Constance “Connie” Marie Nunns, age 80 of Shalersville, passed away Tuesday, July 28, 2020, at the Western Reserve David Simpson Hospice House in Cleveland.

She was born April 1, 1940, in Cleveland, Ohio, to parents Joseph and Mary Grace (Palumbo) Trusso. Connie graduated from John Adams High School in 1959, and was the head cook for Crestwood Middle School for many years until her recent retirement.

Faith and family were paramount in Connie’s life. She began each day with Bible study and was a devoted member of the Ravenna Assembly of God. On June 3, 1961, she married her beloved husband Gene, and the couple had four children, and also raised their niece. She later cherished her time as Grammy to her grandkids. A close third in Connie’s life was cooking. It has been proclaimed that she was the best cook in Portage County.

Connie was preceded in death by her parents, her infant daughter Lynn, and her sister JoAnn Bias.

My Aunt Connie was one of the most genuine loving people, she greeted me each time I was with her, with all the love anyone could ever want. She shared her love for family and God with everyone she met. I was so blessed to have called her my Aunt.

For the past 17 years we could not have asked for a better neighbor. Summer evenings sharing conversations at the picnic table and swing won't be the same. The warm zucchini bread would come over to our house before Gene even got his. Always thinking of others, Connie you will be missed.

WE HAVE LIVED NEXT DOOR TO CONNIE AND GENE FOR OVER 20 YEARS.
CONNIE WAS LIKE A MOTHER TO ME AFTER MINE PASSED AND SHE HELPED MY DAD TRANSITION TO LIVING WITH US. SHE CAME OVER WITH BAKED GOODS AND HALF OF THE TIME DAD WOULD NOT TELL US THAT THE ZUCCHINI BREAD HAD ARRIVED UNTIL IT WAS JUST ABOUT GONE.
SHE WAS ALWAYS THERE TO LEND AN EAR TO OUR PROBLEMS AND NEVER PASSED JUDGMENT. WE TALKED FLOWERS, JOBS AND GETTING ON IN LIFE.
CONNIE WAS POSITIVE AND QUICK TO LAUGH. AMONG OTHER THINGS, WE WILL MISS SEEING HER PUTTERING IN THE YARD AND CALLING FOR THE CATS. OUR LOVE AND PRAYS GO OUT TO GENE AND THE FAMILY.
