We regret to inform you that we have lost another classmate and Alabama has lost a former first lady.
We simply remember her as 'C'nelia'; our classmate,a dark-haired ,energetic and athletic cheerleader adored by all.
Alabama and the world remembers the image of her throwing herself over George Wallaces' body as he lay bleeding in a shopping center parking lot in Laurel,Md.
Cornelia died of cancer in Sebring,Fl where she had moved to be near her sons.
If you would like to send a memorial the family asks to send to NAMI ( national alliance of mental Illness) 316 East Park Ave., Tallahassie, Fl.
