Following retirement Connie enjoyed traveling to Texas often to visit her children and granddaughters and to Puerto Rico on trips with her cousins.

She was proceeded in death by her parents O’Neal and Annie Lynn (Moland) Bobo and her first husband of 17 years, Maxie R. Frederick. Connie will forever be loved and remembered by her daughter Missy Frederick Tate (John); her son Chris Frederick (Christina); her two granddaughters, Cameron and Samantha Tate; her husband of 28 years, Zachary Heath and her four siblings: Jerry Bobo (Rev, ret), Sue Peppers, Elaine Wiggins and Philip Bobo.

I am thankful for the memories that I have of Connie. She was beautiful inside and out. She loved people and never met a stranger. Her life revolved around her precious children and grandchildren as well as Zach and her extended family. Missy and Chris, I know that you miss her daily and that she is waiting on you in Heaven.

Connie and I were friends for years while she and I were neighbors and co workers at AUM. Her smile was infectious and her personality was always happy and content. She will always be remembered by that sweet smile and southern charm she carried. I will forever be grateful I knew her and loved her. She was a beautiful lady in more ways than one!!!!
