Coralyn Louise Turner-Hillyer
Conneaut- Coralyn Louise Turner-Hillyer, 16, our little Angel gained her heavenly wings on Friday, January 10, 2020.
Cora was born in Ashtabula on October 14, 2003 the daughter of Stephanie Turner and Derek Hillyer.
Cora was happy when listening to music, sounds and watching lights. She was all smiles while in the water. Cora loved going on family trips, she especially loved them when she got to visit a different water park or go to the beach. Cora loved her family, including her pesky siblings, especially when they sang and read to her. Halloween was a special time for her and her family, she was always included, with special costumes and a matching "ride."
Cora is survived by her mother, Stephanie Jacobs; father, Derek Hillyer; siblings, Brendan Turner, Natalie Walker, Alexia Jacobs and Jasmine Hillyer; maternal grandparents, Debi and Joe Zappitelli; paternal grandparents, Carol Hillyer (Paul Hoover) and Rick Hillyer; and many other special family members.

There were times when I would sing to Cora and I would get a little smile. She showed me how to live with the small things in life. I will miss God's gift that he gave us for a while. Her wings will let her soar
