Jean C. Kory, 82, of Drums, passed away Thursday evening at her residence.

Born in Fort Edward, NY August 8, 1934, she was the daughter of the late George K. and Caroline A. (Milligan) Hayes.

Jeans passions were nature and the outdoors, travel, gardening, fishing, both deep sea and fresh water, music and last but not least her cats.  Jean loved life and enjoyed people.  She was a member of the DAR, Warren County NY Historical Society, and founding sponsor of the Flight 93 National Memorial.

Preceding her in death, in addition to her parents, were her husband of 60 years, Richard Kory, who passed on December 21, 2013, and a brother William G. Hayes.
