Mrs Ann L. Cory
November 24, 1930 – September 2, 2018
Our Mom, Ann Lorraine Cory died peacefully on the afternoon of Sunday September 2, 2018 at the age of 87. For the last few months she resided at Olivenhain Guest Home with her husband of 70 years, Leonard Cory, and was surrounded by family and friends. Ann was born on November 24, 1930 in St. Louis, MO to Katherine and Paul Hammert. When she was 5 years old her mother and stepfather, Alois Kirsch, moved the family to Pacific Beach, California then to Cardiff, California where she grew up with her siblings Nancy (deceased) and Al (deceased). She lived in Encinitas most of her life. Ann was a loving and devoted Wife, Mother, Grandmother and Aunt. She was talented in many ways from being a great cook, to beautifully decorating the windows of the family's clothing stores, Cory Brothers Men's Clothing(later named Leonard's Traditions). Ann took up selling a fantastic skin care line of cosmetics, and made this business her own.
Ann had a glow when you'd see her, and people naturally gravitated towards her. Her friendships were far reaching and she would help out at any given time if she could. Her warmth, generosity, kindness, and laughter will be deeply missed.
Mom taught us to be true to ourselves, to be strong, and love unconditionally. She will be greatly missed, and will remain everlasting in our hearts. Ann is survived by her loving husband Leonard; daughter Linda (Robert) Roskovicks of Henderson, Nevada; son Larry (David Cutler) of Cathedral City, California; daughter (deceased) Laurie (John) Bianchi of Carlsbad, California; daughter Lynette Cory of Carlsbad, California; Granddaughter Nicole (Jospeh) Mareno of Atlanta, Georgia; and Grandson Anthony Bianchi of Leucadia, California. A private graveside service will be held at Eternal Hills Memorial Park in Oceanside, California. Kindly; Donations to Olivenhain Guest Home and Abreva Hospice for skilled nursing, care and kindness.
