Connie M. Cornelius

February 27, 1958 – February 19, 2023

Connie M. Cornelius

Connie Cornelius, age 64, passed away on February 19, 2023.

Connie was born in Cincinnati, Ohio to Ralph and Marjorie Focke.

Connie is survived by loving husband, Kevin Cornelius, her children, Shannon Ellis (Greg Spears) and Vincent (Jamie) Cornelius, her grandchildren, Tyler (Jayla Phillips) Riggs, Joseph Musgrave, Dylan Musgrave, Derek Ellis, Kyle Ellis, Zachary Whalen and great grandchild, Jesse Riggs, her siblings, Bruce (Irene) Focke, Marlene (Ron) Push, Anita (Glenn) Giesler, Thomas Focke, and Mick Focke. Dear brother and sister -in-law, Dennis and Peggy Cornelius and a host of nieces and nephews.

She was preceded in death by parents, and sister -in-law, Traci Focke.

Connie loved nothing more in this world than spending time with her best friend and husband Kevin. She cherished the time spent with her children, grandchildren and great grandson. She had countless family and friends that she adored. She spent time crafting and showering those she loved with her brilliant and personal gifts. She always had a kind word and a warm smile for everyone she met. One of her greatest joys was the trip to Hawaii, her and Kevin took. It brought her so much happiness and joy.

Connie will be missed by so many people. She touched countless lives with her warmth and love. We are all better people for having her in our lives.
