Morgan All of us at Cheshire will miss you Connie. You were always the happiest person to see in the morning and still the happiest at night…. You were a special person to all of us. You always had the cutest hair styles and the cutest nighties. Rest In Peace Connie ❤️ Your Cheshire family loves you.
Ellen Woolf (Toenders)My brother Ben, his wife Wendy, my sister Rose, myself and her nieces and nephews Garrett, Derek, Mary and Carmen, will miss Connie terribly. She was always such a happy soul. It didn’t take much to get her laughing and then you couldn’t stop her giggling for ages. Despite her disability, she managed to have a very full, independent and happy life. She loved to create, especially her weaving (which I have many examples of) and contribute in any way she could to the community. Connie never complained about her situation and was so grateful for her wonderful friends, helpers and her devoted and loving husband Brian, who she loved so dearly. Its difficult to imagine she is no longer with us but I take comfort in knowing she joins our mom and dad in peace.
