Connie was united in marriage to Frank Chavez on November 13, 1980, in Torrington, Wyoming.
Connie previously worked at Western Sugar, but she primarily dedicated her life to caring for others. She enjoyed listening to music and cooking delicious meals for her family and friends.
She was a devoted wife, mother, and grandmother. Connie nurtured her own family, while also opening her home to anyone in need. She was giving and in doing so, found a special kind of fulfillment. Earthly possessions were few for Connie, but her relationships with those close to her and the way she made them feel was priceless.
