Obituary for Norman F. Cornelius, DVM

Of Palatine  

Norman Fredric Cornelius, DVM was born on July 2, 1931 in Melvin, Illinois to Fredric Julius and Viola Staffgen Cornelius.  He died surrounded by his family on Thursday, May 17, 2018 in Arlington Heights.   

Norman was a lover of animals from a young age.  He was a man of humble beginnings.  Raised on a Central Illinois family farm, he worked tirelessly to become a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine, graduating in 1958 from the University of Illinois, Champaign.  He lovingly devoted his life to both Equine Medicine and to his family.  In his spare time, he loved to tend his many plants and animals. 

Norman is survived by his devoted partner of 35 years, Lori Weadley; his daughters, Christina (Osvaldo) Pasquesi, Karen (the late Donal) Fox, Janet (Robert) Tust, and Lisa Cornelius.  He was most proud of his 10 grandchildren, Stephanie, Erik, Lauren, Daniel, Dominic, Andrew, Anna, Elaine, Emma and Riley.
