Cornelia Trousdale Obituary
Trousdale, Cornelia Thurman
Connie was born on June 16, 1921 on the family dairy farm at 15th and Glendale Avenues, to Burke and Lucille Thurman. She grew up loving horses, riding the trail along Central Ave., swimming (riding) in the canals, and generally living the kind of life every child should have. She attended Phoenix Union High School and then Arizona State College (ASU), before setting out on a life of work and writing. She developed a passion for the arts, and continued her love of horses. Her fondest memories were riding horseback through Spain and completing the 100 mile Tevis Cup Race. Connie left us on August 16th 2015. She is survived by her daughter Sharin (Arthur) Manes, grandchildren Jennifer (Rob) Townsend, Ryan (Melissa) Manes and Christopher (Stacy) Manes as well as six marvelous great grandchildren and numerous nieces and nephews. Services will be held at Greenwood Memorial Gardens at a later date. Ride on Mom! Please visit www.hansenmortuary.com to place online condolences.
