Aunt Connie was a wonderful lady, I will never forget her. I always cherished the times I was able to spend with her, usually around the holidays. Aunt Connie and Grandma would usually be in or near the kitchen preparing some amazing meals and of course, delectable desserts!!! At Christmas time, she was like a kid herself, she really LOVED Christmas, she delighted both in opening her gifts, and in watching others open their gifts. She was always a very generous and caring person. As an adult, she came to my kids' baby showers with blankets she hand knitted. They loved those blankets and still have them! Another time, Connie and Jack were out of town, but offered to let our entire baseball team crash at their house so we didn't have to rent motel rooms!
Once Grandma got up in years and then passed, Aunt Connie became the matriarch of our family get-togethers. She was a taskmaster, always making sure every detail was "just right". Going to her home at the holidays was like going to a wonderland of knickknacks! It was amazing how many holiday decorations she would put out, no matter what holiday it was, but Christmas was always especially exuberant! Everywhere you looked, you saw Christmas! I often wondered where in the world Uncle Jack stored all of those decorations! On the few times I was able to visit when there wasn't a holiday in sight, she would still be displaying her many collections. I remember mushrooms the most for some reason, (they were everywhere!) but she had many other collections as well.
I was in Missouri at my dad's home this last Christmas and heard Aunt Connie had broken her leg and was in the hospital, which made me very sad knowing this was her favorite day of the year. We called her to tell her "Merry Christmas" and of course she was in great spirits and cracking jokes and put a smile on my face once again! Rest in Peace Aunt Connie, you were a very loving person, and I hope you know you were loved as well by all of us!

Connie was the kind of neighbor everyone should be blessed to have. The second day we moved in, she was over with a huge, delicious chocolate cake. I was so impressed with her thoughtfulness and she was so easy to talk to. I loved her enthusiam for Christmas and all of her decorations. If you wanted to get in the Christmas spirit then just a visit to her home would put you there! We will miss her dearly! Fred & Kathy Klinkhammer
