Connie is an accomplished horsewoman who loved to show her Quarter horses in Western Pleasure and Buggy Driving as well as trail ride all over the continental U.S. with Bill and their many friends. Connie is a retired Rural Mail Carrier and was the brainchild and operator of the Western Way Bed and Breakfast to whom she hosted locals and celebrities alike including many from all over the world and most with whom she maintained close ties even to her last days. She was an accomplished seamstress, gardener, cook, hostess, and devoted wife, mother and grandmother. She never complained during her final days and even with her last breaths was concerned about the well-being of her family and friends. She was an incredible force who touched many lives. She is and will be greatly missed.
