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 daughter-in-laws and grandchildren, as a true blessings. She worked to fill get-togethers and holidays with fun, food and, most of all, love. Connie fought her long fight with Parkinsons 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.
