    I worked with Connie for many years at AP&P and always admired her quick wit, welcoming personality, her generous spirit and her laughter, it was so contagious. Connie always talked about her daughters with such love and it carried over to the agents she worked with. She watched out for them and would help in anyway she could to make their load less burdensome. My heart goes out to all that loved her and I hope all the memories she shared and made with you help bring comfort during the coming days. She was one of a kind and will be missed by so many.

    I absolutely love and adore Connie. I began working with her many years ago at Duane’s Foodtown. Later while she was working at AP&P, I went to work for the courts and we’d often visit coming into the building or on our way out. My oldest daughter took part in the Cinderella pageant while Connie was serving our community in this capacity. Connie was so friendly and outgoing. I loved her laugh and her smile lit up the room. I love the picture you chose for her obituary, it really depicts this special lady who will always hold a place in my heart. I’m sending love and prayers to all of her family.

    You forget what was said or done but you never forget how someone makes you feel. Connie always made you feel better after talking with her. Her quick wit and laughter helped lighten a very difficult work load and environment. She truly cared and took really good care of her agents thereby earning their love and respect and that of other co-workers. May you find comfort in your memories and in carrying on her legacy of love and sharing a smile and your laughter because Connie had the greatest love and laugh. Sending you prayers and love.
