Connie was a light and a joy in every life she encountered. Connie took delight in doing the little things in life. She was easily pleased by things as small as a pen and tablet, sunglasses, new bag, or even used envelopes from the workshop. Even though Connie faced many adversities in life, she was a fighter and beat the odds over and over again. Connie was a mover and a shaker. She started her moving with a quick scoot across the floor…the family isn’t sure who would win a scoot race now, Connie or Paisley. She eventually was able to walk and was often seen pushing her baby buggy up and down the living room floor. A few years later, she beat the odds again and was taught to ride a bike up and down the streets of Kit Carson by Tony. You would frequently find her bolting down the street to “Herbies” to grab her bag of Cheetos, pop and candy bar. She loved them; as Connie would say, “It’s good for my stomach!”
Connie attended Kit Carson School for 12 years and in 1988 she moved to Trinidad to the Madison Group Home at Las Animas County Rehab where she worked and lived until she passed. While living in Trinidad, Connie built a second family in the staff and kids that she lived and worked with. She had many special people that loved and cared for her and built close bonds with in her time there. The family is eternally grateful for the love and care that she received in her 32 years at the group home.
Connie always enjoyed her trips home over the Holiday’s and through the summer to visit family. Connie loved to crank the music on her trips home. You had to be really sneaky if you were going to get in turned down, as she would reach over and crank the volume and get back to clicking her tongue and tapping to the beat. When she came home, you would frequently hear “workshop closed”. She had a routine when she came. She made sure to get Lizzy to get her a Pepsi from Mary’s Market, check the mail, take a trip to the pens to check the cows and “horsey’s”, and a trip to the cemetery to check mom and dad’s grave.
Connie had a love for music and dancing. You would find her in the middle of Grandma’s living room floor shaking her booty, tapping her hand, singing, and ending the performance with a slap to the butt, a kick in the air and drop to the floor with a giant “Whoop Deee Do!” Some of Connie’s favorite songs were “Walking after Midnight”, “Connie-O”, and “Santa Clause is Coming to Town”, or any other song by Patsy Cline, any classic country or Christmas carols. In fact, Christmas was Connie’s favorite time of year. She loved waiting for Santa, and nothing was better than seeing the delight on Connie’s face and sparkle in her eye on Christmas Eve when Santa visited her. She would sit for hours starring out the window looking for Santa’s sleigh and listening for the sleigh bells. When he arrived, you better make sure to be out of her path, as she would bolt to find her loot.
Connie will always be remembered for her one liners. She loved to be teased, and her first response would always be, “Don’t you do that!” or “Heeeeeyyyyyy, I got a sore foot ya know.” She did not meet a man that she didn’t lovingly refer to as “That Boy” or “Old Man.”
Connie brought a lot of love and joy to everyone’s life and was a true blessing to all.
“God gave this child to you to guide,
To love, to walk thru life beside.
A little child so full of charms,
To fill a pair of loving arms.
God picked you out because He knew,
How safe His child would be with you.”
