From the Billings County Pioneer, Thursday April 25, 1957

Last rites were solemnized this Monday, April 22, 1957, for Mrs. Charles Cornell of Medora, at the Congregational Christian church in Medora. Eugene F. Irish, pastor of the Seventh-day Adventist church in Beach, officiated at the services. Mrs. Cornell, 73, succumbed of the effects of cancer on Wednesday April 17, at 6 p.m. at her daughter’s home in Medora.

Pallbearers included Milford Vanvig, Sidney Connell, Charles McCutchan, John Reilly, Joe Hild, and Gerald Nunn. Interment followed in the Medora City cemetery.

Honorary pallbearers were: Ben Bird, Louis Pelissier, Lars Vanvig, Chi Otto, Bernard Wilson, Chi Osterhout, Byron Cornell, and Chris Rasmussen.

Survivors are her husband and her children, Charles Cornell, Jr. of Sentinel Butte, Ted Cornell of Medora, William (Bill) Cornell of Mandan, Donald Cornell, Medora, and two daughters, Mrs. Mary Jones of Santa Ana, Calif., and Mrs. Martha Porter of Medora, and 16 grandchildren. One brother also survives, Hugh Anderson, at Orlando, Fla., and one sister, Mrs. June Vieland, Beach, and a step-sister, Mrs. Edith Hanson of Spokane, Wash.

Mrs. Cornell is the former Lulu Marion Anderson, the daughter of John and Frances Clara Anderson, and was born Sept. 11, 1884, at Princetown, Minn. She attended the Harmon rural school, south of Medora, and was married to Charles Cornell at Dickinson on Jan. 14, 1907.

She was a continuous resident of the state of N. D. for 61 years and had resided in Medora with her daughter, Mrs. Porter, for the eight months preceding her death. She was ill for just eight months, before succumbing of cancer on April 17, 1957.

Mrs. Cornell and her husband are pioneers of the Medora ranching community, having lived most of their lives on their homestead a few miles south of Medora. They celebrated their golden wedding anniversary this past January.

Mrs. Cornell’s passing is deeply mourned by many loyal friends and devoted relatives who remember her many kindnesses.
