Connie M Srote Obituary
Connie Merle Srote was born July 17, 1937, in Tucumcari, New Mexico. She was the third of five daughters of Robert Eugene and Opal Griggs Srote. She died on July 20, 2018, in Austin, Texas. She is preceded in death by her parents and eldest sister, Mary Jean. Survivors include: sisters, Bobbie Dickinson, Nancy Ayler and Linda Srote; son, Kenyon David Corbell and his wife Erika; daughter, Stacy Lynn; and granddaughter, Leia Crawford and her husband Fionnegan Murphy. Also surviving are numerous cousins, nieces and nephews.
Connie Srote graduated from Tucumcari High School in 1955 and from Texas Western College (UTEP) in 1962 with a degree in English. She began her English and Art teaching career in Keller, Texas and taught at South San High and Harlandale High in San Antonio as her first husband Berman D. Corbell pursued his career as a football coach. In subsequent years, Connie taught at Shannon Jr. High in Corpus Christi, Poteet Middle and High Schools, Canyon Middle School in New Braunfels, and one year at Tucumcari Middle School while residing there with her mother. She was married to Albert L. Hodges of Boerne and during those years she worked as a graphic artist in Student Services at the UTHSCSA.
Connie enjoyed working in and teaching the fundamentals of various art mediums and producing shows of student work. She exhibited her own award-winning black and white photography. Connie enjoyed spending time with her family and friends attending sporting events and theater productions, cooking together, hiking the canyons of her ancestral home, and collecting and recording family stories. She compiled these stories into a book about the history of her family and the challenges they overcame. Whether the activity was a dinosaur dig, a stage production, a graduation or a family meal, Connie's happiest times were with Kenyon, Erika, Stacy and Leia. She loved them with pride and gratitude.
