Ms. Connie was and still is a wonderful BLESSING to me in how she touched my life and the life of my mother. She is a beautiful lady who loves truly, dearly and deeply in her love walk with JESUS. She was diligent in her love walk in teaching her Joy sisters to be strong in the wisdom of GOD; you could just hear and feel the love in Ms.Connie's voice as you sat waiting for her every word as she taught the word of GOD; she told me that she loved teaching the word of God and that it was a passion of hers to teach. I love you Ms.Connie and miss you so much. I appreciate and will always remember her.

My deepest sympathies to the family. I worked with Connie at Inland Steel for many years and we had a lot of laughs and fun times throughout those years. I just spoke to her last month and she said a prayer for me due to a health concern. She was the sweetest lady and will be deeply missed. May God give the family strength to get through this difficult time & know that God is holding her in his arms and she is happy.
