Connie loved to sew, make crafts, crochet, sew quilted ornaments and make memory balls and follow her friends and family on Facebook.
Connie was a follower of “Star Trek” and the game show Family Feud. She always had a story to fill the room and an infectious laugh that would tickle anybody who heard it. She was an avid St. Louis Cardinals fan. Connie loved any visitor that came to her kitchen table for coffee.
