This online memorial was created in loving memory of Emily Corbin, whose life story is told throughout this memorial website. Please sign Emily's guest book and let us know you came to visit. We will remember Emily forever.
Those who knew Emily didn't forget her. Her smile, her sense of humor, her laugh or her kindness. Emily was able to see "past" the outside and always found an endearing quality in other's hearts.
Because of her own brokeness, Emily seemed to align herself with others who shared her feelings. After her parent's divorce when she was an infant and her father disappeared from her life; and this was something that she never truly got over.
In her search to fill this emptiness she became involved in drugs. She became a mother at fifteen.
During a period of desperation and fear, she hanged herself with a bedsheet as she sat alone in a jail cell contemplating an uncertain future and battling a raging addiction to methamphetamine. When she was found, she had managed to sneak in a picture of her son and a ring given to her by her mother. Since these things meant enough to her to risk sneaking them in with her, she was buried with these momentos.
In addition to Emily's little son Kyler, she left behind her little brother Colton, her mother Julie and her grandparents John and Judy Ashurst, uncles Eric and Justin Ashurst and sisters Kelly, Bonnie, Cathy, and Louise as well as brothers Jeremiah, and Winson, Jr.
Even through Emily's addiction, she remained close to Jesus. Just weeks prior to her death, in the company of other addicted friends she would attend church...looking for, asking for and praying for deliverance.
But sometimes, deliverance comes in many forms. Although Emily's deliverance wasn't what the rest of us wanted for her - she is free now.
No more addiction. No more pain. And now she's with her Father - Her Heavenly Father.
We all miss you baby girl.
Until I see you again,
