Janet Corbett PORTLAND -- Janet Corbett, aka Deb, Debbie, Nanny Deb, and The Nana, passed away after a brief illness at Maine Medical Center on Thursday, Oct. 23, 2014. Deb was a beloved mother and Nana who lived her life always giving and lending a helping hand. Born in South Hampton, England in 1939, she moved to the U.S. in the late 50s. After traveling and living all over the country she settled down in Maine and continued her career at Nynex in 1971. Deb truly enjoyed her work, the volunteer opportunities it brought and the lifelong friends she made prior to retiring from Verizon in 2000. She began her most treasured role as a mother when she welcomed her only daughter, Denise. Every day with her family she displayed true love, fierce loyalty and devotion. It goes without saying, she was the 'bestest' and toughest mother and then Nana that ever was. She shared everything she had with her grandchildren, Andrew and Avery, and made an effort everyday possible to spend time with them. She enjoyed watching their sports, picking them up from the bus stop and just plain spoiling them. She spent her days knitting, gardening, and watching sports - really doing whatever she wanted - because she could! With a small family in the U.S., it was the kindness and warm welcome from friends who helped our Nana make a life. Deb and her family are eternally grateful to those who welcomed her to their families and traditions, especially Elaine King and her family who helped Nana feel a part of something big and special. Deb leaves behind her daughter, Denise Corbett; son-in-law, Harold L. Tucker III; as well as the true loves of her life, her grandchildren, Andrew and Avery Tucker, all of Westbrook. Our family would like to thank the staff at Maine Center for Cancer Medicine and Maine Medical Center, especially Dr. Mark Wrona for the wonderful care and guidance he gave our sweet Nana in her last weeks. A prayer service will be held at Prides Corner Church in Westbrook on Wednesday, Oct. 29, at 6:30 p.m. Online condolences may be expressed at blaisandhayfuneralhome.com . Janet Corbett
