Born in Stamford, Connecticut on February 5th, 1966

Departed on May 1st, 2020 and resided in Denver, Colorado

    Kathleen (Tuny) Cory, 54, died in Denver, Colorado on Friday, May 1 2020. The cause was heart failure.  Born on February 5, 1966 in Stamford, CT to Donald J. Cory and Gayle O. Cory, she graduated from Radnor High School, in Wayne, PA, and subsequently took a Bachelor of Arts in Communications degree from nearby Villanova University. For much of her adult life Tuny worked in the travel industry, beginning with Rosenbluth Travel, in suburban Philadelphia, and later at agencies in Orlando and Denver. In addition to travel, cooking was among her many passions. She was particularly skilled at baking and maintained a tradition sending Christmas cookies to her seven siblings. Predeceased by her parents, she is survived by siblings Donald J. Cory, Jr., of American Falls, ID; Deborah Cory-Slechta, of Rochester, NY; Judith Cory, of Hummelstown, PA; James Cory, of Philadelphia; Richard Cory, of Elverson, PA; Peter Cory of Hanover, PA and Stephen Cory, of Englewood, CO, in addition to nieces Kara Keitt, Kourtney Keitt and Amy Slechta and nephews Christopher Slechta and Kevin Cory. In spite of serious health difficulties in her teens, she cultivated a positive attitude throughout her life and her spirited presence will not soon be forgotten by her family and her many friends. Memorial services on her behalf are forthcoming in late summer at two locations, suburban Philadelphia and Denver. In lieu of flowers, we would request donations to a charity in her name.

    I am so sorry this world lost such a warm, generous soul. I worked with her many years ago in PA, and am so saddened by the loss. She was so loved.

    Tuny was a whirlwind of smiles and happiness to those of us lucky enough to have been in her life’s path. She believed in the joy of life, for herself and for all of us, and always strove to live in the light. She filled her life with experiences, laughter, and friends. I’ve never met a person with more love to give to so many people. To quote her, from something she wrote: “With love, we have arrived. The destination is always the same. We are headed toward love, while simultaneously coming from love. There is no other energy more powerful than love.” I’ll miss her so very much.
