Madeline Corbin - 13
June 21, 2022
Madeline Grace Corbin lost her multi-year battle with depression and anxiety on Sunday, June 19, 2022. She was 13. Maddie was born on March 16, 2009, in Erie, PA, and from day one her tender heart and sweet spirit could be seen. Known by her friends as "Rose," Maddie saw the best in everyone and was an incredible advocate for her friends and the "underdog". She gave the best hugs and was a great snuggle bug. Her natural curiosity, love of learning, and creativity meant that puzzles were always in progress, a cosplay costume was being planned or worn, her room's walls were being filled with artwork or being repainted with intricate designs, and an anime book was never far. Maddie succeeded in the classroom but also loved to spend time in nature and was always happy to take a walk in the woods, find rocks in the creek or go mushroom hunting. She had aspirations of being a professional baker and loved to make and share her famous cookies with friends and family. Maddie spent the last 18 months working so hard on herself with her incredible team of support services to overcome depression and anxiety. We are so proud of her and so thankful to everyone who poured into her and prayed for her. Maddie is survived by her parents, Ben Corbin and Meghan (Steve) Kinter; her siblings, Ethan, Rachel, and Harrison; step-siblings, Ryleigh and J. T. Kinter; her maternal grandparents, Tom and Sue Duda; her paternal grandmother, Margaret Corbin; and many aunts, uncles, and cousins. She was preceded in death by her paternal grandfather, Earl Corbin. Family and friends are warmly invited to call at the Dusckas-Taylor Funeral Home & Cremation Services, 5151 Buffalo Rd. (at Hannon Rd. in Harborcreek Twp. ), on Friday, June 24, from 2 to 4 and 6 to 8 p. m. and are invited to attend a Celebration of Life Service there on Saturday, June 25, at 10 a. m. In her honor, a memory board will be provided to share memories of Maddie. We will compile these for something memorable and meaningful in her memory. You can bring something small with you (a note or a photo) to attach to the board or there will be index cards provided. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be designated to the Achievement Center of LECOM Health.
