Cora Isabel (Monroe) Kammerer, the daughter of Oba Eugene Monroe and Ollie Bessie (Funderburk) Monroe, was born September 18, 1934 in Franklin Co., Texas. She joined the United States Marine Corps in 1953, during the Korean War and served two years. She was united in marriage to Roger E. Kammerer on July 17, 1955 in Yuma, Arizona and they celebrated 52 years together. She lived in Swansboro. North Carolina for 17 years and moved with her husband to Primghar, Iowa in 1980. She was a floral designer for over 30 years and worked for many years at Paradox Florist in Sanborn, Iowa. Cora passed away on Wednesday, May 28, 2008 at Prairie View in Sanborn, Iowa.
She was a member of the United Church in Primghar and a life member of the Women Marine Association. She was a loving mother, wonderful cook, seamstress, golfer and avid reader. She laughed often, loved life and was a mean scrabble player. She also enjoyed her Texas roots and her Native American heritage and was extremely proud of having served in the Marine Corps.
