Connie was such a kind-hearted and funny person, whom I got to know the best as an Activities Assistant at the Sarah Todd Memorial Home. She would participate in most of the activities, and whenever I took her out for a smoke break, she would tell me all these funny and interesting stories about her family life. I am very sorry that I never had a chance to say goodbye to her :(

Bless you Connie!!!  You were such a nice person, so loving, and such a character, so funny.  You always made us laugh and it warmed our hearts to be around you.  You're in Heaven now, joining the rest of your family and friends that had gone before you. We're going to miss you, but we've many warm and loving memories of you to keep in our hearts.  Love you!!  Rest in Peace, your pain is gone.  You're an Angel now.

Please know that we all stand with you today even though we're far away. Mom especially wanted you to know she wishes she could be there, so I hope you can feel her presence across the miles. As a child, I remember being in awe of my identical twin cousins--you were always both so beautiful, your tennis shoes somehow always stayed white, your clothes were never wrinkled, and your hair was always perfectly in place, while I was usually a hot mess. It was mesmerizing to see mirror images and I could never, ever tell you apart. Even though one of you had a mole or freckle, I never could remember which one. 😊 It was always fun to see you and I remember the good times and hold those memories dear. My heart goes out to you all in your time of loss and you are in my thoughts and prayers. Rest peacefully, dear Connie. Love, Brenda Cvetko and family, Courtney, Steve, Cameron and Olivia Kiser 💕

Vonnie, Jim, Tim and Russ and families, I was saddened to see of Connie's passing. May God give you strength to get through this time.With sincere sympathy, Beth Myers Stambaugh

Sweet cousin Connie will be dearly missed.  Although we only got to see her every once in awhile, we were always made to feel right at home.  She was a fabulous cook too!  I loved the house she lived in with the big back porch.  One special memory I have is her attending a Croatian picnic with us and we were always on the dance floor.  RIP sweet Connie.  Our love and prayers to the family.  May special memories of good times with Connie bring you a smile when you need it most.  Love, Debi, Lynn, and the Gillette family.

Sorry to read that Connie has passed.  I met her at her home when my children were younger and delivered the paper to her.  She is such a beautiful person!!!  My condolences to her family . . .

I have fond memories of bowling with Connie, Vonnie and their mother, Hazel.  Such fun times with these precious ladies.  My condolences to all the family.  May you feel the peace and strength of the Lord  and treasure your memories as you grieve your loss.
