On Monday March 12, 2018 Cory Ann Ehlers’ life was taken by the man who promised to love her forever. This is a tragic loss to her four children, parents, siblings and to everyone she ever met. She was an active parent at Brooklands Elementary School in Rochester Hills and a long-time staff member at Camp Ticonderoga in Troy. She was an amazing mother, daughter, sister, granddaughter, niece, cousin, friend and person. She sparkled.
Cory has 4 children, Joshua (23), Jonathon (14), Alyvia (9) and Nathan (8). They are now without parents and have long rough road ahead. This is something that no child should ever have to deal with.
Cory had an amazing heart, she loved everyone she met and would have given her last dollar to help anyone, even when she had nothing to give. Her positive attitude and openness allowed her to be instant best friends with everyone she met. When she hugged you, she really hugged you, a crushing hug that would make you feel loved and accepted, no matter what.
To quote our family friends John and Paul (Lennon and McCartney); “And in the end, the love you take is equal to the love you make.” Cory gave love to everyone, we were all given unconditional love every time we were in her presence.
Her children needed our help, and they still all have lots of healing to do with the loss of both their parents. With your donations, all funds went into creating a trust for Cory’s children, to help them with this tragic and senseless death of their mother. As of May 2018, we have raised over $14,000 for the Ehlers children’s’ trust fund. Thank you for helping us help them.
Thank you from Josh, Christy, Casey, Murphy, David and Thomas Richards Charity.
