Connie Lynn Main-Thompson
Connie Lynn Main-Thompson, 61, of Beaumont, died Saturday, December 4, 2021, in Houston, Texas, surrounded by her children. She was born on June 15, 1960, to Charlotte Ranger and Charles Main in Norwich, Connecticut.
Connie worked as a psychiatric tech at Stoney Lodge Hospital in Ossining, New York, where she met John, the love of her life. They eventually married and began their life in Beacon, New York. Their first child, Carley, was born in New York in 1990 and the family soon moved to Texas in 1992. They then had four more children: Hannah in 1994, Matthew in 1997, Jacob in 2000, and Mallorie in 2007, in Beaumont. Once in Texas, Connie initially worked as a pediatric nurse at Christus St. Elizabeth Hospital and Baptist Hospital, and as a psychiatric nurse at Baptist Hospital. She also worked for the State of Texas in the Medically Dependent Children’s Program, where she found her passion for helping children with special needs and disabilities. She later worked as a senior RN case manager for United Healthcare and had a deep appreciation for jobs in which she could physically and emotionally help people in need. Connie had a knack for comforting people who opened up to her and impressed everyone she knew with her generosity and hardworking attitude. She loved sewing and being with her children and grandchildren, who she was never too busy to spend time with. She is deeply missed by those who live on without her and she will never be forgotten.
Connie was wise, kind, loving, accepting, honest, genuine, respected, intelligent, creative, compassionate, and determined. She was an incredible mother, wife, daughter, sister, friend, advocate, and Ya-ya (grandmother), which she demonstrated to those who she has touched.
She was preceded in death by both of her parents, her husband John, and her daughter Mallorie. She is survived by her sisters, Jean Silliman, Joan Capallo, and Heather Nye; her brothers, George Main and Robert Capallo; daughter and son-in-law, Carley O’Burke and Jeremy O’Burke; grandchildren, Joshua and Eva; daughter, Hannah Thompson; son and daughter-in-law, Matthew and Lauren Thompson; and son Jacob Thompson.
