Cora Lee was born November 22, 1935 in Yadkin County to Floyd Elmer and Goldie Miller Crissman. She was a member of Richmond Hill Baptist Church where she sang in the choir and served as the youth leader for many years, as well as assisting with providing meals for many occasions at the church. Her love for children was demonstrated as being considered a “second mom” to many, including her nieces, nephews, and grandchildren. Cora Lee often said people referred to her as a “blooming idiot” due to her love of flowers which she grew in her yard and shared with many neighbors and friends.

In addition to her parents, Cora Lee was preceded in death by her loving husband, Mitchell Montgomery Casstevens; her step father, Claude H. Hobson; infant great grandson, Cayden Austin Boehme; her siblings, Janice Moxley, Ross Crissman, and Jack Crissman; and a brother-in-law, Junior Hutchens. She is survived by a daughter, Pamela (John) Boehme; grandchildren Austin (Lara) Boehme, and Hunter (Melissa) Boehme; great grandchildren, Knox Austin Boehme, Xiomara Kelish Boehme, and Isaac Nolan Hall; two sisters, Frankie Hutchens and Kay (Wayne) Hayes; sisters-in-law, Linda Crissman and Eloise Crissman; brother-in-law, Bobby Moxley; and numerous special nieces and nephews. A funeral service will be conducted at 12:00PM, Wednesday, March 29, 2023 at Richmond Hill Baptist Church with Revs. Will Hamric, Luke Money, and Justin Crouse officiating. Burial will follow in the church cemetery. The family will receive friends one hour prior to the service at the church.

The family wishes to express their sincere appreciation to the staff of the Magnolia’s and Yadkin Nursing Center for the loving care given to Cora Lee.
