Mary Lynn was born in Toledo, Ohio to the late Lynn and Gladys McClelland on July 25, 1930. She is survived by her husband Glenn Richard “Dick” Corbin. She met Dick at Findlay High School when he wooed her into doing his homework after breaking his arm. They were married on June 20, 1954. Three sons completed their family. Bruce (Annie) of Indialantic, Florida, Doug (Tami) of Findlay, Jeff (Barbie) of Findlay. She dearly loved her four grandchildren: Lauren (Greg) Corbin Moser of Findlay, Ryan (Amanda) Corbin of Van Buren, Kyle (Kymberly) Corbin of Vista, California, Molly (Collin) Corbin Fenimore of Findlay and her four step grandchildren, Esmeralda Sanchez of Florida, Harold Hojilla currently stationed in South Korea, Haley (Shawn) Bakies Burgderfer of West Jefferson, Ohio, Eric Bakies of Columbus, Ohio. She was also blessed with five great-grandchildren: Braelynn and Harper Moser, Monti and Corbin Fenimore, Ellie Burgderfer and Baby Boy Corbin arriving soon in California.

Both Mary Lynn and Dick graduated from Findlay High School with the Class of 1948. Mary Lynn went on to earn her merchandising degree at The Ohio State University. While in college she was a member of Alpha Xi Delta Sorority. For 20+ years Mary Lynn shared her love of painting when she welcomed customers into her craft store, LynCraft. Christmas trees around the globe are joyfully adorned, each year, with LynCraft ornaments that originally cost $.50 but, as recently stated, “they are priceless”.
