Peggy Gibson Corbett

Peggy Gibson Corbett, age 80, of Troy, died Saturday, June 5, 2021, at her daughter’s home.


Peggy Corbett was born July 2, 1940, the daughter of Barna and Frances Jordan Gibson.  

Peggy was a native of Troy and had worked in hosiery manufacturing.  She was a longtime, dedicated member of Mt. Carmel Baptist Church.  She was a kind and gentle soul.  Her family referred to her as angel for her disposition and all-around sweetness.  She was a devoted mother, and grandmother, loving her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren.  She also had special canine companions for many years: Precious and Woody.  Through the restrictions of this last year, her "phone friends" kept her going and were truly her lifeline.  She will be greatly missed by all who knew her.  In addition to her parents, Peggy was preceded in death by her husband: Jack Donald Corbett.  


She is survived one son: Jack Donald (Barbara) Corbett Jr. of Troy, and their children Amber and Aaron; two daughters: Amy (Randy) Lohr of Lexington, and their son, Luke; Donna (Tim) Morris of Troy, and their children Justin and Jennifer; great-grandchildren: Ty, Callie, Ella, Arwen and Achilles; and one brother: Barna Gibson of Tennessee

The family received friends Tuesday, June 8, 2021, from 1-2 p.m., at Mt. Carmel Baptist Church, 819 Mt. Carmel Church Road, Troy.  The funeral followed at 2 p.m. in the church with Rev. Rodney Holmes officiating.  Burial was in the church cemetery.
