To Connie’s family and friends, I am so sorry to hear of Connie’s passing. I was her hairstylist in Willard and enjoyed her so much when she came in. She would always bring a picture of a fun new haircut to try and it always matched her spunky personality! She always made me laugh and I feel blessed to have met her. She will be missed! Please know you are all in my thoughts and prayers during this time.
