Birth: Jul. 24, 1897
Rotterdam Municipality
Zuid-Holland, Netherlands
Death: Oct. 21, 1923
Salt Lake City
Salt Lake County
Utah, USA

Daughter of Ludwig and Maria Vandermost Zappeij.

She married Gerrit "George" De Reus on May 2, 1917. They had three children: George, Marion, and Mary. Their son George died from appendicitis in 1922, shortly before his fourth birthday.

The family lived at 1238 South 2nd West in Salt Lake City.

The night of October 21, 1923, the family was driving in their car near 8th West and 21st South. Cora's husband failed to see an approaching electric train, and the auto was struck.

Cora's husband and 3-year-old daughter Marion died instantly, while Cora and her 15-month-old daughter Mary were brought to the County Hospital. Cora passed away a few minutes after arriving. Her surviving daughter escaped the accident with a broken leg.

Cora, George, and Marion were buried together in the Salt Lake City Cemetery on October 25, 1923.
