As a young woman Connie loved spending time with her three boys and working as a Pepsi girl. After her boys were grown, Connie and John and spent most of their free time on their houseboat at Keystone Lake. After spending years at the lake, Connie's dream of having a little girl finally came true. John and Connie traded in the houseboat for hairbows and dollhouses. The rest of her life she dedicated to her daughter Melinda and later Melinda's three boys. The love and dedication Connie gave her family is something that will be missed dearly and will never be forgotten.
