Obituary for Cora C. Henderson

Cora Henderson was born on September 23, 1939 to the late James and Louise Henderson. She entered into Eternal Rest on August 28, 2018 at Brookhaven Nursing Home in East Orange, N.J.

Cora grew up in the city of Newark and attended the Newark Public School System. She was always friendly and very outspoken. She retired from Blue Cross & Blue Shield after 25 plus years of service.

Cora loved arts & crafts and playing BINGO with her friends at 1 Court Street Senior Citizens building.

Cora enjoyed life to the fullest. She was a devoted mother, grandmother, great grandmother and an exceptional sister.

Let us remember the blissful and fruitful moments we all shared with our sweet Cora. Today, we honor her in celebrating her life.

“Gone but never forgotten”

Cora leaves to cherish her memories: her three K Boys, Kevin, Keith (girlfriend Brucine) and Kenny (wife Vivian); four siblings, Sally Brown, Charles Henderson, Elaine Ware and Venus Henderson; three grandchildren, Khaliah, Onjouleque and Yazim Monae; her seven great grandchildren; and a host of other family and friends. She was preceded in death by three siblings, the late Helen Ferguson, Barbara Harris and Frances Eutsey.
