Our beloved mother, grandmother, sister and friend, Hannah Cornia Cox, age 86, passed away peacefully May 5, 1991, in a local hospital.
Hannah was born August 31, 1904, in Woodruff Utah, the daughter of John Melvin and Mary Ann Dean Cornia. She married Owen John Cox on May 9, 1923, in Randolph, Utah; later solemnized in the LDS temple. He preceded her in death, August 9, 1984. Hannah was a hard worker, even from her youth. She was the personnel manager at Woolworth's for many years; during World War II she worked for the Remington Arms Plant; and in later life she had a prosperous livelihood in the Real Estate industry. Active member of the LDS Church, among her many callings, she sang in the Tabernacle Choir and fulfilled a mission with her husband in Las Vegas in 1979-80. She wrote poetry, and was noted for her readings and her oratory. Her hobby was fishing, and spent many an hour with her family in the out doors, fishing (and hunting). Hannah was a kind and loving individual who was devoted to her family and was held in high esteem by all who knew her. She was always a lady and her passing saddens our hearts.Survivors include two daughters, Mrs. Melvin (Verna) Turner and Mrs. Dale (Nora) Howell, both Salt Lake City; 14 grandchildren; 33 great-grandchildren; and two brothers, Theris "Slash" Cornia, Woodruff; and Alton Cornia, Layton.
