Anna E. Corwin, 89, devoted wife, loving mother and proud Noni passed away after a brief illness surrounded by her loving family. Anna was a longtime member of St. Anthony of Padua Catholic church, Endicott, N.Y.
Born in Scranton on May 8, 1933, she was the daughter of the late John and Adele Panettieri Martini. She is predeceased by her two brothers, Orlando and Gino (Kathryn) Martini and three sisters, Flora, Linda and Mary Martini. She is survived by her caring husband Robert (Corky) Corwin, devoted daughters & son in law’s Adele Marie & Joseph Dray, Deborah & Keith Woodsinger, Lisa Corwin & Jim Mayers. Her loving grandchildren Amber Dray & Adam Lubbe, Ashley & Alyssa Dray, Ian, Jordan and Noah Woodsinger and Justine Carlson. Nephews Anthony and Allyson Martini & Stephen and Carol Martini and their families and her dearest family friend and spiritual support, Father Robert Pagliari; Brother-in-law and sister in law Donald and Teresa Corwin.
Anna grew up in Scranton, PA and worked as a medical transcriptionist prior to her marriage and becoming an extraordinary homemaker. She was small but had a big heart and a lively spirit for politics, religion and was an avid Boston Red Sox fan. She was very devoted to her Catholic faith and prayed the rosary and watched mass daily. She passed the time working on crossword puzzles, and never left a Sunday newspaper crossword incomplete. She enjoyed listening to old time country music especially Kenny Rogers. She enjoyed her time spent and the friendships she made at Tioga Downs Casino, but most of all, she cherished the time she spent with her loving family, who cared for her deeply and brought her great joy.
A Funeral Mass will be celebrated Tuesday 11 am at St. Anthony of Padua Church, 306 Odell Avenue, Endicott. Entombment will be in Riverhurst Cemetery, Endicott. The family will receive friends at church Tuesday from 10 am until Mass time at 11 am.
Our hearts are heavy with sadness at our loss. We have faith she is reunited with her sisters and brothers whom she deeply loved & missed. Rest In Peace ‘Anna Banana.’
