     Mrs. Corder, a homemaker, was born March 27, 1896, near Greenwood, Mo., to Jehile and Nellie Nikirk Belcher.  She lived in Missouri where she lived in Warsaw, then in West Line.  In 1914 she moved back to Greenwood.
     She married Clarence L. Corder on on Jan. 11, 1916, at Harrisonville, Mo.  They moved to New Lancaster, Kan., living there and around LaCygne, Kan., and at Drexel, Mo., until 1944.
     They settled in the Arena Valley area near Wilder where they farmed.  She was active in the Arena Valley Circle, and also helped with 4-H work.  She joined the Sterry Memorial Presbyterian Church, Roswell, in 1946, and had taught a Sunday school class there for several years.  She lost her sight in 1956, but continued all activities possible.  Her husband died in January of 1971.
     She then sold the farm and moved to Homedale to be near a daughter.  In 1976 she moved to Garden Valley to be near her son and daughters.  In 1983 she became unable to care for herself, and moved to Crouch to live with her daughters.
     She was always willing to help her neighbors and friends.
     She is survived by a son, Estel "Bud" Corder of Boise; a son and daughter-in-law, Bob and Alice Corder of Garden Valley; two daughters, Mary Conn and Ellen Rose, both of Crouch; three sisters, Mrs. Vyna Kennedy of Chilhowee, Mo., Mrs. Elizabeth Duncan of Richmond, Kan., and Mrs. Martha Gillogly of West Drexel, Mo.; nine grandchildren; 23 great-grandchildren; and numerous nieces and nephews.
