Leslie Ward Corbett’s mother is very sick, and in her sickness had a dying wish. She wanted a special song to be played at her funeral. Seems a simple enough wish, but her family felt it wasn’t enough. Leslie and her family wanted to do something for her mom while she was still alive.
Corbett’s mom always loved Sigma Chi’s serenade “Sweetheart of Sigma Chi.” Seeing as how they’re connected to the fraternity, Leslie’s brother and nephew, both Sigma Chis, organized the University of Utah chapter to serenade her mom. Active members and alumni dressed up, and came to the house to put on a private performance, before each of them gave her a white rose.
Try not to cry.
My mom, who is very ill, wanted nothing more than to hear the song Sweetheart of Sigma Chi. My brother and nephew, who are Sigma Chi's surprised her with this. Thank you to the gentlemen of Sigma Chi for giving all of us a memory we will never forget
