Corby B. Havard

May 6, 1960 — March 29, 2023


Corby B. Havard, or Nana as she was lovingly known to her family, was a kind-hearted and selfless individual who always put the needs of others before herself. Born on May 06, 1960, in Leakesville, Mississippi, Corby dedicated her life to raising her family and being a faithful companion. On March 29, 2023, at the age of 62, Corby peacefully passed away at Providence Hospital.

Corby will always be remembered as a loving and caring mother, sister, and grandmother who had a heart of gold. She had a giving heart and was always willing to lend a helping hand to those in need. Her family meant everything to her, and she was always there to support them, no matter the circumstances. Corby was a hard worker and did everything with meticulous care and precision.

One of Corby's greatest passions was spending time outdoors, and she had a particular love for gardening. She could often be found tending to her beloved plants or working around her home, ensuring that everything was in perfect condition. Her dedication to her plants mirrored her dedication to her family as she always took great care to ensure that they were well-nurtured and thriving. She took after her mother and inherited a strong-willed, fireball of a personality that stood out to all who knew and loved her. Additionally, Corby loved her pets May and Gray Gray, and they were an essential part of her life. She found joy in spending time with them and taking care of them.

Corby had a special place in the hearts of all who knew her, and her legacy of kindness, selflessness, and dedication lives on. She was a woman who always put others first and gave everything she had to the ones she loved. Although she may no longer be with us, Corby will forever be remembered as a shining example of how to live a life filled with love, joy, and compassion. She will be deeply missed by all those who knew her, but her spirit will live on forever.

Corby B. Havard's love for her family was evident to all who knew her. She leaves behind her devoted husband of 42 years, Paul Havard, and their son, Daniel R. Havard, and his loving wife Amidee. Her cherished grandchildren, Dawson, Chloe, Katherine, James, and Albry will always remember her love and warmth. Corby's sister, Tina Nader and her husband, Vic, were an important part of her life, especially during difficult times. Corby was preceded in death by her eldest daughter, Allie Lee Browning, and her parents, Billy and Jean Beaty. She was also predeceased by her mother and father-in-law, Paul M. and Martha Havard. Corby shared a special, unbreakable bond with Paul's grandmother, Allie Havard, after whom they named their daughter. Corby could often be found spending time with and caring for Allie before her passing. The love and memories that Corby shared with her family will be carried on by them, along with the knowledge that they were a special and cherished part of her life.
