Connie Otto


Mrs. Connie Connell Otto, 77, of Snyder, died Thursday, March 29, 2018 in Snyder.

Funeral service for Mrs. Otto was held at 10 a.m. today at Bell-Cypert-Seale Funeral Home with the Rev. Dave Blackwell officiating. Burial followed at Polar Cemetery.

Mrs. Otto was born on July 26, 1940 in Snyder to Wilson and Elizabeth (Smith) Connell. She married Mike Otto on May 6, 1989 in Snyder. Connie, fondly known as C.C. by family and friends, was a southern lady to the core, but could be filled with spunk and vinegar when necessary. She was never-endng faithful as a wife and mother. She took extra additions to the family, like daughters-in-law and grandchildren, as true blessings. She worked to fill get-togethers and holidays with fun, food and, most of all, love. Connie fought her long fight with Parkinson’s only to be able to spend extra time with her beloved “Mikey” and the rest of the family. Her guiding presence will ever influence the lives of the family and friends she touched.  

She was preceded in death by her parents and one daughter, Tana Springer.

She is survived by her husband, Mike Otto of Snyder; four sons, Ty Spring and his wife, Sherry, of Ocala, Fla., Thad Springer of Snyder, Thance Springer and his wife, Gale, of Anna and Bert Otto and his wife, Becky, of Big Spring; one sister, Betty Courtney and her husband, Ray, of Ruidoso, N.M.; and nine grandchildren, Ryon Springer, Will Springer, Vana Springer, Vail Springer, Vance Springer, Hayden Springer, Jacob Springer, Nolan Otto and Lora Otto.
