Re: Obit: Lubinski, Cora (1892 - 1920)

Contact: Debbie Lubinski


Cora was my paternal grandmother who died at 28 years of age from sepsis (Steve Smith-her dad, Adeline Comstock-her mom, and Westley are some surnames I am familiar with on her side). I was told this was due to unsanitary conditions and complications during the birth of her fifth child Harold. Bobby-mentioned here-was my dad-Robert Lester Lubinski-born in 1917 and passed away in 1998 at 80 years of age. Her obituary here mentions she gave birth to 5 children but only mentions Virgil, Lilas, Bobby and Harold. This further states she was laid to rest in the Mentor Township Cemetery next to her 2 children. A cross reference with the cemetery listing only identifies Harold as being buried there. Cora's other child-a girl-I do believe named Viola is also buried there. It is written that she died from injuries she sustained when she fell from a "sewing" machine. Being an old farmgirl myself...the story was never clear as to what type of "sewing" used for sewing and mending or an actual farm implement. My dad was all of 2 years old when his mom died but still could recount early memories of her being a loving and caring mother. I regret never knowing her-except in word and cherish what additional information I have found here on this website. Thank you so much. Deborah Sue Lubinski
