I am so sorry to learn of Mrs. Troublefield's death. Many years ago her husband put in air-conditioning in our house and we enjoyed it for many years. I send my sympathy especially to Paul, whom we know through Dixie Exterminating.

I am so sorry for your loss. While visiting my mother-in-law at Brookdale, I would also get to visit with Cornelia. She always had a smile for me and enjoyed telling others that I was her second cousin. She loved to share the memory of how she and my mother, Lib (Hollis) Wallace, were not only first cousins but were best friends growing up! My Mom had shared that memory with me also. It was always a pleasure to see and talk to her. I was amazed at how sharp her mind was at age 98, which she would also remind me of and tell me when she would be turning 99! My daughters spoke with her earlier this year and she spoke of her family and of memories of their Grandmother. She was very blessed with a big, wonderful family and a long life. I will miss seeing her on my visits to Brookdale. Janet (Wallace) Robinson

Mrs. Troublefield's house was the most organized of any I visited while growing up. A visit from Atlanta where I lived to Rock Hill where my dear friend Jean lived, was the highlight of my summer. Meals were prepared by Becky and Linda, each taking turns at cooking and washing the dishes. The boys each had a chores and responsibilities. One memory is how the kids lined up on Sunday morning to have their shoes shined. Which boy did the shining I can't remember. I do remember that a reporter once came out and wrote a story about this amazingly managed household. Well, with eight children, Mrs. Troublefield was an exceptional homemaker and household manager. She did a lot of sewing, making the family's clothes and helping others.
My mother, Mamie, had a lifelong friendship with Cornelia. They were best friends from early grammar school through Rock Hill High and Mother was in attendance at Cornelia's wedding. Many miles and the business of life separated the families with distance but never changed the friendship and deep respect they had for each other. Always and forever Mrs. Troublefield will hold a warm place in my heart. At Mother's last visit to Cornelia's home, Cornelia said, "I wondered if I would ever get to see Mamie again." Before Mother turned toward the door, she said, "If I don't see you again here, we will see each other ABOVE." Well, now they're seeing each other again!
