Welcome to Smith Miner

Linda Rebecca Corbat, 75, of Midland, passed away on July 2, 2020 at MidMichigan Medical Center. She was born on August 21, 1944 to the late Maurice and Eleanor Burrell. Linda married Gerald Corbat in November 2, 1963 and they shared 18 wonderful years together before he predeceased her on July 14, 1981.

After raising her two sons, Linda decided to go back to school to get her degree and became a medical transcriptionist at MidMichigan Medical Center. She then became an owner & operator of a Mancinos Restaurant and retired in 2004.

Upon retiring, Linda spent much of her time and love doting on her grandchildren, JT & Emily. She loved traveling & seeing the world, being in the outdoors, spending her time at her lake house in Houghton Lake, and working on crossword puzzles every day.

Linda is survived by her sons, Dustin Corbat, Darin Corbat, grandchildren, Jerald “JT”, Emily, and dearest friend Roberta Corbat. She is also survived by her siblings Barbara Olsen and Beverly (Ron) Grossmiller. She was predeceased by her brother Maurice (Mickey) Burrell.

A private family memorial service will take place at a later date. Per Linda’s request, she will be buried with the love of her life, Gerald.

In lieu of flowers those planning an expression of sympathy are asked to consider the Pardee Cancer Treatment Fund.

    Deepest sympathy on the loss of your mother. I am not sure I ever met her but the picture in the paper made her look like a very pleasant lady. There is a soft sparkle to her face.
    Dustin called me several years ago about some family history. I think your grandfather was my dad’s cousin. My dad was Francis(Jack) Burrell. If you would ever like to visit give me a call or send an e-mail.
