There’s nothing boring about a woman named Corky, and Cornelia “Corky” Acuff of Jefferson City is no exception. Mrs. Acuff passed away Jan. 31, at age 80. Her obituary reads: Corky was well-known for her spunk and charming personality. She loved well and was well loved. She spent her career and her life in the care of others.
Trained as a nurse, she worked in health care until moving to Jefferson County where she served as director for Senior Citizens Home Assistance Services Inc.
