In 1940 Tucson, Cornelia K. DuBois is 37, born in Wyoming, with Codita K. 11 California and Helen K. 3 in Arizona.

1952 Tucson "Cornelia DuBois "seems to get so much enjoyment out of her music." Fact is, Mrs. D. Burr DuBois gets tremendous enjoyment out of everything she does -- and her activities are certainly valued. She is president of the Tucson Symphony Association, plays first violin in the symphony orchestra, is a teller at the Southern Arizona bank, and manages to run her East Ninth street home efficiently for her husband and family besides! Mrs. DuBois' interest in music is lifelong. Her father, who helped build the Panama canal, was an ardent musician, and the Van Hardeveld home in the canal zone was a rendezvous of artists on their way to and from Europe and North and South America. Artists' two or three day waits for transportation gave the family a rare treat of concerts and friendships. Mrs. DuBOIS remembers Amelita GalH-Curci, Anna Pavlova, Antonio Mazzuchi, Santos Lo Priore, Mme. Markoff, Anton Rubinstein, to mention a few. "The violin I am using was given me in Panama by Santos Lo Proire, a famous Italian violinist, and though it does not have much meaning to anyone else, the incentive it gave a gangling, giggling high school freshman was invaluable." The violin is Mrs. DuBois' instrument not because she chose it, "but because my father chose it for me." She's glad that's what she plays, however, because it's easy to carry around. It has brought her many wonderful experiences. "I've just fiddled my way everywhere!" she said. She used to play aboard battleships lying out in the harbor, and then be a guest of the officers afterwards at lunch. She played Christmas Eve mass in the Cathedral, Christmas morning for the Knights of Pythias, was a guest of the American Federation of Churches on the radio while studying in New York, played with the peoples orchestra in the Hollywood Bowl played aboard hospital ships as they lay at anchor on the Pacific side of the canal zone, "trying to make the music very happy when swallowing my own tears," Mrs. DuBois came to Tucson with her mother and sister 25 years ago, and this has been her home ever since. And what a growth she's seen in the interest in music in the Old Pueblo. As the Tucson Symphony starts its 23th season, I can't help remembering its first season with Camil Van Hulse as conductor. It was a pretty good orchestra, even then." Mrs. DuBois feels that Madeline Berger did much for music in Tucson. "I remember the operas she did each year. She'd coach, direct, stage and whip the opera into shape, then conduct the whole thing from the piano bench!" And what is' Mrs. DuBois' favorite music? "PROBABLY because Lucia de Lammermoor was the first opera I heard (at the age of seven) it and other opera 'tunes are favorites. Beethoven and the old masters are my preference for orchestra. But I do try to listen to the modern composers with an open ear. In preparing concerts with the Symphony, things I can hardly tolerate on first hearing generally develop into something very melodic by concert time. I often wonder about the audience's reaction to first hearings." There has always been a trio of sorts in Cornelia's home. Her father played the celio, some of her sisters the piano, and she the fiddle. It's the same in the DuBois home today. Her husband plays the piano, their daughter Helen the viola."

Burdetta attended Tucson High school graduated with honors from the University of Arizona and was awarded the University Best Sports Woman of the year in 1938 for basketball, bowling, hockey, baseball and tennis. While teaching and coaching at Tucson High, she made an impact on future leaders.
While pinned to a navy pilot, she met Jacob van Hardeveld through two of her students, who were determined to have them meet when their uncle was home on leave. They danced into the wee hours of the morning and she broke her navy pilot's heart the very next day. She married Van within 10 days of their meeting. Burdetta enjoyed married life as a military wife and treasured friendships made in their service together. Some fond memories include their years in China, where she and another Army wife started a school for children of diplomats in Peking (Beijing) their tours included Shang Hai, Nan King, Fort Polk, Fort Hood, Louisiana.
Van and "Pete" (as he would affectionately call her) raised three children and she continued to substitute teach in the AHISD and continued volunteer service through the Army Community Service at BAMC. After working in the plastic surgery department, she determined that she would never undergo any of those procedures. After retirement, Burdetta continued working in the elementary schools as a mentor, until the age of 87. She served on many boards, but noteworthy to her were the Alamo Heights Presbyterian Day School, Northwood women of the Church, AHPC Presbyterian Women, SA A & M Mother's Club. Other volunteer groups with which she was associated were the Grey Ladies (a WWII weekly bandage rolling group), White Cross, YWCA, Girl Scouts of America, Eastern Star, Ladies of the Ribbon.

She spent 3 years caring for her husband in the later stages of his Parkinson's and Alzheimer's Diseases. Tennis and bridge were her two favorite hobbies watching Wimbledon with family, enjoying strawberries and cream was the next best thing to being there, even if it meant once missing Sunday School. Mrs. Van is preceded in death by her parents, Mattie Lee Kines Hunt and Walter Marshall Kines; husband, Jacob Arnold van Hardeveld and sister, Virginia Bell Kines Cathey. She is survived by her children, Jacob Arnold and Lynnette van Hardeveld, Kay van Hardeveld Studebaker, Ginny and Ed Porrata; grandchildren, Alejandro and Yvette Vando, Katherine Michelle van Hardeveld Torrens and Kenny Torrens, Hilary Mahr Studebaker and Ben Willman, Stephanie Christina Burdetta van Hardeveld Studebaker and Mark Stamps, Carolyn Cody and Brian Atkins, Claire van Hardeveld Porrata; great-grandchildren, Finn Aiden Willman, Cairan and Sage Willman, Kenny Jay Torrens, Alejandro David Vando.
