Obituary: Patricia "Tricia" Ann Crowther Cornia, 59, of Randolph, Utah, was born September 1, 1951 in Alamosa Colorado to Howard "Skip" and LaVon Crowther.

She died December 2, 2010 in Salt Lake City, Utah.

She was born a cowgirl and spent her childhood helping on the family ranch in the San Luis Valley of Colorado and the mountains of northern New Mexico. She broke colts, gathered cows, fixed fence, and ran hay equipment alongside her Dad and two brothers. She graduated from Sanford High School in 1969 and then attended Rick's College. After completing her Associates Degree she went on to Utah State University and completed her Bachelor's Degree in Business Administration. She also took numerous masters courses and only lacked writing her thesis to complete her Master's Degree. While at Utah State she was also a member of the rodeo team and competed in Barrel Racing, Goat Tying, and Breakaway Roping. She was crowned Miss Utah State Rodeo Queen and also held many other rodeo queen titles across Utah and Colorado.

While at Utah State she met the love of her life, William "Bill" Dee Cornia Jr. from Randolph Utah. They were married in the Ogden Temple on August 16, 1974. They moved to Randolph in 1976 where she began working for the Rich County School District. She worked as the Business Administrator and School Board Clerk for 34 years. She thoroughly enjoyed her job and all the people she worked with over her career.

Tricia was a devoted wife and mother to her three kids and husband. Over the years she followed the Rich High School basketball team, and her two sons and husband, as they played and coached across the state. She also supported her daughter while she followed in Tricia's footsteps, participating in many rodeo events. In addition to these activities, she was also bookkeeper, announcer, and secretary for the family's team roping business. Tricia was an active member of the LDS Church and served in many positions over her life including Primary Presidency, Young Women's Presidency, and Visiting Teacher. She was also an active member in the community and civic affairs where she gladly volunteered her time.

Tricia was preceded in death by her mother and father and a stillborn son, Chase Cornia, and her in-laws, Dee and Helen Cornia of Randolph.

She is survived by her husband, Bill, her three children, Jodi and Ben Clements of Stephenville Texas, Lex and Lisa Cornia of Evanston, and Jade Cornia of Randolph.
