Great sister-friend, great energy, great laughs (she was very very funny!), great letters (they were keepers) and just a great gift to have had her path cross mine in the sweet days we shared at Chi Omega in the 70's.
Heaven just got funnier, for sure :)

To the Spiro family.
My heart broke at the news of Cory's passing. Cory was a childhood friend on Staten Island as I was fortunate to have worked for her Grandfather and became like family. So many great memories working for and with the Spiro.
I also worked for American Sirlines and was so happy to reconnect with Cory later in our careers. My wife, also with American flew the Rome flight with Cory last summer.
Cory was truly a great lady and will be sorely missed.
Rest In Peace my dear friend.

When God lets special angels and people cross our paths in life, you know it immediately! Sweet CoryLee was one of those people. I have been privileged and blessed to have called her friend and to have thoroughly and selfishly enjoyed every morsel of time with her when we flew together. She always spoke about her family with love and she displayed that love to everyone who knew her. My face always hurt from laughing because her humor was only one of her amazing traits. She was the consummate professional when working. She loved what she did and did it with aplomb. Sadly that luster is gone from flying - she is gone but her brilliant light shines on. She will be missed but never forgotten. You don't forget angels especially when they touch you before they even get their wings. We will all look to the sky and see you Cory. Thank you for blessing me with your friendship and love dear heart. My sympathy and love to your mom and family. "Your Dix" Pixie Healy

Susan Shepard-Howell on Mar 13, 2018

My sincerest condolences to the Spiro family. Cory was a delight to work with. What I liked most about Cory was, if one looks up the definition of wanderlust in the dictionary, there is a photograph of Cory next to the meaning. Her passion for travel was unsurpassed. She will be sorely missed.

"Our concern for the loss of our friends is not always from a sense of their worth, but rather of our own need of them and that we have lost some who had a good opinion of us."
-Francois de la Rochefoucauld

"Painful though parting be, I bow to you as I see you off to distant clouds."
-Emperor Saga

Please accept my condolences. Cory was an exceptional person. I met her flying JFK to Paris. She always inspired me with her grit, courage, and zest for life. We had some amazing times drinking wine and enjoying Paris. I always felt blessed to fly with her and be able to tag a long to the best restaurants. She was such a fixture it is difficult to realize we shall never cross paths here on earth again. Wishing her family courage and peace.

Pam Park on Mar 13, 2018

I had the pleasure of flying with Cory in new york. The last time I saw her she had a big smile - she was on her way to Rome. She was always doing something fun and creative and showed so much courage during her cancer battle. I will always be inspired by her.
