    I am so saddened to hear this. I thoroughly enjoyed Bible Studies with Connie. She was such a scholar of the Bible. She was very proud of her kids and grands and told everyone she came in contact with about them. She will be missed. My thoughts and prayers go out to her family during this difficult time.

    Connie was in my history class at THS, and she was such a positive and active student in all our activities. I remember how athletic and agile she was with the “Limbo Sticks.” She was the best. Also, I lived next door to Connie and her family, and she really cared about others.

    I really hate that I missed out on Connie —-post high school. I had no idea where she lived and etc. I would have benefited from some more hilarity!
    My loss.
    I loved this crazy gal in high school. My very best to Helen and her wonderful family. You always welcomed me into your home.
    I hope her memories which had to be numerous bring you much comfort.

    Connie was a great friend of mine for 30 years. It will be hard for me to do life without Connie. She was my advisor on so many subjects, a good advisor. She saw the big picture many times when I didn’t. She loved her beautiful family and was so proud of her four grandchildren. They all had their special relationship with Nanna.
