Our Grandma Connie had love in abundance. Her love, attention, warmth, and encouragement made the world a brighter place for her friends and family.
She never met a stranger and she enjoyed trying new things. She was a voracious reader and fantastic cook.
Her candy dishes were always filled and her heart always open. Her life and love are worthy of admiration, emulation, and celebration. We love and miss you, Grandma!

Grandma Connie was a very kind, loving, and caring person. She always offered words of encouragement, gave many compliments, and offered her valued advice. She was the best grandma anyone can ask for. She is dancing on streets of gold in heaven right now and I look forward to the day I see her again. I love you grandma!
