She was a member of the First Lutheran Church of Somerville, Somerville Rotary Club, Caldwell Burleson County Lions Club and a past director of the Burleson County Fair Association. Connie particularly loved the fair parade, creative living and poultry divisions of the fair.

Connie never met a stranger and greeted everyone with “hey baby” or “how are you doing honey”. If she saw you more than once, she would tell you she loved you.

Family was the most important thing to Connie. She loved her children and grandchildren more than words could express. To her family and friends, she was known as “Nonnie”. She loved shopping, camping, vacationing at the Texas Coast in Rockport, slot machines and George Strait.
