September 16, 1934 – June 24, 2024

Hilda “Connie” Correa Garza, 89, passed away peacefully on June 24, 2024, surrounded by her loving family.

Connie was born on September 16, 1934, in Harlingen,Texas, to Ricardo and Conceptión. Connie dedicated her life to raising her children,  working over five years for Home Interiors, many years working for
Audrey’s Gift Shop, and devoting her spare time volunteering at Mary Our Queen Church.

Connie is survived by her children: Rick (Beth), Rob, and Roxanna Garza Snyder; grandchildren: Lindsey, Courtney, Joe, Bryce, Brady, Nathan, Brennon, Molly, Paige, and Jackson; great- grandchildren: Rider, Lane, Henry; and many friends.

She was preceded in death by her parents; her devoted husband of 63 years, Joe; son, Randy; brothers, Bob and Ricardo.

Connie was known for her warm smile, generous spirit, and unwavering kindness. She had a passion for her flowers and her many roses, spending countless hours tending to her beautiful garden.

Connie, The Mary Our Queen-Lady of All Nations Praesidium, was founded in 1999 with Connie as the president, and then started the Junior Praesidium at Mary Our Queen-Our Lady. Connie stepped down as president in 2023, but stayed as an Active member; still finding time to lead the Saturday 5:30 Mass Rosary. She touched the lives of many with her compassion and dedication to helping others.

    Connie touched so many lives through her gentle and most faithful heart. She was so helpful with guiding us with starting our Junior Legion of Mary Praesidium at St. Mary’s, Bellevue. I will miss her so much but I will always hold the memories of her beautiful smile and inspirational friendship in my heart. Prayers for comfort and strength to all of her family including all of her dear friends of the Mary Our Queen Legion of Mary Praesidium and our Omaha Legion of Mary Curia members.

    As a long-time neighbor of Connie (& Joe), I was deeply saddened to learn of her passing. She was a remarkable lady and always found time to visit with me and my family. My deepest condolences to the family. May God Bless all of you.

    Connie and Joe were dear friends of my husband, Patrick, and me for many years. We enjoyed going out to dinner together
