During our last fund drive one donor said this: "I love hymns ... If you asked for money, it means you need it! Please keep the work going. And please, accept my widow's mite. God bless you."

She was right. We only ask for money twice a year, and we do so because we need it.

Julia C. Cory (Julia Buckley Cady Cory) was born in New York, NY in 1882. She was the daughter of a prominent New York architect, J. Cleveland Cady. Her father was also a Sunday school superintendent and amateur hymnologist. Partly because of his influence Julia began to write hymns at an early age. She was a member of the Brick Presbyterian Church. She married Robert Haskell Cory in 1911 and was a member of the Presbyterian Church in Englewood, NJ for all of her married life. She was a member of the Hymn Society that met in New York City all her adult life and died in Englewood, NJ in 1963. She raised 3 sons and they had 15 grandchildren.
