She was a teacher most of her life. It all stated at Hagerstown Elementary School where she taught for eight years. She then taught at Florida Morningside University, Cavalry Chapel, and a few other places. Her love to teach was truly a gift.
Connie was a member of Joy Lutheran Church in Palm Bay, Florida and that is how she also became a member of WLCA. She loved to go to the Shepherd Center. Offered there were fun classes for people to take part in – Connie learned how to play bridge. She was musically talented too. In Jr. High, she played the piano for 1 ½ years and then when she grew older, she began to play the handbells at church. Knitting and reading were favorite pastimes of hers, as well as watching the Indiana Hoosiers play basketball and going to the gun range to fire at targets.

We will certainly miss you Connie. You were always such a happy person. You and Gary used to banter about penn state and Indiana state playing football. I find it humorous that we say goodbye to you on the day they play. Bet you’ll be watching from heaven.
