Our beautiful mother, grandmother and great-grandmother, Billie Lou Corless Cornia, returned to her heavenly father on June 19, at the age of 80 in Ogden, Utah.
She was born at her home in Randolph, Utah on Dec. 29, 1929, where she lived her entire life. She was the daughter of Ernest William and Maude Kennedy Corless. Billie graduated from South Rich High School in 1948 and was married to Don Cornia on June 10, 1948 in Randolph. Together they had four children: Louise, Julie, Ern and Jeanne. They lived in Randolph most of their entire married life and spent many happy hours on the ranch. Don passed away on Feb. 5, 1986.
She was a faithful member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints where she served in many callings, including Relief Society president, Primary president, ward choir, and a Primary teacher. She loved the Primary children and taught until a few weeks short of her 80th birthday. She served in the Ogden Temple for several years.
Billie worked in the Rich County Clerk's Office and for the Justice Court for 27 years, retiring at the age of 75. She loved her job and the people she worked with there.
Mom loved her family, her cats, the Utah Jazz, and Diet Coke. She said she was not giving up her Diet Coke unless the prophet said she had to. Our mother was a great example to all of her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren and was loved and respected by everyone.
She is survived by her two daughters, Lousie (Jerry) Avondet and Jeanne (Randy) Myers; one son, Ern (Lori) Cornia; her special son-in-law, Richard Avondet; 11 grandchildren, and 13 great-grandchildren.
Billie was preceded in death by her husband, Don; her daughter, Julie Avondet; and her parents.
A special thanks to the caregivers at Wasatch Care Center for their loving care they gave to our Mother.
