Cora A. "Honeybunch" Reilly, 89, of Sunset Drive, a lifelong resident of Port Ewen, died while in the comforting presence of her family, Monday, September 30th, 2019 at Golden Hill Nursing and Rehabilitation Center.

She was born in Kingston, NY on March 11th, 1930, a daughter of the late Harry and Cora (Smith) Brandt.

Cora loved crafts, crocheting, and nurturing plants. She enjoyed traveling, especially to California, Arizona and Florida. Most of all she loved caretaking of all the little ones in her family and the neighborhood.

She is survived by her husband of 71 years Francis X.

Many nieces, nephews and cousins also survive.

She will be missed by Jaime's “Seeing-eye” dogs, Jonas and Doug.

In addition to her parents, she is predeceased by a daughter, Linda Marie Bunt (2004) and siblings, Donald Koeppen, Walter, Harry Jr., Ralph, Ronald, Jerry, Johnny and Doris Brandt, and Eileen Bushey.

Jaime and Family,
I was sad for all of you today when I read the obituary for Mrs. Reilly in the Freeman. However, her nickname of "Honeybunch" made me smile. She must have been a special lady.
May her sweet memory warm your hearts for years to come.
