Freeman High School.


As one close friend said, "Connie was a loving wife and mother not only to her 3 boys, but to all the neighborhood children and the kids that came into the Short Pump Middle School Library. She could 'make' or 'fix' anything around the house (her father taught her very well), could grow anything in the yard and loved helping everyone."


The family will receive friends and guests at Woody Funeral Home-Parham, 1771 N. Parham Rd, Henrico, VA 23229 from 12:00 (noon) to 2:00 pm on Saturday, May 20th. Please come to see the family and dress is casual. In lieu of flowers or memorial donations, please send something to your local American Lung Association or Society
