Burgess; Cora Ellen, age 81, of Liverpool, formerly of South West Port Mouton, Queens County, passed away peacefully in Queens General Hospital, Liverpool on Thursday, June 24, 2022.
Born in Central Port Mouton, Cora was a daughter of the late Walter and Mildred (Broome) Huphman.
Cora spent her younger years working at White Point Lodge in the housekeeping department before spending most of her working years at the Nickerson Fish Plant and C.W. McLeod Fisheries in Port Mouton. Cora was a very colorful person, smart, comical, and strongly willed and opinionated (but in a good way). She enjoyed knitting, bingo, smoking her cigarettes and the occasional drink. Cora was an amazing cook and baker. She was always the life of the party and will be greatly missed by all who knew her.
Cora is survived by her daughter, Corrine Wolfe of Liverpool; grandchildren, Theresa, Charles, Angel and Kyle; great grandchildren, Brianna, Brooke, Antonio, Teyanna, Christopher, Tyra, and Carter; great great grandson, Wesley.
Besides her parents, Cora was predeceased by her loving husband, Charles Burgess, loving companion, Miles Williams; grandson, Christopher; sisters, Sandra in infancy and Mildred; brother, Bernard.
A graveside service will be held on Wednesday, June 29, 2022 at 11:00 a.m., from South West Port Mouton Community Cemetery. Reverend Judy Cross officiating.

Think of her with a smile …
Dear Corrine and all the grandchildren and great grandchildren, So sorry to hear of
Aunt Ellen’s passing She sure was fun to
be around and I usually never saw her
without my Uncle Miles and Corky their
furbaby (of course).They took that pooch
wherever they went. She always had this
child like spirit about her and loved being at
the many family dinners at my nanny Carol’s
and grampy Lewis.She and Uncle Miles would usually end up at the campground for
a surprise visit with Corky. I’ll never forget the first time we went to visit them when they lived in Port Mouton.She had an old record player and she played” By the Rivers
Of Babylon” by Boney M. I think that’s where
and when I fell in love with the band.I remember her catch phrase being ,”You
got that some kinda right” and always with
her distinct laugh at the end of the phrase .
So glad to have had her as part of our family.
May God give you comfort during this difficult time Love Linda Stephen Preston and Savanna Williams
