Connie was a school pal of mine. She was friendly and kind to all and made sure no one was left out. Her optimism and sense of humor drew others to her. She had to have become a glorious teacher as she was gleaning these beautiful gifts in her early years. I loved being around her as I'm sure her students and all influenced by her must have as well.

Connie was my son, Bruce's teacher at H. Guy Child. She was a wonderful person. I also taught with her mother at Club Heights. Both were such nice women and fine teachers.

I am so sorry to hear of the passing of your mom. She was such a delight to be around. My first conversation with your mom was when she called me to be a substitute for her class.
Instantly knew that she was a wonderful and fun person. Sending prayers and my thoughts to you and your families.
