She was born on January 13, 1920 in Coshocton County to the late Forrest L. and Lola M. (Mohr) Conner. A graduate of Plainfield High School in 1939, she was a meticulous student. Cori was employed at the Lazarus Co., working as a checker, slip cover maker, pre-retail assistant, and import desk associate. A resident of Columbus the majority of her life, she moved to Delaware in 2005 to be near family.
Forever spiritual, she was a member of the North Broadway United Methodist Church and a former member of the O.E.S. Most loyal to every family member, she was honest and found the good in everyone. She was multi-generational and always found ways to be included in her family’s activities.
She was happiest outdoors, tending to her yard, lawn, and rose garden. She loved to read The Columbus Dispatch, even doing so to the very end. Though she did not have children of her own, Cori will be remembered for her love of children, as she was a mother to many.
