Connie graduated from LaSalle High School in 1975, and at 18 years of age began her employment at Teachers Credit Union (TCU). She was employed at TCU for 47 years as the longest tenured employee and served as the Executive Director Corporate Communication. Connie lived with selfless and unconditional love for others, especially her family, and nothing brought her more joy than spending time with them. Friday nights in the summer were reserved for her and her husband to enjoy their beautiful backyard and winter Friday nights you’d find her courtside cheering on the Washington Panthers.
Connie was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in July 2021. Although she lost her battle to cancer, she’ll forever be remembered for her strength, grace, and beauty.
