Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies. Proverbs 31: 10

Our beloved Mother Zora Lee King Williams Corey was born on July 14, 1934 to Mr. and Mrs. Willie King and Mr. Sylvester Ruff in Hancock County, Georgia. She went home to be with the Lord on January 19, 2021 at Candler Hospital.

After relocating to Savannah, from Sparta, GA, Mother Corey attended the public schools of Chatham County where she became a member of the Beach High School basketball team.

She met and married the late Mr. Isaac Williams Sr. This union produced four children. On October 3, 1961, she married Fred B. Corey. This union produced four children.

After accepting Jesus Christ as her personal savior, she joined the College Park Baptist Church. As an active member, Mother Corey sang in the Combined Choir where she once served as the president, and was also president of the Women Ministry. Mother Corey attended Sunday School, was a member of the Mother Board, and an original member of the Prayer Warrior Bible Study. Mother Corey truly loved her church, she worked hard, and would do anything to insure the Lord’s word was fulfilled.

During her employment, Mother Corey was employed at Williams Seafood, Savannah State University Snack Bar, and McCrory Stores.

Mother Corey was a nurturer. She had a heart of gold and would render love and help to anyone in need. She became an adopted mother to many. One of her favorite joys was to cook and feed others.  Mom felt that providing a meal to others was a true expression of love.

In addition to her husband Fred B. Corey, Mother Corey leaves to cherish her loving memory, her sons, Isaac Williams, Jr., Ronald (Irma) Williams, Sr., Randall (Shanta) Corey and Chris Corey; daughters; Jacquelyn (Larry) Bryan, JoAnne (John) Dickerson and Christal Corey; sixteen grandchildren, fourteen great grandchildren; daughter in law, Sheila Corey; brother in law, James (Dorothy) Corey; nieces and nephews she help  raise as children, Sara Pendegraph Williams, Melvin Johnson, Gwendolyn Jefferson and Doris Logan;  a host of other nieces, nephews, cousins and other relatives and a loving church family.
