Connie graduated from East High School in 1945. She worked at Goodyear Aerospace and then in the Akron Public School System for 20 years. Connie survived polio in her 20s. She loved sports and was an avid golfer and bowler. She was still bowling at the age of 92. Connie loved politics. She was very proud of having voted for Harry Truman in her first election.  Connie also enjoyed reading especially autobiographies. Connie was a fan of all Cleveland sports teams and she almost never missed a professional golf tournament at Firestone County Club. Getting to attend an Indians World Series game with her daughter was a thrill. She loved to travel, especially by train, taking several cross country trips. She loved going to the beach. She greatly enjoyed New Smyrna Beach, FL and North Myrtle Beach, SC. She was an active member of the Firestone Park Prime Timers and the Jednota Slovak Club. She volunteered for many years with the Akron Marathon.
