I have so many wonderful memories of Connie. When my mother and I moved to Wilton to be near her family, I was 9 years old, she was 15. She immediately took me under her wing, as I knew no one. We always had fun, and through the years we really tried to stay in touch. But, as usual, we got busy with our own stuff, and kind of lost touch for awhile. Bruce and I went to visit Connie numerous times later in years after our kids were grown and gone, and we would get caught up. We 3 went to visit Uncle Robert one time, he always was so much fun to be with, and of course we had to have lobsters! On the way through Wilton, she and I made Bruce stop, and we got out and walked through town, talking about so many memories that we each had. We saw where we each had lived, where her Dad's bakery had been, etc. What fun!

She was very dear to me, I loved her, too, and my heart goes out to the family, my thoughts are with you all.

Love Always,
Cousin Barb

I remember a big smile throughout the years that I've known her. Through that smile was warm and sincere laughter. Just in that she was, is, and will be a gift when we remember.

Mom was a special lady whom loved her 5 children, many grandchildren & great grandchildren with all her heart💜.
I will never forget how hard she fought to live because she did not want to leave her family 💜She insisted to live alone in her house and was the strongest person I ever knew. I reached for my phone to call you today 💔
I Love You Mom & Will Always Miss You😘
