Connie’s creativity and industrious spirit shone through in everything she did. She poured her heart into sewing clothing for her kids that were truly expressions of love. Raising chickens, was a testament to Connie’s ability to be a successful entrepreneur. Her backyard was a bustling haven for these feathered friends. The fresh eggs they provided were a delightful treat for those in the community fortunate enough to savour their taste.
Another of Connie’s hobbies was creating stories for her soapbox column and word searches for the Taber Times newspaper. In her memory, let us celebrate her love for sewing, and her drive for success. Her legacy lives on through the threads of her creations, the clucking of her chickens, and the words she wove into puzzles and stories for the community to enjoy.
Connie’s biggest passions were her kids, grandkids and her church. She was a woman of extraordinary kindness. Her life was a testament to family, faith and community values. She was not just a Mother to her own children, but to hundreds of other hearts she touched with her warmth and compassion. She was a true guiding spirit with an abundance of wisdom.
Connie’s unwavering dedication to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints was a cornerstone of her life. Her faith was an inspiration to all who knew her. She found solace in her church community, where she served tirelessly, embodying the principles of love and service.
Let us celebrate Connie’s legacy of love and kindness, as it will forever be etched in our hearts. Her love and kindness knew no bounds.
If friends so desire, memorial tributes in Connie’s name may be made directly to the Taber and District Health Foundation, 4326 – 50 Avenue, Taber, Alberta T1G 1N9 (www.tdhf.ca).
