  3. I met Pat in the late 70″s when her son, Perry, and my daughter, Susan, were on the Dads Club Swim Team together. I was his stroke coach and Pat allowed many others as well to receive instruction from me in her back yard pool. I enjoyed a close friendship with her for many years, but after Perry’s death we lost touch. I have many fond memories of those years as we traveled all over country with our swimmers. My heartfelt condolences go to her loved ones.

  4. It is so hard to believe that she is no longer here. We traveled a journey together over many years through grief and laughter; new adventure and old patterns; professional partners and sharing the road. She touched my life in many ways and I shall always cherish the time together.

  7. I met her over 20 years ago, she helped me come from a very dark time to a time of peace and happiness. She has always gone further than she ever had too to help people. She will never be forgotten and I thank God that he lent her to me this short while.

  8. I met Dr. Corke in 1992 right after my divorce. She was a straight shooter and I truly trusted her. The world has lost a competent psychiatrist but more than that a wonderful, loving human being.

  10. Dr. Corke was a wonderful doctor who cared for her patients. She helped me very much during some very hard times in my life. I was blessed to have her in my life when I needed her the most. She was very caring doctor and did what she could for her patients. My heart goes out to her loved ones, but I know she is in a better place and will be reunited with her son, whom she missed very much. Fly high with the angels, Dr. Corke because you earned your angel wings.

  11. Sorry for my belated post. I only found out. My condolences to all whose lives were made better by Dr. Pat. She took my issues seriously, though they may have been trivial compared to others. I am grateful for her compassion, patience, and humor. I shared her love for animals as we enjoyed the local ducks that she fed every day. She is now reunited with her beloved son, and knowing that is a comfort.

  12. She helped me during a very traumatic time in my life I always felt I had to get better to show her the 2 months I spent with her wasnt a waste. She is responsible for my having 31 of sobriety. Looking back the attitude of feeling that I owed her so much she would have wanted me to just get better. When I check today she was gone. I was to embarrased to contact her before now. And now she is gone.
