Funeral Card of Dorothy Edith Cox (My Great Aunt)

Dorothy was my great aunt and my father, Billy E. Cornett’s aunt; I personally do not know much about her life. From what my mother has told me, we went to visit her when I was just a baby. She is currently a brick wall for me as far as research is concerned, but I do know that my father, Billy Edward Cornett died on April 28, 2001 and Dorothy Edith Cox (Cornett) died on April 30, 2001. A mere 2 days apart! I didn’t realize this until I started looking at the dates of Dorothy’s funeral card above and my fathers death record.

  2. The cover of the card is beautiful. It is always important to compare people and their life events for context, isn’t it?

      Thank you and I believe it is very important to compare life events of people in your family or those of others you may be doing research for. It gives insight into their lives. I know this particular post should have been categorized under Funeral Card Friday, but it’s the closest thing to an obituary that I had for her.
