Karen Lee Cory, age 65, passed away on the morning of July 29, 2020, following a year and a half long battle against cancer.

She was born on October 27, 1954, in Millington, TN to Bill and Virginia (Vetter) Harvey. Karen's passions included crafting, traveling, especially cruising and sitting at the kitchen table with her husband watching the cardinals at the bird feeders.

Above everything else was spending time with her family. Her kids and grandchildren were her world.

She is survived by her husband of 39 years, Charles Cory; her children Kaite Worthington and Robert Kyle Cory and his wife Stephanie; her grandchildren, Tristan and Oliver Worthington; her mother Virginia Harvey and her siblings Susan Sams, Betty Longo and David Harvey.

The funeral service celebrating Karen’s life will be Saturday, August 1, 2020, at 2 p.m. in the Chapel of Mckoon Funeral Home, 38 Jackson Street, in Newnan with Pastor Steve Clark officiating. The family will see friends prior to the service from 1 to 2 p.m. at the funeral home.
