Connie passed away peacefully with her daughter by her side at the Meaford Long Term Care Centre on Wednesday, May 18, 2022 at the age of 87.
Connie was predeceased by her beloved husband, Andy, in September 2021.
She was the much loved mother of Marjie and Steven, grandmother of Catie (Andre), and Dylan, Gabbi and Jenna, and great grandmother of 4.
Connie had a very rich and satisfying life and was never afraid to try new things. She went from a very rewarding career in banking in the Niagara Region, to buying 3 Motels with Andy, which were all further north. By the time they bought their 3rd Motel in Meaford, Connie decided she would like to be a tour escort and travel worked for Hanover Holiday Tours for the next 20 years, travelling world-wide. Connie adored her family and would always come home literally loaded down with gifts for everyone. She was truly loved and will be deeply missed.
She spent her last 3 years, along with Andy, at the Meaford Long Term Care Centre., after developing sudden health issues. She made the best of her situation, and thoroughly enjoyed her time there. She enjoyed partaking in many activities, and became dear friends with every one of the staff. She truly thought of them as family.
