Audrey A. Cornell died after a lengthy battle with cancer on Wednesday, 10/22 in McKinney, Texas. She is survived by her son, Mark, her daughter-in-law Louann, and her grandson Mike Cornell. She was preceded in death by her husband William G. Cornell, of Cincinnati, and her brother John A. (Jack) Twomey, of Winchester, MA. Audrey was born in Boston on March 24, 1922 to Andrew and Anne Twomey. She married William on June 14, 1952, in Boston. Audrey was a 50 year resident of Cincinnati, coming from Boston with GE in 1951. Audrey's passion was volunteer work within the community, including the Cincinnati Community Chest, the YWCA, Wyoming Meals on Wheels, and the Great Rivers Girl Scout council where she served as President in the early 80's. She then focused her efforts on the Valley Interfaith Food and Clothing Center, in Wyoming, filling many roles, and remaining highly involved until finally retiring in 2002, at age 80. Audrey moved with her son and family to Columbus in 2003, and then Dallas in 2005. A Mass of Christian Burial will be held on Monday 10/27 at St. Gabriel the Archangel Catholic church in McKinney, Texas. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to the Valley Interfaith Clothing Center in her name (420 W. Wyoming Avenue, Cincinnati 45215).
