Glidden, Coralynn "Corky" 6/26/1940 - 2/15/2023 Bangor Coralynn (Corky) E. Glidden, 82, passed away on February 15th 2023 at Vineyard Assisted Living Facility. Corky was born in Lawton, MI on June 26th, 1940 to Glen and Margaret Lowman. She graduated from Lawton High School and in 1960 she was crowned Miss Lawton She later graduated from Western Michigan University with a degree in Teaching. She met the love of her life, Terry S Glidden on a blind date in the summer of 1960. Terry and Corky were married on August 13th, 1961. Corky and Terry first lived in Portage, MI while Terry taught and was the Head football coach at Climax Scotts. They eventually called Bangor home for 52 years when Terry accepted the Head football and teaching position. After raising their three children Corky started teaching for over 20 years in the Bangor School System. There she taught kindergarten and started the Young 5's program. Corky loved to dress and decorate for every Holiday Season and loved to have her nails match the particular outfit she had on that day. She and Terry never missed any of their kids or grandkids' sporting events. The family would like to recognize the lifetime friendship with the Ray and Mary Larned family. I believe that our parents' friendship instilled valuable lifetime lessons that carry on today. In 2002 Corky was given the gift of life. Her angel on earth (and dear cousin), Marsha Molter, donated one of her kidneys to Corky. This generous gift allowed Corky to live life to the fullest. Her miracle kidney was still going strong when she passed. The family wishes to thank Marcia for giving our family more time with our beloved mother. Corky was preceded in death by her parents, Glen and Margaret Lowman, daughter Tiffany, son Corbin and husband Terry. She is survived by her son Trevor Glidden of Lawton, daughter in-law Kim Glidden of Richland; brother Robert Lowman (Mary Sue) of Ludington, MI and sister Patricia Rowley (John) in Casa Grande, AZ; and four grandkids Breanna, Sammy, Fia, and Aydin. A celebration of Corky's life will be held Saturday, May 6th, 2023, at 11am until the Memorial Service at 12pm at The Simpson United Methodist Church located at 507 Joy St in Bangor, MI. The Glidden family is being cared for by the D.L. Miller Funeral Home, 258 West Monroe Street, Bangor, MI.
