Cora was born May 5, 1937, to her parents, John and Unie Hall. Cora was the baby of 7 children. Cora was raised in Logansport, Louisiana. She attended and graduated from Logansport High School in 1955. Cora married Glenn Nutt in 1955. They had two children - the late David Nutt and wife Debbie and the late Cynthia Lawson. After the passing of her late husband Glenn, Cora remarried Bobby H. Wilburn in 1987 and gained three more children - the late Mike Wilburn and wife Janet, the late Steve Wilburn, and Yolanda Davis and husband Lynn. Cora worked at Community Bank of Louisiana, where she retired as vice president after 30 years. Cora enjoyed traveling, fishing, gardening, sewing, cooking, and most of all being “MAMMAW” to her grand and great grandchildren. The highlight of her week was knowing her family would gather for Sunday lunch that she had prepared each week, because family was her greatest gift. Anyone that ever walked into her house was always asked if they were hungry, because she was always ready to cook for them. She was “MAMMAW” to everyone. Cora was a proud member of Cool Springs Primitive Baptist Church.

She is survived by her sister, Nancy Boyd of Logansport, Louisiana; daughter-in-law, Debbie Nutt of Prague, Oklahoma; daughter, Yolanda Davis and husband Lynn of Center; and daughter-in-law, Janet Wilburn of Center; grandchildren, Elizabeth Wallis of Prague, Oklahoma, Misty Wilburn of Center, Cody Nutt and wife Britta of Prague, Oklahoma, Brittany Foster and husband Matt of Center, Wade Lawson and wife Kaitlin of Joaquin, Micah Youngblood of Center, Matt Lawson and wife Monica of Joaquin; and Ryan Wilburn and wife Mallory of Shelbyville; great grandchildren, Victoria, Amelia, Colten, Lyla, Roman, Ivy, June Caroline, Georgia Kate, Guner, Rance, Lillie, Rylinn, and Nash; sister-in-law and brothers-in-law, Price Wilburn of Center, Judy Scarborough of Huxley, Barbara Wilburn of Orange, Faye Hall of Logansport, Louisiana, and Tula Mae Hall of Shreveport, Louisiana; and a host of nieces and nephews.
