Obituary of {subject.fullNameWithPrefixAndSuffix}

Corabelle “Corky” Gorham went peacefully into eternity to meet her Lord and Savior Tuesday, September 14, 2021. Corky was born in 1932 and grew up in Cadillac, Michigan but moved to Grand Rapids in 1968. Here, Corky raised her three children by working at Stow Davis Furniture (Steelcase) with the help of her dear sister and brother-in-law, Bob and Vickie Little, who lived across the street. She and her family found a loving church family at The People’s Church with Pastor and Marilyn Bugg and many others. After retiring from Steelcase, she became the secretary at Victory Church and later the receptionist at Serv-U-Success until she fully retired at 86 yrs. Corky lived her life to serve others and blessed everyone with whom she came into contact with her kind and thoughtful ways. She was at every family event and rarely missed any of her grandkids’ activities. Corky loved classic movies and westerns and always enjoyed ironing. She enjoyed cleaning up after snacks and meals for the family and her coworkers. She was also the best babysitter! She will be missed greatly by all of us.

Corky is survived by her children Pam (Rusty) Richter, Paul (Brenda) Gorham, Philip (Dawn) Gorham; grandchildren Andy (Erika) Richter, Adam (Emily) Richter, Jake (Jenna) Richter, Josh (Shalah) Richter, Jurnee (Joe) Long, Autumn (Ken) Vernon, Dan (Erin) Gorham, David (Veronica) Gorham, Trevor Schader, Danielle Gorham, Parker Gorham; and her precious 21 great-grandchildren who lovingly referred to her as “GG."

The family would especially like to thank those at Sunset Manor and Faith Hospice for the loving care they gave to Corky in her final days.

A funeral service will take place 4 p.m. Friday, September 17, 2021 at Cook Memorial Chapel, 4235 Prairie St. SW, Grandville, with visitation one hour prior from 3-4 p.m. In her honor, memorial contributions may be made to Global Outreach Ministries. The family welcomes memories and messages in their guest book online at www.cookcaresgrandville.com.
