Connie lived life to the fullest and enjoyed each and every day. She had a passion and a gift for helping others and loved nothing more than spending time with her grandchildren and making family her number one priority. Called affectionately by her many niece and nephews “ta-tante,” she could be counted on to bring the fun and energy to any situation. Connie had the most infectious laugh and personality that could, and often did, fill an entire room. She had an incredible devotion to her numerous friends and neighbors. It would not be an exaggeration to say she has never met a stranger. Steadfast in her faith, she did not fear the inevitable day that she would be blessed to meet her Lord and savior, Jesus Christ. She believed her very best days were always in front of her. Proverbs 31: 25-31
