Cora Irene Stewart Delaney
September 8, 2014
CORA IRENE "TINY" STEWART DELANEY was born January 8, 1934 to the late Lundy & Rosa Mae Boone both of Emporia, Virginia.
Momma Cora attended school in Emporia, VA and the District of Columbia and later met and married Eugene Stewart. Of that union came five children: Michael & Rosa (who preceded her in death), Carolyn, Melvin and Sharon. Later in 1981, Momma Cora met and married Converse Edward Delaney.
Momma Cora was one fine cook! Anyone ever having dinner at her home would also agree. She worked at the Marcell Nursing Home & Senior Care Facility for over 30 years. Momma Cora was also a recipient of the Appreciation Awarded for her donations to the United Negro College Fund.
She was a kind and gentle soul; to know her was to love her – and that is how she got the name "Tiny" Ma Stewart.
Momma Cora taught the Bible to many and she always said "God knows our strength and He will help us make it through any adversity." Momma loved animals, especially her German Shepherd and Doberman "Demon" and "Duchess". Momma Cora is survived by three children, nine grandchildren, four great grandchildren, her lifetime special friend Earl Allen, and a host of other relatives and friends.
