CONSTANCE G. OPPEL
March 21, 1924 ˜ June 7, 2020
Connie passed away peacefully at home the morning of Sunday, June 7th, at the age of 96. She was born in Baudette, MN, and lived in Williams, MN, until she left for the University of Minnesota after graduating from high school. She majored in Early Childhood Education, and thus began her career as a teacher. Most of her career was spent teaching kindergarten with the Vancouver School District (1968-1988) at Peter S. Ogden Elementary and Lake Shore Elementary.
Her hobbies included traveling, time with friends, cooking, reading, walking, service to her church, and most importantly spending time with her grandchildren.
We are sad she is gone, but now she is reunited with her son Jim who preceded her in death in 1970, and is survived by her other three children; Debby Campbell, Marcie Ramberg, and Tim Oppel, as well as her four grandchildren and the light of her life during the last year - her 1st great-granddaughter.
Please email her daughter Marcie at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to be notified of her TBD service.
Donations in her name can be made online to the Foundation for Vancouver Public Schools (https://foundationforvps.org/
