Vera Patricia "Pat" Corson. (July 16, 1933 - January 13, 2022)

Pat Corson, devoted wife, mother, grandmother and great grandmother passed away on January 13, 2022 at Manatawny Manor in Pottstown, PA.  She was the daughter of the late John and Vera Stelma, and the wife of the late Alvin (Matt) Corson.

Pat was a graduate of Hatboro Horsham High School and a member of the Swim and Dive team.  Always an avid swimmer, Pat worked many summers at the Unami Summer Camp and taught swim lessons well into her 70s.  She always loved being in the pool.

Nothing was more important to Pat than her family.  She always looked forward to spending holidays and vacations together with them.  Pat enjoyed camping with her husband and friends, anything crafty and was involved in all things family related.

Pat, also known as "Cory" the clown, was a member of the North Penn Clown Alley and taught the art of clowning for many years to students at the Hatboro Horsham Adult Evening School.  Cory always loved making people laugh and looking forward to performing in the Mardi Gras Parade in Lansdale every year.

Along with her husband, Alvin (Matt) Corson and her parents, Pat was predeceased by her sisters, Ann and Joan.

She is survived by her two children, Patty Gogel (Scott) and John Corson (Joanie), five grandchildren, Tricia Conver (Brian), Jonathan Corson (Kristin), Kimberly Cates (Tyler), Darren Corson (Chelsea) and Brooke Corson.  Six great-great grandchildren:  Maddie Conver, Evan Conver, Violet Corson, Everett Corson, Kellen Cates and Brielle Corson.

Many nieces and nephews.
