Judith A. Corson
Judith A. Corson, 71, of Newark Valley passed away early Friday morning, November 30, 2012. Judy is survived by her loving husband of almost 48 years, William E. Corson, Jr., and her cherished children, Josie (Todd) Spencer, Doris (Lance) Hagin, William E. (Lora) Corson III, Myra (Loren) Harkness, and grandchildren, Cody (Marcy), Chris (Jess), Rachelle, Lindsay, William IV and Gregory.

Her faithful canine companion, Sally, will also be missing Judy. Born on October 18, 1941 in Endicott, she was a daughter of the late John R. and Anna H. (Gosline) Rosenberger, Sr. She was predeceased by her siblings, Jerald, Chris and Jane. Judy was a graduate of Newark Valley High School class of 1961. She was a devoted wife who worked side by side with Bill and assisted him in every detail on the farm. Her family meant the world to her. She was an excellent cook and seamstress, enjoyed horses, showed a keen interest in her grandchildren's activities from barrel racing to cattle shows, was a former 4-H leader and loved to go 'four- wheelin' so her Sally could run the range. Treasured memories of a wonderful wife, mother and grandma will be forever in our hearts!
