The family of Cora Macohonic (nee Demers) express their deep sadness of her passing on Thursday, May 28, 2020.
Cora worked for a few years at the hospital in Killam, AB before she was married. After moving from Camrose and settling down in Calgary, she spent many years working at senior nursing homes while raising her family. Family meant everything to Cora. She loved a full home, surrounded by friends and family, sharing her love and passion through food, whether it was baking pastries or a home cooked meal for her loved ones. Cora loved to listen to music and was known to crank up her stereo often, talking on the phone, and also watching her favorite soap Y&R. She also adored her dog Princess, and loved spending time with her.
Cora will be lovingly remembered by her three children; Shawna (Cam), Warren, Alana; grandchildren Tyler, Ryan; stepson Wayne (Connie) Hajdasz and his family; her brother Ed Demers, as well as many relatives and friends. Cora was predeceased by her husband Patrick in 2017, parents Ann (2005) and Esmond (1968), and brother Harvey (1974).
