Connie was a valued member of Lamesa area genealogical society.
She also donated numerous books to the Dawson County library.
They, Connie and Ronnie, will be missed in the Lamesa area. Not only in genealogy but also in church.

Connie was our neighbor across Harvey St. here in Burnet. She visited with us at meetings at First Baptist Church and when we both were out in our yards. She also was a friend who when our daughter failed to pick up one night at church graciously gave us a ride home.

Connie will be missed.

I’ve known Connie many many years. I loved her like a sister. I will miss her. I think us sewing together is one of my favorite memories. One weekend we cut out over 50 pair of pajama pants. The next weekend we sewed them together. Whew! We were both sick of pajama pants for a while after that!
