Connie grew up in Parsons, Kansas and attended Labette County High School before coming to Emporia where she graduated with a Bachelor's degree from Emporia State University (then KSTC). As a RN, her nursing career lasted over 30 years, first at Newman Hospital before retiring from Emporia Public Schools.

After graduation, she met and married the love of her life, Loren, on January 9, 1947 in Cottonwood Falls, Kansas. Together, they spent 61 years full of love and laughter with friends and family. They fished and skied Kahola Lake and farmed north of Emporia, where most family dinners ended with homemade ice cream. Upon retirement they began full time RV-ing, traveling to 36 states and National Parks while becoming winter Texans. They eventually settled in Bentonville, near their daughter.

Known for her home cooking and gardening, she was a master quilter and financial whiz who became a cutthroat cardplayer when the sun went down. Always ready for fun, she was an ace shuffle board and cornhole opponent. She was an avid reader, card player, and a tough little bowler.

Above all, her love of family is unmatched. We hope to continue her lasting legacy of love, joy, and never-ending kindness.
