With deep sorrow we say goodbye to Cory, our loving wife, mother, daughter, grandmother, sister, cousin and friend. She left us in the arms of her loving husband Rob. She is survived by her children Jason (Erin), Steve and Kelsi (Jeff); grandchildren Jackson, Olivia and Rayna; siblings Scott, Drew, Laurie and Debbie, and her father Fred. She was predeceased by her mother Joyce, and Harris and Sonoko.
Cory grew up on Kingston Row and spent her summers with family at Hillside Beach. Fond childhood memories were spent camping with siblings, dancing in Go-Go boots with Brenda, and on the Tobermory with cousin Kathy.
Cory started her career working in care at St. Amant, leading her to become an educational assistant working with children she adored. She touched many hearts with her compassion and her wry sense of humour was shared by friend Eileen. Cory received countless letters of gratitude for her dedication and natural ability to care for those around her. Great friendships were also made in her time at First General Services.
She loved cooking for her friends and family, time at the cottage and socializing with her curling teams. Wonderful memories were made on her trips to Nelson, BC.
Cory’s greatest joy was being a mother and grandmother. She always took care of those around her and left a greater legacy than she will ever know. “I love you forever, even at hockey games”.
We thank the doctors, nurses and staff at all Cancer Care facilities and Riverview 3E. A special thanks to Drew and Karen, Brenda, Amma and nurse Chris. As per her wishes a private celebration of life will be held in summer. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Cancer Care Manitoba or charity of your choice.
