Cory is the son of Joshawa Blackburn and Danielle Ellerman.
This precious little angel brought joy to so many people with his contagious smile and his happy soul. I am blessed to have been chosen to be his mommy. Cory has been a fighter from birth and was a true miracle.. His favorite show was puppy dog pals. He loved his taggies, sitting in his rocker, and playing with his toys, and everyone who adored him. Cory enjoyed attention from everyone, but of course, most of all he loved his mommy; his face would light up just hearing her voice.
In addition to his parents Cory is survived by; his big half- brother Joshawa Blackburn and a soon to be brother or sister; Grandparents, Brian and Christina Siewers; Maternal great grandparents, Bruce and Mary Litherland; Honorary grandma, Dianna Ellerman; and several aunts, uncles, and cousins.
Cory Joins his paternal grandfather Cory Blackburn, great uncle Brad Ellerman, and cousin Kyla McKinney in heaven.
