    So sorry to hear of losing Connie. She was such a spitfire of a nurse, and delightful to work alongside. I have very fond memories. Her family is in my thoughts.

    Connie was a very good person – fun, loving, fun-loving and full-spirited. She will be missed.

    I knew your mom thru my time as a volunteer at Hospice House. She was a kind, loving and generous person. She always had a smile for you and was a gift to all who knew her. Thank you for sharing her with all of us.

    I had the pleasure of working with Connie at Immanuel Medical Center . I always enjoyed her fun personality and her smile. She was a wonderful caring nurse to each patient she cared for. I will miss seeing her at our nurse get togethers.

    This is truly a sad moment. Had such good memories of Connie. Peace be with the family and rest assured Connie is now in a better and comforting place and will enjoy a better life again. God bless all of you.

      Thanks Bob. She swore to the end it should’ve been you and her. 😊

        To this very day I still think of what should have been.

    I am so sad to hear this news about Connie. As you know we worked together at the American Red Cross together and we stayed connected as friends for many years. When I remarried and moved to Texas we lost touch. We tried several times to get together when Dale and I would go back to Omaha but it never seemed to work out. Please know how much she meant to me as a friend and confidante. I am truly so very sorry for your loss. She touched so very many lives with her wonderful bubbling laugh. What joy she gave so many. Me included.
