  1. I was shocked and so sad when I read this today. We’ve been friends and playmates since I can remember. She was a wonderful friend! We laughed and had so much fun being playmates.I think all of us girls were a handful for our parents! We got to see each other a lot growing up. I got to spend a couple of hours with her after Roundup 2 years ago- we had a great visit! Jessie-Marion- Debbie- my heart breaks for you all. She was my friend from forever. My condolences and love to you and her family. Karen Hobbs Wagner

  5. Connie was one of my favorite people at Swisher Memorial Hospital. Her staff loved and respected her, as did all of the employees. She visited each patient to make sure the meal was satisfactory to them. She was extremely kind to my family when our daddy died. I prayed for her to have a healing miracle and now she has the best. Sympathy to Connie’s family and friends. I’ll miss her smile. Linda Gales
