    I was saddened to hear the news of my mother in laws passing. I will miss our visits and our phone conversations about making quilts and her talking about Elvis! She might have been my mother in law but she’ll always be my Connie-Mom!

    Jerry Yancey says:

    Connie was my sister and friend. I didn’t know her to many years, but for the ones I did she was a delight. I know that she was missing her husband so much. Now she will be with him forever.

    Barbara & Jim Miller says:

    Connie was a beautiful soul, always smiling. I so enjoyed worshipping with her at Redeemer Lutheran Church for many years. Little did we know her son married my sister.
    Prayers for peace and comfort for her family and friends during this difficult time. She will be deeply missed. RIP Connie

    Julie Mead says:

    I feel blessed to have known Mrs. Connie. She was always so very pleasant. She always kept her hands manicured so perfectly with her signature red fingernail polish. I just know that she is rejoicing with the Lord! The Lord bless and keep you; the Lord make His face shine upon you and be gracious to you; the Lord turn His face toward you and give you peace.
    Numbers 6: 24-26
