Obituary of Elizabeth M. Korba
Elizabeth "Liz" Korba (nee Schultz), age 60, of Glassboro passed away Thursday, August 29, 2019 after a very brave fight with cancer.
Born in Haverford, she was the daughter of the late Norman and Elizabeth Schultz of Yeadon.
Liz was married in November 1993.
She was a graduate of Archbishop Prendergast High School (1977), and Villanova University (Honors Program), Magna Cum Laude, Dean's Award (1981). She also received an M.A in Educational Administration in 1986 at Villanova. She spent her early years teaching 2nd grade at Saint Eugene in Primos and then at Holy Spirit Elementary School in Sharon Hill. She later went on to be the Director of Learning at Britannica Learning Center in Narbeth followed by many years working as a Pastoral Associate at Blessed Virgin Mary Parish in Darby PA.
After living in Switzerland for a couple of years in the 1990s she developed an appreciation for the problems faced by people new to a country. She then decided to dedicate her life's work to ESL, and taught in various programs within South Jersey. She also was a very active volunteer at the Brandywine Museum in Chadds Ford and was very involved in their "critter" program. Liz's talents for entertaining, gardening, sewing, and writing have given all those who knew her memories they will forever cherish.
