Constance Mary Cornett

Constance “Connie” Mary Cornett, born May 14, 1928 passed away Nov. 26, leaving behind her husband, Fred Cornett, and four children, Deborah, Jennifer, David and Peter. 

“She was a faithful wife, a beloved mother and remarkable woman,” a loved one said.

A longtime resident of Malibu, Connie moved with her husband and first two children, Deborah and Jennifer, to Las Flores Mesa Dr. from Pacific Palisades in 1954. She bore her next two children, David and Peter, completing the family.

Connie and Fred enjoyed the seclusion of a grassy bluff overlooking the Pacific Ocean as the first residents of Las Flores Mesa. 

Connie participated in the PTSA of Webster Elementary School and Malibu Park Junior High School. Connie also was a Boy Scout mom, helped with carpools and served on the Alter Guild and Vestry of St. Aidan’s Episcopal Church, which she and her husband helped establish.

Connie and Fred lost their first home in the 1993 fires and rebuilt a new homestead, christening the home in 1996.

“She will be greatly missed by her husband, by her four children, by her seven grandchildren and three great grandchildren,” a family member said. “We know she will also be missed by her many friends of St. Aidan’s, of the surrounding community and her extended family in England.”

A memorial service will take place at St. Aidan’s Episcopal Church, 28211 Pacific Coast Hwy. at 10 a.m. on Dec. 8.
