    Connie was always a sweet and kind person so sorry for the families loss

  2. Dwane Wills, Overland Park, KS Says:

    Condolences to Connie’s family on her passing. I met her back in the 1970’s when I was a branch manager for Anchor Savings in Shawnee. Our association continued through the Johnson County Board of Realtors. She was a delightful person to be around.

  3. Mrs. Sharon (Charlton) and Thomas Soetaert Says:

    My mother (Mary Alice (Keating) Charlton was always fond of her first cousin, Connie, and Connie’s other siblings. I was saddened to read of her passing. The family names were very familiar in pleasant conversations at our home in Shawnee. (Including “Aunt Bess”, who would have been Connie’s mother.) Blessings and peace extended to all the family during this time of loss and memories. (Mary Nunnink)(Betty Nunnink).
