Miss Connie was very welcoming when we moved in across the street from her. We were neighbors for 13 years and she always had a smile and a big hug to share. We were fortunate to meet and become good friends with her daughter Kim and her friend Sue. She will always hold a special place in our hearts.💕

I worked with Connie at Yulee Elementary from 1969 until 1983. I really enjoyed having Connie in my classroom and the students loved her. She was such a sweet lady and we had some good laughs. She will be missed.
