She also liked square dancing, bowling, sewing and gardening. She was always busy!

One of her biggest joys were her show dogs, that was, of course, until she had grandkids! She also loved to travel, anywhere, but particularly, to the beach or a local casino. Connie enjoyed meeting up weekly with her friends for lunch and a visit
