    So sorry for your loss. We enjoyed getting to know Connie and Jim during their years in Shell Rock. We have many happy, crazy memories of them. Connie was a go-getter, always ready to do something fun!
    Our deepest sympathy to her family.

    So sorry that we were not able to make it to Connie’s service. Karl and I had so many fun times with your parents. Connie was the most organized person I knew..maybe 4 girls had something to do with that. She loved being active and having fun. Our sympathy to all of you.
