Sending love and prayers to your family. Your mom was always kind to me and my brothers, even when we made it hard for her. She took me to the ocean for the very first time. That started a love of the water and beach. Will always be thankful for meeting and spending time with Connie.

I am so sorry for your loss. I adored Connie. I worked with her at Peerless many years ago when I was just out of college. She was always kind to me and we kept in touch annually through letters after I moved to Portland. I was lucky enough to have a chance to visit her when I was in Salt Lake in 2019. I’m so sorry I didn’t get a chance to see her again. All of a sudden it occurred to me that I didn’t get a Christmas card from her this year, and so I found her obituary. I didn’t know she had passed. I will miss her terribly.
