Euleen (Ellison) Cory

January 8, 1943 ~ January 14, 2022 (age 79)


Euleen Cory, 79, of West Lafayette, passed away Friday, January 14, 2022, at Franciscan Health East Hospital.  She was born January 8, 1943, in Tazwell, TN to John and Minnie (Fultz) Ellison.  She had been a graduate of Dayton High School.  On September 17, 1961, she married the love of her life, Allan R. Cory.  He preceded her in death on July 2, 2019.

Euleen was a member of the First Christian Church in Lafayette where she was a member of the Women’s Circle. She enjoyed being a crossing guard with the Lafayette School Corporation. Euleen cherished the time spent with her family. When there was a passing of a family member or friend, she was always the first one there with groceries.

Euleen is survived by her children, Mark (Krista) Cory of Minot, ND, Clark Cory of West Lafayette, Brenda Cory of Lafayette, and Linda (Donald) Harris of Kentland; brother, C.A. Ellison of Dayton; sister Loretta (Roland) Vick of Lafayette; grandchildren, Breanna (Daniel) Harr, Kevin Cory, and Payne Cory Harris; four great grandchildren; and many nieces, and nephews.

She was preceded in death by her husband, Allan; parents; and a brother, Evans Ellison.

Visitation will be held on Wednesday, January 19, 2022, from 12pm until the time of the service at 2pm at Genda Funeral Home Mulberry Chapel.  Pastor Connie Schultz and Rev. Andrew Guthrie will officiate.  Burial will follow at Fair Haven Cemetery.

Because Euleen was very generous to many charitable organizations, in lieu of floral arrangements, memorial donations are requested to the First Christian Church Women’s Circle 329 N. 6th St, Lafayette, IN 47901.

The family would like to also extend a special thank you to Jennifer, Monica, and Kat at Franciscan Health for their loving care during Euleen’s short illness.
