Cora Adeline Matheson

Cora Adeline Matheson, 93, of Crane Hill, entered into rest on Thursday, March 5, 2020 at her home.

Ms. Matheson was born on August 26, 1926 in Springfield, Illinois. Cora was a proud military wife who helped support the beginning of the Blue Angels, for whom her husband, LeRoy, was a pilot. She was also a member of the Arley Women's Club, and she and her husband, LaVerne, were instrumental in forming the Smith Lake Advocacy Group.  She was a family oriented, sweet, loving person who was known for her angelic smile and contagious laugh.

Cora Adeline Matheson, whom we mourn, has entered into the peace of eternal life. She still lives on in the acts of goodness she performed and in the hearts of those who cherish her memory. May the memory of her life abide amongst us as a loving benediction.

The family will have a memorial service at a later time.
