Connie your love extended to this young woman who had moved 2000 miles away from her family, so I became part of the Church Family in the early 70's & remain so to this day. Karen was my best friend until her death. The same tragic disease took my birth Mom in 2017 and then you in 2021. Look to the heavens and your star is burning bright. Love, Patricia, your eldest daughter ❤

Some things are so precious to me that even I can’t put them into words. My grandmother and I had a bond unlike any other. She fueled many of my life’s greatest passions, she showed me what it was like to be an independent woman, and she taught me the importance of unconditional infectious kindness. She was the light of my life; every time I was with her, my soul was at rest because not one thing could ruin my time with her. She is 100% the reason I am the woman I am today, and I will miss her deeply. I hope to one day be even a fraction of the queen she was—my condolences to anyone who shares my pain. I hope you remember her as the rainbow she was. She truly was 1 in a million and I will miss her dearly,

Connie took care of my children, my family in so many ways.

I put my babies in her arms for child care, knowing and trusting they were always safe and loved. I called upon her in times of family need, and without skipping a beat, Connie was there. She ALWAYS made me laugh, even if I had heard the story before. She shared her gifts of cooking and sewing with me and my children.

Connie IS an indomitable spirit who, I know, is still with us. I also know, she is now standing tall, strong and will continue to shine her light on those she loved.

I am so fortunate to have known, and been loved by, Grandma Connie.....grandma to all.

With love and complete warmth....
