Margaret "Mina-Ann" Corcoran Death Notice

On January 3, 2024, Margaret Mina-Ann Corcoran (nee Young) of Morinville, Alberta passed away at the age of 82 years.

Mina was born at home on the farm in South Himsworth, Ontario on July 26, 1941. She was the fifth child of 10 of Frederick and Ruth (King) Young.

She was married to Robert Gerard (Gerry) Corcoran on April 29, 1961 in St. Rose of Lima Church in Scarborough, Ontario. Mina and Gerry lived in Toronto until 1964 and then lived in Pickering, Ontario until 1975. At that time, they moved out west to Alberta. Gerry and Mina enjoyed living on a hobby farm in Gibbons, Alberta. They raised farm animals and horses. Mina loved gardening and had a large vegetable garden on the farm. She had a big heart and always welcomed the many friends and co-workers her husband and children would bring home for a visit and a meal. Mina also worked as a Supervisor at the Redwater IGA. Mina was very active in the Catholic Church. She was a CWL member for many years. She taught catechism and was an active volunteer in many organizations.

She loved hockey and was an avid fan of the Edmonton Oilers. Besides gardening, she loved cooking, arts and crafts and was known for her many beautiful earrings.

Mina will be remembered as a loving, caring person with a positive attitude. She was like a mother to many. Throughout her life, she was encouraging, generous and always thought of others rather than herself. She was a living example of Jesus’ love and her family and friends were very blessed to have her in their lives.

She will be lovingly remembered by her children, John, Michael (Annemarie), Paul (Cindy), Diane Kopp (Kevin), Mark (Elisa), grandchildren, Jessie, Kristina, Kyle, Brianne, Robert, Michelle, Gerard, Stuart, Tyler and great grandchildren, Kailey, Jayden and Chloé. She will also be missed by her siblings, Theresa,

Kalvin (Beverley), Stephen (Gail), Frank (Kathy), Veronica (Mark) and Helen (Paul) and her many nieces and nephews whom she loved greatly.

Preceded in death by her husband, Robert Gerard (Gerry) Corcoran, her parents, Frederick and Ruth Young, her sister, Phillis McKenna, her brothers, Lloyd (late Shirley), James (late Irene), Lyle Young and brother-in-law, Robert Miller.
