Connie was born in Saskatchewan on June 11, 1953 and grew up in the town of Asquith. She moved to Kelowna in 1973 where she met her husband Gord. The two were married in 1977. Connie had three favourite men in her life: her husband Gord and her two sons Cody and Kyle. Connie also welcomed and loved her daughter-in-law Bretta, grandson Noah, and Kyle’s fiancée Carlee. Also survived by two brothers Larry (Brenda) and Mark (Anne) all of Saskatoon; her mother Wilma, father Mick; mother-in-law Margaret and father-in-law Geordie. There was never a more proud and loving wife, mother and grandmother than Connie. Her heart also reached out to the rest of her family, her uncountable number of friends, Mary Kay customers, and anyone else she could connect to. In the past year she renewed a passion for horseback riding which gave her great joy. Connie went to be with her Lord and Saviour Jesus early Saturday morning. The one who had taught her to love and give and serve took her home to wait for the rest of us. A memorial service will be held at 11:00 am Saturday, June 30, at First Baptist Church, 1309 Bernard Avenue, Kelowna with Pastor Jack Borchert officiating. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to Young Life Canada, #120 9440 – 202 Street, Langley, BC, V1M 4A6.
