October 20, 1932 - February 13, 2021
Mildred “Millie” or “Monie” Cornue passed away on Saturday, February 13, 2021. She was born in Pompey NY, to David and Irma Jones. For many years Millie and her husband of 46 years Ralph, lived in Tully, NY raising their 2 daughters; Donna and Ginny. They moved to Liverpool in 1968 and then settled in Lyncourt in 1973. One of Millie’s greatest achievements, that we were all so proud of, is that she returned to school in her 40’s to get her GED. This was completed while continuing to work full time at Marine Midland Bank. She retired from Marine Midland after 35 years of service as a bank officer, training many new employees and auditing branch banks throughout central New York. After her retirement Millie volunteered at Crouse Hospital, often treating the volunteer valet parking attendants to donuts. Millie’s greatest joy was spending time with her family, especially at holiday time. She was famous for her chip “dip” and her dessert “Death by Chocolate”, that she brought to every celebration. We are still looking for someone to duplicate these two delicious delights. She even treated the workers at Heritage Lincoln Mercury to her Death by Chocolate when she had her car serviced. For many years Ralph and Millie cruised to Bermuda and the Bahamas. They also spent time during the winter in Myrtle Beach making many new friends. Millie’s last residence was Camillus Ridge Terrace which became her home. She made many new friends there. We want to give our thanks to all the caregivers at Camillus Ridge Terrace but a very special thanks to: Kathy, Amy and Deb. Mom loved you all. You became part of our family and we give you all our heartfelt thanks. Millie is survived by her daughter, Ginger, “Ginny” Price, (Frank) of Syracuse, NY; sister, Beatrice Schrader, (Johnny), of Cortland, NY; son-in-law, Bill Fox of Tully, NY; seven grandchildren, Elizabeth Maddestra, of Scottsdale, AZ, Belinda Casolare (Walter) of Otisco, NY, Jeralyn Baca of Otisco, NY, Jessica Forman (Peter) of Brooklyn, NY, Casey Price (Mary Ellen) of Syracuse, NY, Andrew Price (Jacklyn) of Silver Spring, MD, Shannon Kane (Daniel) of Oswego, NY; 16 great-grandchildren and 2 great-great grandchildren. Millie was always proud to say she was the first of 5 generations. Millie was predeceased by her husband of 46 years, Ralph; daughter, Donna Fox; her parents, David and Irma Jones; brother, Donald Jones; sisters, Dorothy Brillanti and Barbara Bush; and her grandson-in-law, Tommy Baca.
