Cora was your local dog groomer that started in her early years in Rocky Ford. Cora may have been the local dog whisperer. She had a way with them, and they definitely had her heart. Cora and her mother Julia Mackey were very involved in ceramics in their early years.  Her mother’s talent and her father 'Homer Mackey's' sense of humor made Cora a wondering and fun person.  Surviving her are her sisters, Jackie Brandt of Peasant Grove Utah, Sandy Martin of Mission Texas, Julia McDonald of Anchorage Alaska,  3 Nieces. 1 Nephew, 6 Great grandnieces and 3 Great grand nephews. All donations send to your local animal shelter. Services for Cora Mackey will be held at a later date.  In lieu of donating, Cora would have liked you to adopt a pet instead.
