She was the daughter of the late Charles and Rita (Forte) Baker. Connie as a caring wife and mother resided with her husband Jim in Frisco, TX. She will be missed and always held dear to the hearts of those who knew and loved her. Connie was born and raised in Boston Ma. She graduated from Girls High school in 1953 with perfected dance skills. By her late teens she was alternately dancing in both Miami and Montreal in an exciting career as a professional dancer. As a student of the Alda Morava Dance Studio, she was chosen to Dance at an upscale New York summer resort. Three years later, she rejoined her family who had moved to suburban Waltham Ma, and Connie entered the business world at a department store where she modeled high end clothes. Connie was the first runner up in the Miss Boston Pageant, and second in the Massachusetts Pageant. Connie switched jobs and operated an international order desk for a Waltham manufacturer. She was often in contact with an executive named Jim Peterman, who later became her husband. Jim and Connie relocated from MA to Dallas in 1965. After 2 years, Jim's job took him to Sherman, and the family followed. When that assignment was completed, Jim was promoted and returned to a Dallas position and the family was once again uprooted. From 1975 to 1977 Jim took an assignment in England. Connie and the boys followed. After the England assignment, the family returned to their Dallas home, where the boys re-established older friendships, giving Connie the opportunity to pursue more active and rewarding social engagements. She was a very active member of Northwood Woman's Club from 1981- 2003. During that time she served on various committees (Hospitality, Yearbook and Administration to name a few). She was a representative to the Dallas Area Federation of Women's Clubs for many years. Jim and Connie moved from Dallas to the newly developed Frisco Lakes Community in 2007. It is there that a celebration for Connie's life will be held on Sunday afternoon, Nov. 18, between 2:00 and 5:00PM for family and friends at the Frisco Lakes Amenity Center, 7277 Frisco Lakes Dr., Frisco TX 75034
