BETTY CORBITT February 5, 1953 - July 14, 2017 Betty Corbitt, age 64, passed peacefully from this world on July 14, 2017, at her home in Kennewick, Washington, surrounded by her family. Betty was born to Lawrence and Clare (Mansfield) Fagerland in Seattle in 1953. She lived in several locations around the Pacific Northwest, graduating from Kennewick High School in 1971. In 1983, Betty married the love of her life, David Corbitt, and together they shared many adventures. The joy of their lives, Kellan, was born in 1989. When David's life was cut tragically short by cancer in 1991, Betty became a devoted single mother, bravely shouldering the roles of both parents for her son. Betty was a small business owner for many years and was passionate about improving the quality and beauty of people's lives through interior design, floral arrangements, fashion, and other customer-focused ventures. She touched the lives of many in our community as she shared her faith, cheered on the Seattle Seahawks, volunteered with numerous charitable organizations, and spent time with her cherished friends, family, and beloved pets. Betty's adventurous spirit led her to travel widely throughout Europe, South America, and the United States. When Betty was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2014, she fought it into remission for a couple of years before it returned and ultimately claimed her life. She actively supported the Tri-Cities Cancer Center and often presented messages of encouragement to those undergoing cancer treatments. Betty was also an energetic, involved member of St. Paul's Episcopal Church in Kennewick, which she attended most of her life. She was an inspiration to many and she will be sorely missed by all of those who loved her. Betty was preceded in death by her parents, her beloved sister, Clare, and her husband, David. She is survived by her "sweet baboo" Kellan (Makayla) Corbitt and her precious pets: Mandy, Mia, and Bebe. Betty's family is grateful to all of Betty's dear friends who have helped us during this difficult time. Please join us in celebrating Betty's life on Saturday, July 22, 2017 at 6:30 p.m. at St. Paul's Episcopal Church in Kennewick (with a potluck reception to follow). In lieu of flowers, memorial donations in Betty's name can be made to the Tri-Cities Cancer Center in Kennewick, Washington.
