OBITUARY

Constance Beauvais Sincock

June 1, 1937December 27, 2020

Constance “Connie” Beauvais Sincock, 83, of Macon, GA passed away from COVID-19 on December 27th, 2020. Connie was born in Springfield, MA, to Edouard and Dorothea Beauvais. She grew up in West Springfield, Massachusetts, and had three brothers, Richard, David, and Edouard “Beau” Beauvais. She was part of a large extended French-Canadian family on her father’s side, and the granddaughter of Presbyterian Missionaries who served in Africa, while her grandfather later taught at Princeton. She graduated from the University of Connecticut in 1958 with a Bachelor of Arts in history. She enjoyed participating in her sorority, Kappa Kappa Gamma, writing skits, plays, and lyrics. She continued to be active with KKG after graduation, remaining close with sorority sisters, and participating with local chapters, even attending the national convention as representative several times.

She married Thomas “Tom” Sincock in 1958 in West Springfield, MA. Oh, how she loved him, and he wept with joy hearing her voice just days before her death. This was a defining and devoted relationship for both; they were inseparable. When they were first married, she worked as a reporter at the Worcester Gazette, and as a 3rd grade teacher while Tom pursued his Master of Science degree. They moved to Simsbury, CT, in 1961, where they lived for more than 50 years and raised two children, until moving to Macon, GA, to join their daughter, Elizabeth Young, in 2015. Connie was a widely known and recognized artist, and even painted the watercolor which the Phoenix Mutual Insurance Company used for its Christmas Card one year. As a freelance artist and teacher, she shared her talent with many. She used her talents and keen sense of design in the marketing department of Westledge Associates Realty in Simsbury, CT, and Merrill Lynch Realty, in West Hartford, CT. She volunteered at the New Britain Museum of American Art, as well as at the Simsbury Public Library. She was a substitute teacher at Latimer Lane Elementary School for many years, forming relationships with kids into adulthood.

Connie was a passionate classical pianist. For many years she played duets weekly with friends including Jane Rouge, and Marjorie Taylor. She was well known for her fabulous gourmet cooking, and frequently hosted dinner parties, big and small, single-handedly pulling off “Recitals” in which she performed, but also prepared food for 20-30 people! Connie loved crosswords (and never cheated!) and playing bridge, an activity she missed greatly while social distancing this past year. She had an active mind and was committed to social justice, believing strongly in the American Constitution, and volunteering in organizations that promoted social equality, particularly Project Concern in Hartford, CT in the 1970s. Connie delighted in learning about people. She was curious and could see what was special in each person she came to know. She was able to warmly meet people where they were, connecting with family and with people of all walks of life.

Connie is survived by her dearly beloved husband, Tom, her son, Christopher and daughter in law, Martha Sincock, of Glastonbury, CT, as well as her grandchildren, Colin Sincock, and her daughter, Elizabeth Young, and son-in-law, Frank Kevin Young of Macon, GA, and their three children, Grace, Paul, and Adam, as well as her brothers and their wives, Phyllis Beauvais (Richard) of Watertown, CT, David and Carol Beauvais of Northampton, MA, Edouard “Beau” Beauvais and Pamela McCarthy of Goshen, MA and Denver, CO, and her nieces and nephews, Brett and Eric Fisher, Cassandra and Joel Beauvais, Justine and Nate Jasper, Vera Beauvais, Adele and Shag Drewery, and Colin and Corey Beauvais. She was predeceased by her brother, Richard Beauvais. She was immensely proud of her wildly creative brothers and brilliant sister-in-laws, her children, as well as her unique and brilliant nieces and nephews, and grandchildren.

She is so missed.

Connie and I spent many evenings on the front porch discussing things of mutual interests. We were so different, but our values were the same and we became good friends. I shall miss her very much. Tom, you have my deepest sympathy.

I have nothing but wonderful memories of Connie. Although we only shared one semester in the Kappa house, our bond was renewed many times over the years. Her tribute says it all. Connie was an amazing individual and a wonderful friend. My sympathy to Tom, Elizabeth, Christopher and all the family. Your loss is profound.
