Betty Marie Jensen Corbett, 75, went to meet her beloved husband, Jack, on Saturday, Jan. 19, 2013, in Preston, Idaho. Betty was born March 15, 1937, to Albert and Florence Jensen. She was an only child.
She married Donald Jack Corbett March 12, 1958, in Preston, Idaho. The wedding took place at Gwen Call’s home and soon after the couple began their marriage in Mink Creek. Years later they moved to Preston where they made their home and raised their two children, Jacke and Shane. After being married for 39 years, Jack Corbett passed away May 30, 1997.
Betty was an active part of the community and was always on top of everything that was going on in town. Betty could tell you anything and everything you wanted to know. Betty loved visiting with her friends and family; she would call them often to find a new story about what was happening. She was well known for her knowledge and her information. Her son Shane would often call her for the 4-1-1 because she would always know the new chatter going on in the valley. It wouldn’t be a normal day if you didn’t hear the news from Betty.
Betty is survived by her children Jacke of Salt Lake City, Utah, and Shane (Sherrie) Corbett of Preston, Idaho; two grandchildren, Brooke and Austin; as well as close friends Corrinne Jones and Galina Perova. She was preceded in death by her parents Albert and Florence Jensen and her husband Donald Jack.
Our family would like to thank the Franklin County Medical Center and Betty’s extended family for the loving care they gave her in her last months and throughout her life.
Funeral services will be held at noon Thursday, Jan. 24, 2013, in the Preston North Stake Center, 310 N. State St. in Preston, Idaho.
