Dortha Jean Corley (nee Ellison)

Friday, October 5, 2012, Dortha Jean Corley reached out and touched the Face of God, and He welcomed her home. Dortha was born March 17, 1936, in Ligget Addition, a suburb of Buckhannon, West Virginia.

Dortha met her husband to be in 1951, and married William Hobert Corley in 1953, moving to Elyria, where they lived the rest of her life.

Together they had five children: sons, Stephan Randall, Kevin Neal and Brian Hobert Corley; daughters, Connie Lynn Lanning and Tamara Louise Corley; nine grandchildren; and eight great grandchildren.

She was preceded in death by her mother, Mary Smith; four brothers; and three sisters.

She is a lifelong member of The Church of God and loved helping in the church, until she was unable to continue doing so, because of her illness.

Dortha and her hubby were married 59 1/2 years, before God called her home. Sentiments of the children, “Dortha is the greatest wife, mom and grandma ever”.

Friends will be received Sunday, October 7, 2012, from 4 until 6 P.M., at Dicken Funeral Home, 323 Middle Ave., Elyria. A funeral service will be Monday, October 8, 2012, at 11 A.M., in the funeral home, with Reverend Joseph Kelly officiating. Burial will be in Resthaven Memory Gardens, Avon.
