ROME CITY — Carol Rose "Rosie" Cory, 84, of Rome City, Indiana, passed away on Friday, June 2, 2023, at Orchard Pointe Nursing Home in Kendallville. She was born on Feb. 24, 1939, in Fort Wayne, Indiana, to Roy and Esther (Scoles) Shoppell. Carol enjoyed playing cards, crossword puzzles, mushroom hunting and traveling. She was a member of American Legion Post #381 Ladies Auxiliary and Color Guard. She also was a member of Mt. Pleasant Lutheran Church. A favorite pastime of hers was photographing sunsets.
