Connie was a waitress at L & L Café, Ottawa and Reno’s in Ottawa.  She baby sat for many years for family and friends.  She worked for almost ten years at MAC Fasteners, Ottawa, as an assembly line worker.

Connie loved to fish.  She enjoyed being out in nature and fishing was the perfect opportunity for her to enjoy the beauty of the outdoors.  She dearly loved her grandchildren and great grandchildren, always finding extra time for them to spend with her.  One way she showed her love for her entire family was through her cooking.  She was an incredible cook and made many wonderful meals for her loved ones but she was most famous in her family for her baking, especially her cookies.
