Char was a member of Impact Life Ministries in Fort Thomas, KY and volunteered at the church cafe that was named after her, "Char Bucks". Char was preceded in death by her parents: Michael and Alice Farrell and siblings: Gayle Hussey and Joe Bauman. She is survived by her loving husband of 53 years: Bobby H. Cornelius; daughters: Christle Hatton and Alison (Jason Hutto) Venegas; siblings: Mike (Linda) Farrell, Patty McGee, Jim (Cheryl) Farrell and Della (Kelly) Green; grandchildren: Patrick, Nolan, Riley, Serella, Gracie, Lexi and Jaymie and numerous nieces and nephews.

Char was one of the most generous, strong, faith filled woman that I had the pleasure to care for during her chemo visits. She was a very special patient. What a long hard battle she fought. Rest in peace sweet Char. Praying for you Bob and all of your family.

I am so sorry for your loss. I never had the privilege of meeting your mom, but if she was anything like Allison, she had to be a strong and amazing woman. Hold on tight to your precious memories, they will get you through the times ahead.
