Patricia Browning Corbin

Patricia Rae Browning Corbin, 93, loving wife, proud mother, grandmother, great-great grandmother and aunt. A legacy and the Matriarch of the Corbin family of Yonges Island, South Carolina, entered eternal rest Friday, January 27, 2023.

From humble beginnings she bore seven amazing children and put roots in the heart of the Low Country. The family property aptly named “Corbin County” located in Yonges Island, South Carolina lines the banks of the Toogoodoo River.

It is the place of tradition, where siblings, children and grandchildren gather to celebrate birthdays, anniversaries, and holidays. It is the place that built us, by the woman that made us all and taught us how to love.

Patricia was born January 21, 1930 in Columbia, South Carolina, daughter of the late Russell Ray Browning, Sr. and the late Callis Marie Tanner Browning.

Patricia is preceded in death by her husband and the Patriarch of the Corbin family, James Edward Corbin Jr., they were married 61 years. Together they founded Metal Trades Inc., of Yonges Island, South Carolina in 1962. Today Metal Trades Inc. continues as a family owned and operated heavy steel fabrication and ship repair business. She is also preceded in death by her best friend and sister in law Martha “Marty” Corbin Banks, and her beloved grand daughter Melissa “Missy” Corbin Williams.

Patricia is survived by seven children: Eddie Corbin (Marvia), Rusty Corbin (Margaux), David Corbin (Winnie), Freddie Corbin (Patsy), Teddy Corbin (Lori), Patti Corbin, and Angie Corbin (Keith Rentz) all of Yonges Island, South Carolina; brother, Russell Ray “Buddy” Browning Jr (Shirley) of Columbia, South Carolina; sister, Betty Jean Miller of Mt. Pleasant; twenty-one grandchildren; thirty-one great-grandchildren; and six great-great grandchildren, five nieces, six nephews, five great nieces, three great nephews, six great-great nephews, and four great-great nieces.

There are not enough words to convey the impact she has made not only on her family but all who knew her. She will live on forever in each of us and she will be missed eternally.
