Although I only got to be around her at our work gatherings that Bill brought her to, it was obvious what a sweet and generous soul she was. Even when she wasn’t in attendance she made sure we were taken care of. She most definitely had a giving heart! To her family and friends, you are in my heart and prayers. May he comfort you all for the days to come. Connie may you forever be resting in peace.
Connie was a good person – she and Bill seemed very happy together, despite their recent health struggles. Whenever I saw her, she was a positive light, always willing to help out others in need. It always amazed me that she and Bill would rally and be present at various co-worker gatherings and parties – always young at heart! She will be missed dearly
