Kathleen Marie Corbin

Kathleen Marie Corbin passed away at her home with her family by her side on September 27, 2020, after a 3 year battle with ovarian cancer. She was born on July 26, 1949, in Beach, ND to Kenneth and Mary Ley of Wibaux, MT. She grew up on the family farm south of Wibaux and worked hard doing the chores at a young age after losing her mother to cancer.

Kathleen married Leo Fischer on February 13, 1968. Together they had 2 daughters. Juanita was born June 19, 1972, in Choteau, MT and Jodi was born July 30, 1975, in Billings, MT. They later divorced in November 1981.

In 1989, she met a middle aged bachelor named David Corbin. After 2 years of courtship, they married August 3, 1991, at the Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Miles City, MT. They lived in Fallon, Scobey and then made their home in Miles City on Dec 13, 1999. They enjoyed camping and traveling to the NFR, Branson, MO and Nashville, TN.

Kathleen worked most of her life working in Medical Records for Holy Rosary Hospital, Garberson Clinic and retired from Billings Clinic. She loved planting her flowers in the spring and sitting outside watching her chickens run around the yard as well as spending time with her girls and grandchildren.

Kathleen had strength and willpower to the end. She was a very soft-spoken and compassionate lady. Even through her ordeal with cancer, she seldom complained about what she was going through and kept a smile on her face. Kathleen never a missed an NFL game. She kept track of all the teams and scores in her little book by her chair and was able to watch her Kansas City Chiefs win the 2020 Super Bowl.

Kathleen is survived by her husband David Corbin of Miles City, MT, a son Jim Ullom (Brandy and 2 daughters Cortney and Skylar) of Wallingford, CT, daughters Juanita Robertson and Jodi Wootan (Casey) of Miles City, a sister Teresa Bruha (Doug) of Baker, MT, brothers Johnny Ley of Worden, MT, Marvin Ley (Pam) of Glendive, MT, Jerry Ley of Denver, CO, 2 grandchildren Tyler Wootan (Madahi) and Abigail Wootan of Miles City, 2 great grandchildren Jocelyn and Taos Wootan and numerous nieces and nephews.
