They farmed in the Bellview community southeast of Plainview until his retirement. They would have celebrated 73 years of marriage in June. He was preceded in death by his parents; an infant son, Terry Austin Cornelius; a brother, J.W. Cornelius; three sisters, Eugenia Willmon, Biff Hogan and Margie Cline. He is survived by his wife, Maurine; one sister, Barbara Sue Keily; three daughters, Anna Price and husband Joe, Linda Rice, Rhonda Abbott and husband Tony; one son, Jimmy W. Cornelius and wife Heidi; eleven grandchildren, eleven great grandchildren, numerous nieces and nephew and many friends. The family suggests memorial contributions be sent to your favorite charity.
