I just read about her passing as I was thumbing through the Yankees Media Guide this morning. (I missed it when it happened on October 7, 2010. And, I missed the mention of it at this year’s Old Timers Day ceremonies.)
I had heard a rumor that she was living at Seabrook Village (in Tinton Falls, NJ) after Scooter’s passing.
She was 90-years old when she died. Still, it’s sad. She survived Phil by three years. I hope they were good for her.
I’ve read most of Carlo DeVito’s biography of Phil Rizzuto. And, Cora really seemed like a classy lady. No wonder why Phil loved her so much.
