Our mom, Roberta K. Korona, 85, passed away February 13, 2020 with family at her side. She fell at home, January 18th, and did not recover from her injuries. She passed peacefully into the arms of Jesus at 7:28 AM.
Mom was born May 6, 1934 in Elkton, Maryland to the late Robert C. Kennedy and Madalynn B. Kennedy.
Mom lived her life to the utmost fullest in the Milford/Magnolia Delaware area. She started a civil service job at Dover Airforce Base where she met and married John J. Korona, JR on February 21, 1966.
Mom’s greatest love was quilting. She has been a member of the Milford Senior Center quilting club most of her life and made many lifelong friends.
Mom also loved to read. She always put her initial “K” inside the front cover of the books she read so she wouldn’t read the same one again.
Mom was a longtime member of the Delaware State Police Citizen’s Police Academy. She was very active in neighborhood crime prevention…and the neighborhood knew it!
Mom was preceded in death by her husband, John J. Korona, JR, her parents, and her two siblings, Nina Jo Watson and Richard Kennedy. Mom is survived by her four sons, Kenny W. Collins (Cindy), Jamie R. Korona (Angie), John J. Korona, III (Marlena), and Eric S. Korona. She was blessed with multiple grandchildren, great-grandchildren, and great-great grandchildren.
Services were in care of Rogers Funeral Home on Saturday, February 15, 2020.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in her name to the Milford Senior Center.
