    Connie was wonderful to work with at Coventry. She will be missed in this world. God bless her and may she rest in peace.

  2. Molly and Garrett Bachtel and family

    Dear Jimmy, Jennifer, Brook, Susanah and all,

    So sorry for your loss. Aunt Connie was a wonderful person and I treasure the time we lived in Yorktown when I was in middle school and high school and got to see you all more often. Also connecting in subsequent years on visits back to Yorktown with my own kids as an adult was really special. Connie and Jimmy always made time to meet up with our crew even if our visit was brief or short notice. I hope all your fond memories of your time with your mom make the griefing process ahead a bit easier. Surely she is with God and in perfect peace but missing you all, as she loved you so much. You will meet again. Sending lots of love and prayers from the Bachtels in South India. Sorry we can’t make it back for her service.

    T. Oliver contacted me and told me about Connie.
    It may seem unusual after so many years, but I remember some wonderful times together.
    I’m always saddened to hear of a friend’s death, even if the friendship is from long ago.
    Know that you and your family are in my prayers.
    May Connie’s soul rest in peace and may God grant you and your family strength as you grieve.
    Tom Turner

    I worked with Connie at Coventry. She was such a fun and caring lady. She loved talking about her children and grandkids. She loved coordinating luncheon events at the school with the other paras. ❤️ helping the children and teachers. I have great memories of that time. My prayers are with the family.
