COND, Cora


August 8, 1925 to December 2, 2021 ~ It is with great sadness that we mourn the passing of Cora Cond Thursday, December 2, 2021 at A.R.C.H., in her 97th year.

She is predeceased by her beloved husband Glen, her sister Roberta, and her daughter-in-law Judy. She will be deeply missed by her children, Sandie, Lynn, ( late Judy) and Larry (Kerrie); her grandchildren, Sara (Brent), Jen (Andy), Abbey (Jonas), Lee (Sara), Gavin (Jenn), Jesse (Taryn), Joe (Yvonne), Seth (Shannon), Caleb (Michelle), Michael (Lynaya) and Amanda (Rob); her great grandchildren, Ellie, Grant, Riley, Austin, Eli, Maggie, Owen, Georgia, Isla, Lucy, LeRoy, Taylor, Justin, Cole, Ty, Blake, Richard, Marc and Macy; her great, great grandchildren, Jaxton, Cory, and Jayla Cora.

She will be missed by so many whose lives she touched with genuine joy and caring in the community she loved.

She was above all, a mother and grandmother but also, an avid knitter, a great supporter of family sports (many know her from the bleachers at football games basketball and baseball games, and hockey arenas), and a devoted member of Central United Church for 70 years. She was also the first computer operator where she worked in the office of Virene’s Department store.

She fostered her roots to Manitoulin Island where she was born and she ensured her family’s connection to that home. She is also mourned by her 10 loving nieces and nephews and all her extended family there.

Her greatest gift to us all is her love that created a strong sense of family, and the roots that she laid down to secure it.

She will be missed but well remembered.

Many thanks to the staff at A.R.C.H., and the Sault Area Hospital, and Doctors Wilson and Apostle, for the gentle caring, compassion, and friendship offered to Cora and her children.
