Obituary~ Mina Cory

Long time Southampton Shores resident Mina Cory has passed away.

Deepest sympathy to her family.

Mina Cory

Sept. 29, 1911 - July 14, 2012
    Mina Margaretha Haug Cory, a former Southampton Hospital volunteer who celebrated her 100th birthday last fall, died on Saturday at the Hamptons Center for Rehabilitation and Nursing in Southampton.
    She was born on Sept. 29, 1911, in the Yorkville section of Manhattan, a daughter of Johann Georg Haug and the former Anna Bertha Kullen. Following high school, she worked with her father, a carriage harness maker, at his shop on East 75th Street.
    It was there she met the Rev. David Munroe Cory, who became her husband. The couple moved to Brooklyn. While raising children, she worked alongside her husband and did volunteer work for the Industrial Home for the Blind and for Queens Hospital.
    Later, she worked in the shareholder relations department at AT&T, and then became head of the American Sugar Company’s communications center. She went on to work for the New York City Convention and Visitors Bureau until the age of 85. In 1996 she moved permanently to a house in North Sea that her family had purchased in 1941.
    She spent five years volunteering at Southampton Hospital. Mrs. Cory enjoyed cooking, especially German fare, as well as the opera and travel.
    She is survived by a sister, Dr. Elsie Haug of Chicago, and three children, Mina Kahofer of Wainscott, Daniel Cory of Brooklyn, and John Cory of Mystic, Conn. Nine grandchildren, 11 great-grandchildren, and 2 great-great-grandchildren also survive.

***A Memorial Service will take place at 2 p.m. on Aug. 18 at the Old Whalers Church in Sag Harbor.

The family has suggested donations  to Southampton Hospital, 240 Meeting House Lane, Southampton 11968, or to the Sag Harbor Whaling Museum.
