She graduated Perryville High School to go into nurse’s training but, she met the man of her dreams. Not only was Connie a housewife and mother, she was a staunch supporter of every one of her husband’s endeavors. This meant his success as a two term State Legislator, his entrepreneurial quest into Insurance, Real Estate, and Appraisals as well as all of his subsequent campaigns and civic involvement. She, herself, was an active participant in civic matters such as President of the Jaycee-ettes, on the board of Louisville Gardens, President and Chaplain of the Gideon Auxiliary and taught Sunday School for years. She was a member of Highview Baptist Church for 54 years. Connie loved to bowl, she loved participating in her children and grandchildren’s sports and activities. She was a spark which will continue to light a path for those whose lives she touched.

Her Funeral Service is 2pm Monday at Fern Creek Funeral Home, 5406 Bardstown Rd, with burial in Penn Run Memorial Park (Louisville). Visitation is 12-5pm on Sunday and after 12pm on Monday until the time of the service at the funeral home.
