Obituary of Dorothy C. Corrigan

Dorothy C. Corrigan of West Bloomfield: December 24, 2020 at age 89. Predeceased by beloved husband, Michael in 2007, her parents Eugene and Caroline Sauer, sister Rosemary Frost/Linder, brothers Robert Glaser, Carl and John Sauer and her cousins of the Derleth family. She is survived by her children Richard (Elizabeth), Daniel (Maryann McManus), Colleen (Robert Ligenza) and grandson Alexander Ligenza, brothers Donald (Gloria), Eugene (Abby) Sauer, numerous nieces and nephews of the Sauer clan, cousins of the Derleth's of Chili Avenue. Dorothy was a wonderful wife, mother, grandmother, sister-in-law, aunt and cousin. Christmas was her holiday. She beautifully decorated her home with at least 3 Christmas trees and it looked grand. She hosted the West Bloomfield Historical Society Christmas party for a few years. So it was only natural that she died on Christmas Eve. You were always welcome in her house and she was genuinely glad to see you. She looked forward to phone calls from her brothers catching up. She was the historian for the family. She was the matriarch. She loved her furry babies. When they were adopted by her, they won the Animal lottery. Special thanks for her doctors, especially Dr. Melissa Schiff. Their exceptional care and concern kept her going in 2020. Friends may call Tuesday, December 29th, 2020 from 3-6:30 pm at the Merton H. Kays Funeral Home, Inc. 59 Monroe Street, Honeoye Falls, NY. Private family Service will be held on Wednesday. Burial, Pine Hill Cemetery, Rush.
