Obituary

Obituary for Marian Delores Corkery

In Loving Memory
Marian D. Corkery
(Granny)

June 18, 1937 ~ October 29, 2019
She was born June 18, 1937 in the Salvation Army Women’s Hospital in Keenesburg Colorado, and because of this she always made it a point to donate to the Salvation Army.
She grew up in Colorado and met her first husband Chester Campbell in 1951 in Longmont, Colorado. They had five children: Chet, Christine, Rick, Mike and Tim. They lived in Longmont until Chester passed away in 1959. With her 5 children, she moved in with her Mom and Dad. Then, in 1961, she married Delmar Martinson and had another son, Steve. In 1965 they moved from Longmont, Colorado to New York, where they lived for 3 years. From New York they moved to Louisiana and then on to Mississippi during the time of Hurricane Camille. In 1971 she gave birth to a daughter, Lori. Then, in 1972, she and the family moved back to Colorado for Delmar’s cancer treatment. He passed away in 1975 leaving her a widow for a second time with 7 children.
She remained in Colorado with her family, waitressing for a living. In 1976 she met Dan Corkery and they married in 1978. They lived in Arvada, Colorado, until he passed away in January 1985. A third time widow she kept going and got her GED, working in real estate, working as a Mary Kay Consultant and even working as a black jack dealer in Central City. Her home was always open to anyone who needed a place to stay or a game of cards to play. She took care of her elderly Uncle in her home until he passed at age 101. She also took in 5 foreign exchange students at different times making them feel like part of the family. They were Daisuke, Sakura, Kosuke, Erika, and Kyle. She would go to a Rockies game whenever she could and was a huge Broncos fan. She was a lover of family and friends, traveling, hiking, Columbine flowers and hummingbirds.
A woman of strength and determination, she had a smile and a laugh that filled the room. She lived life to the fullest and will be missed. Her love remains in all who were loved by her.
She is preceded in death by husbands Chester Campbell, Delmar Martinson and Dan Corkery and her children Christine and Tim.
She is survived by her children Chet, Rick, Mike, Steve, Lori and numerous grandchildren, great and great-great grandchildren.

I knew Marian the last 6 years of her life through our church circle, Wisdom Keepers luncheons and after church brunches. I had just moved here from Texas and Marian quickly made me feel welcome in a group where most people had known each other for many years. I mostly raised 4 children by myself and understood and admired her strength in raising 7 children and losing 3 husbands to death. Marian was down to earth, a lot of fun, very sweet but she could speak her mind. I admired her strength. It was a privilege to know her and very much regret she did not have more years to spend with us. To her family, I understand this tremendous loss and know that she will be looking over you as always. You are her greatest work and finest legacy. It was always apparent her family loved her as I told her many times. Please accept my condolences. Elaine Pild
