories to be cherished by her children Stacie Barnes and Frederick Hill III. and her brothers Edward Corcoran Jr. and Gary Corcoran.
