I worked with Connie at Westinghouse and she introduced me to riding horses. She was a very caring person and I'm sure she will be missed by her family and friends. I am sorry for your loss and send my condolences at this time.

I am so sorry to hear this. I did not know Connie well, but she was extremely loved by the Burgess family. My mother Debbie Fox loved her and she was a great friend. When my mom passed in September 2021, Connie was a great comfort to me during that time. She even reminded me in looks of my mom. I am so sorry for your family’s loss. She was definitely an angel here on earth as well.
