  1. Connie was a dear friend and neighbor to Betty and me. We were so blessed to know her. We have missed her when she went to the care center since our visits there had to stop due to Covid. She always welcomed us into her home and often gave us grapes. We enjoyed hearing the wonderful stories of her life. She made a great contribution to many lives and especially to ours.

  2. I will always remember Connie’s willingness to share her talents and interests, and I always felt very welcome in her home. She had a special way of joking with a half-serious smile that eventually turned into a full “Gotcha” grin! 😃 Never a quitter, she lived a life filled with both outdoor adventures and homemaking comforts. RIP Aunt Connie. 💝

  4. I moved next door to this sweet, sassy girl (Connie of course) in 2010. She made so many of my days fun with her constant enthusiasm for life and “going places”. I teased her that I could never leave the keys in the car of my VW Bug when we went out in it because I was sure she would go joy riding. She admitted it was true (with her mischievous smile). Connie was such a bright light and I am sure she is in Heaven getting everyone together for fun. I was so lucky to know her.
    She loved talking about her son JC and I am so glad I have been able to get to know him. I see a lot of her in him.
    Fly with the angels Connie. You will be remembered and missed always.

  5. We so love Connie, and will always remember her warm smile and graciousness toward us. May the Lord be with her family until that sweet reunion yet to come!

  6. I loved Aunt Connie. She was so talented with her hands. She could knit, sew, and do many other handicrafts. The clothes she made were impeccable. I remember Mom had her make me some clothes for school one year. They were amazing.
