Corinne Ellen "Cory" Wesco, 69

Corinne Ellen "Cory" Wesco, 69, of rural Wabash, died at 12:29 p.m., Monday, June 13, 2022, at her home. 

She was born on Nov. 2, 1952, in Wabash, to John E. and Mary Ellen (Titus) Kerr.

Cory was a 1971 graduate of Wabash High School and a graduate of the Tucker School of Nursing, in Marion. She married James Wesco in Wabash on May 10, 1985, and built their dream cabin together.

Cory loved living in the country with their dogs. She loved her fur babies, and they will miss her very much. Cory's passion was being a nurse. She retired from Rolling Meadows but never stopped "nursing". All of her grandkids would call with every ailment, imaginary or not, because she gave the best advice. She loved spending time with her family more than anything.

She also enjoyed crocheting, fishing, and working crossword puzzles.

She is survived by her husband, James Wesco, daughter, Angie (Anthony) Discordia, five grandchildren, Emily Cooper, Malyssa Holley, Carol-Jane Holley, and Xander Rose, all of Wabash; and Zaac (Kennedy) Wesco of Alexandria; six great-grandchildren, Stevie, Morrison, Lily, Joey, Henry, and Zayn.

She was preceded in death by her parents, and her beloved sister and forever friend, Cathy Proffitt, who died in 2019. Their bond knows no end.

Per Cory's request there will be a Celebration of Life service at a later date. Grandstaff-Hentgen Funeral Service is in charge of the arrangements.
