Obituary for Sally J. Corrigan

January 27, 1927 - July 8, 2020
Pelham Manor, New York | Age 93


Sally Jane Corrigan of Pelham Manor, New York passed away on July 8th, 2020. She was 93 years old, born in Mt. Vernon, New York to James and Anne Doran. She was the youngest of three children, two predeceased; Mary and James Doran. She was raised in Pelham and attended local schools. After graduation from Pelham Memorial High School, Sally graduated from The Mount Vernon Hospital School of Nursing and became a Registered Nurse. Her husband, Edward G. Corrigan was overseas for two and a half years with the United States Army Air Force during World War II. It was on his return that Edward married his sweetheart, Sally and they lived at their Third Avenue residence in Pelham raising a loving family of three girls.
Sally worked for Our Lady of Perpetual Help Grammar School as School Nurse and then Lawrence Hospital in Bronxville, New York until her retirement.

Sally Jane was a kind, gentle soul who loved her family and her Irish heritage. She was deeply patriotic and especially loved the Pelham Memorial Day Parade. She always looked forward to an outdoor barbecue or party with relatives and friends. She was caring, devoted and loved by all that knew her. Perhaps, her greatest attribute was her gleeful laugh that always enchanted those in her presence.

She will be sorely missed by her three daughters, Anne Corrigan, Margaret Stapleton, Kathleen Cleary, six grandchildren, John Stapleton, Katherine Robison, William Stapleton, Claire Bollerman, Richard Cleary, Meaghan Cleary, and two great-grandchildren, Eleanor (Princess) Robison and Ryan Stapleton.

A Catholic Mass will be held at Our Lady of Perpetual Help, 559 Pelham Manor Road, Pelham Manor on Wednesday, July 15th at 10:00AM. She will be buried along side her husband, Edward, at Long Island National Cemetery in Farmingdale, Long Island.
