After more than 40 years of practice, Dr. Phyllis Corbitt is retiring from her medical practice in Wilmore.
The community held a retirement party in her honor today. It was the second party they’ve held because so many people attended the first one that they weren’t all able to see Dr. Corbitt.
89-year-old Corbitt served as a medical missionary in Africa.
People told ABC 36 at the party today that Corbitt has been a hero, saint and a legend in their town.
