As the wife of a United Methodist minister, Connie lived in several places in Oklahoma, including Norman, Altus, and Antlers before moving to Oklahoma City. She later returned to OCU, where she obtained a Masters in Early Childhood Education and worked as a Montessori preschool teacher. Later Connie began working with Don in the management of the family business, Stewardship Resources. While she played many different roles throughout her life, her children and grandchildren think of her first and foremost as a great mom and grandmother.Connie spent many years working with children in church and educational settings, and even after she began her struggle with dementia, she relished being around children and the things they enjoy. She would have loved the idea that people might donate in her honor to an organization that helps children. Memorial gifts may be made to Boys and Girls Club of Oklahoma County or the children's charity of your choice. The family would like to express their appreciation to the staff of Epworth Villa's Long Term Care unit and Assisted Living Memory Care, as well as the staff of Epworth at Home Hospice Care.
