She graduated with her high school diploma and an LPN degree on the same day. She worked as a nurse for many years. Her true love, however, was her work in clowning. Connie brought joy to many people at parties and corporate events as a professional clown. Connie lived in Newnan and Fayetteville for a time but spent the last 15 years of her life in Griffin, Georgia.

Connie enjoyed antiquing and finding treasures in thrift stores. She was a collector of all things miniature. She was a spiritual person and a longtime member of Limestone Baptist Church in Cochran, Georgia. She was adventurous by nature and a worldwide traveler. She visited parts of Africa and Europe, among other locations. Connie was known to say, “Good girls go to Heaven, bad girls go everywhere.”
