Connie last worked as an Administrative Assistant for the FAA at the Air Traffic Control tower in Norfolk, VA. She retired in March 2014 after a Federal civil service career of 32 years. She was a member of Virginia Beach Freewill Baptist Church and was married there in Jan. 1971.
Connie will always be remembered as a loving wife, mother, and friend. Her pleasures were simple but many: bowling, bingo, picnics, sunshine, flowers, humming birds at our feeders, picking crab and crab-legs, a really good meal, traveling and just being together with family. We will remember her infectious laugh, her loving smile and her beautiful green eyes.
