OBITUARY ~ DAN COLLINS CORNEILSON
December 07, 1915 ~ October 12, 2007

Dan Collins CORNEILSON, 91, Maryville, Missouri, died October 12, 2007 at Beverly Living Center in Maryville, Missouri.

He was born December 7, 1915, in Benton, Iowa, to Guy and Julia DENHART CORNELISON and graduated from Diagonal High School in 1931. He moved to Maryville with his parents in 1933 and married Mary Alice TYSON on April 23, 1939.

Dan served in the Navy during World War II. He retired from the U.S. Postal Service in 1980 after 42 years of service. He also was a self-taught local piano tuner for many years. He was a member of the First Christian Church, James Edward Gray American Legion Post #100, the National Association of Retired Federal Employees, Men's Forum and the Bearcat Booster Club. He also was a Hospice volunteer for many years.

He was preceded in death by his parents and a niece Deeana WARIN, but is survived by his wife Mary Alice, Maryville, and by his sister, Lorabel TAYLOR, Creston, Iowa. He is also survived by: sons Richard, Flemington, New Jersey; Robert and his wife Jantina, Rochester, New York; Joe and his wife Ellita, Maryville; by grandchildren Chad CORNEILSON and his wife Robin, Springfield, New Jersey; Celeste CORNEILSON, Hoboken, New Jersey; and Justin and Rebecca CORNEILSON, Rochester, New York; by step-grandchildren, Eugene BURCH, Maryville; James BURCH and his wife Maria, Colorado Springs, Colorado; Tom LUBBERTS and his wife Janelle, Jim LUBBERTS and his wife Debra, Joyce COLLIER and her husband Tom, and Karen PRZYBYCIEN and her husband Wally, all of Rochester, New York; by two great-grandchildren and twelve step-great-grandchildren; and by four nieces and nephews.

During his life, Dan embodied the heart and soul of America: hard work, self-reliance, and love of God, family and country. Through the life he led, he demonstrated that the common man can still have an uncommon impact on the world around him. He was an active supporter of the Maryville community and will be missed by not only his family, but also by many friends.

The family will receive friends from 6:00-8:00 p.m. Tuesday October 16, 2007 at the First Christian Church, Maryville. Funeral services will be at 10:30 a.m. Wednesday October 17, 2007, also at the church. Burial will be at Miriam Cemetery, Maryville.

Memorials may be made in Dan's name to the Northwest Foundation for the Redd Degree Completion Fund, 800 University Drive, Maryville, Missouri 64468 or to the First Christian Church.

Arrangements are by Price Funeral Home, Maryville, www.pricefuneralhomemaryville.comand
