In the early 60’s Cora attended Beauty School in Las Cruces, NM and eventually opened her own beauty salon in Hurley, The Hurley Beauty Shop of which she retired from. She always enjoyed her family and clients visiting her and took pride in her ownership. After her husband passed away and her family was all in Mesa, AZ she also moved to be close to them. Once in Arizona, Cora enjoyed her weekly trips to the mall and going out to eat. She always enjoyed joking and playing with her great grandchildren and going to see them at school events. Cora loved to cook and enjoyed making meals for her family. Without doubt, Cora will be missed by her many friends and family. Her laugh and sense of humor will never be forgotten. As a family it was a joy to spend 86 years with her and will cherish many memories. Cora’s wishes were to be cremated and there will be no services. Hospice of the Valley and her many nurses provide amazing care for Cora.
