    I attended school, played sports and graduated from HFHS with Connie. She always had high energy and a big smile! Ambitious, compassionate and friendly, it was a perfect fit that she would choose nursing and the airlines as professions. I enjoyed following posts about her travels and her family. Connie was a bright light in the world. My condolences to her family. Rest In Peace, friend.

    Oh how I loved Connie! When I started flying for Delta in 1999 in Cincinnati, Connie befriended me! She had an infectious laugh for sure! We knew everything about her son and her nephew. Her schedule was built around their sports and activities. She spoke so highly of her Dad. When Delta stopped flying from upstate NewYork to Cincinnati, Connie transferred to Atlanta! Last Friday I was working and my thoughts led me to a special flight I flew with
    Connie! I wondered why, now I know! Please accept my deepest sympathies for such a special woman ! Nikki Phelus

    My Dear Connie, You know how I much I loved you. You are a super wonderful person. The best mom to both guys.
    I am so sorry you or maybe I am wrong you & Linda are together again. But sorry I’m not that good miss you both more than you know. Hug and kiss my Linda Jeanne for me. I am not sure if she knows how my hearts broke. Now Cathy Benway is there with you too. There way too many of you there. Save room for me. Miss all of you oh too much.
