Cora Gonzales, the 11-year-old daughter of George and Cookie Gonzales, of Oakfield Township, passed away early Wednesday morning, October 25, of injuries she sustained when she was hit by a car earlier this month.

According to the Team Cora facebook page, Cora died at around 1:30 a.m. 

“The gift of a such a beautiful child we never deserved,” wrote Cora’s parents. “God was gracious enough to bless us with Cora over the last 11 years. We will never forget her sparkling personality, love for people, her infectious smile, and her abundance of hugs. We waited for the miracle of healing on this earth, but God had different plans. Thank you all for the loving support and prayers. We will never be able to thank you enough. God bless you all.”

Cora was the 8th out of 10 children, and a student at Cedar View Elementary. She was hit by a car on Friday, October 6, on 14 Mile Road, between Harvard and Ramsdell, in front of her home. She suffered critical injuries, including damage to her inner brain. The community held a prayer vigil for her last week in Morley Park.

According to Cookie, Cora’s mother, she loved playing soccer with the AYSO United team, running, wrestling, camping, and spending time with her siblings and friends. She also loved participating in church events and loved her Lord, Jesus, with all of her heart.
