Connie lived a wonderful life on the East Side of St. Paul with a strong belief in family, religion, and love. She belonged to Sacred Heart Parish her entire life and sent all four of her children to Catholic schools. With Neil by her side, she created a loving household environment where she held multiple family gatherings and celebrated every holiday complete with all the decorations to fill the house with joy. Her house at Christmas time was truly something to witness and the mandatory singing of Christmas songs will never be forgotten. Connie’s heart was broken when her beloved Susan succumbed to cancer in 1991 but she firmly believes she will be reunited with Susan in heaven and her heart will be whole again. Memorials preferred to St. Vincent DePaul through Sacred Heart Church.
