Cora was a very proud Christian, she was pastor for 35 years at various churches. She had graduated from bible college. She was a member of Espyville Community Baptist. Cora also hosted a prayer line on Central Ohio Broadcasting “TV 39 Marion”. She enjoyed sewing, being a homemaker, and reading scripture. Cora also was a foster parent for many years.
