Her obituary:

Mrs. Elen Augusta CORNELL, wife of Ex-Governor Alonzo B. CORNELL, died at four o'clock this morning at their cottage on the Cornell University campus. She has been in poor health nearly two years, and for the past four months has been confined to the house.
Mrs. CORNELL was a lady of superior character and accomplishments whose memory will be cherished by a wide circle of friends throughout this state and far beyond its borders. During the Governor's active public career her home was distinguished for its genial and refined hospitality. Both in Albany and New York she was a zealous worker in many charitable organizations.
Her funeral will occur on Sunday afternoon at the chapel of the Cornell University.
