Cora Lee was a kind soul, loved babies and taking care of friends that needed a hand, they knew they could count on her to be there for them. She was very quick witted and fun to be around. If you knew her you loved her, she was that type of person. Her house was the house the kids wanted to be at after school, always something neat in the front window on Gore for birthdays and holidays. She was always with Terry and Darry with their wrestling tournaments at Eisenhower High School and always had her big black van full of kids traveling to and from wrestling meets.

She was very proud to say she was one of the Taylor Girls!
