Constance and Everette Forehand Obituary
WILLIAMSBURG - Constance LeFevre Forehand, beloved wife, mother, and friend, passed away on July 19, 2014. Our hearts are broken, though we know she has been reunited in Heaven with all our loved ones and the love of her life, beloved husband, father and friend, Joseph Everette Forehand, who passed away on January 29, 2012. Connie always said that when she got to heaven, she and Everette were going to sit on the clouds and sprinkle goodness and healing from our Lord and Heavenly Father. They were both such kind and loving spirits. They were loved and cared for in the comfort of their homes, by their loved ones, until God took them home in peace. Connie was born on February 1, 1937 to Mary Thomas and Jack LeFevre. She was a very talented and well-known artist. Her artwork was amazing and she always felt that it came from God. Connie was a partner at Peddler's Square. After Peddler's Square she was a designer at Miller and Rhoades and then moved on to share a shop at Tuesday on the Boulevard. For the rest of her career she started and opened CLF Designs. Connie has been at The House Key and formerly the Galleria for the past 25 years. She cherished all the friendships she made throughout her career and personal life. We will think of her every day and carry her in our hearts. She shared her words of God sent wisdom, a gift we will treasure and carry on to others. Everette was born on September 15, 1925 to Helen and Joseph Forehand. After high school, he pursued his passion for aviation and joined the Air Force, obtaining his engineering degree during his service. He continued to pursue his passion as an Aerospace Engineer at NCA (now NASA). Everette enjoyed sharing that one of his fondest professional memories was an invitation to speak at the Paris Air Show. In his spare time, he loved to design and build furniture, decorative items, and homes. Once he retired he started J.E. Forehand Builders Inc., and took on a full time role as an architect and builder for custom homes in Hampton Roads. He loved to sail, enjoying the Wednesday night races on his boat, The Windbreaker, at the Hampton Yacht Club. On September 6, 1975, Everette and Connie married. They celebrated their union each and every month during their 40 year marriage. Everette never forgot to "surprise" Connie with a love note on their anniversary each month, which she cherished deeply. Connie and Everette always had an open ear for their family and friends. They spoke kindly and always said to be kind. They shared their love for our Lord and Heavenly Father and both had a great sense of humor, which they passed on to the rest of the family. They also enjoyed entertaining friends and family in their home and spending time on the James River on their boat. They loved their Williamsburg Home that Everette designed and built and Connie perfected with her artistic talents. Many wonderful memories were created for themselves, their friends and family in their house. Everette often said that the best restaurant in Hampton Roads was his very own home, thanks to Connie's wonderful cooking. Everette and Connie leave to cherish their memories to their loved ones and children, Richard and Susan Martin, Amy B. Martin and Ronnie Carrithers, Tom and Lois Martin, Tim Martin and Mary Brown, Debbie Carrithers, Laura and Chris Calvert, and Rick Crist; grandchildren, Jessica and Rory Berg, Tyler Martin, Heather (deceased), Christopher and Lacey Martin, Jake and Hunter Martin, Tim and Kady Brown, Less and Cam Carrithers, Evan and Drew Williams; and seven great-grandchildren; Connie's brother and wife, James and Carol LeFevre and their family; and Everette's sisters, Pat and Stack Goodin, and Nancy and Drew Ronemous and their families. Connie and Everette shared the closest, kindest love for each other and all their loved ones, especially their children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren, and friends. They embraced their love for each other and all that were in their lives, and their love and kindness flowed through to all of our lives. We appreciate all the support and prayers given to us from all our friends, loved ones, and the members of Hospice.
