Connie Marie English
Connie Marie English, 69, devoted and loving mother, grandmother, sister and aunt, entered the Kingdom of Heaven Saturday, August 31, 2013, surrounded by family and friends in her home in Warrensburg, Missouri.
She was born October 17, 1943, in Caliente, Nevada, daughter of Geraldine and Donald Wilson.
On October 28, 1962, Connie married the love of her life, Claud J. English in Carson City, Nevada. They shared 45 years together residing in Douglas County since 1973. Connie loved to garden, care for her animals, collect Barbie Dolls, tell stories, watch her ID shows, sit on the porch enjoying her precious flowers and the occasional B-2 bombers flying overhead, and spending time with her family and friends. Her smile could light up a room and to know her was to truly love her.
She was preceded in death by her beloved husband, mother, father and brothers Doug Wilson and Jerry Wilson.
Connie is lovingly survived by her four children Christine Bender of Incline Village, Nevada, Geri Brackman and husband, Spencer, of Lake Lotawana, Missouri, Crystal Sabas of Warrensburg, Missouri and Chad English and wife, Lavern of Theodosia, Missouri; grandchildren, Jade, Ashley, Stephan, Janel, Brittany, Weston, Cameron, Trystan, Kaci, Dakota, Savannah and Sydni; great-grandchildren Levi, Hunter, London, Payden, Skylar, Logan, Xander, Avery, Laikyn, Miley; her sisters Charlotte Bradshaw and husband Keith of Challis, Idaho, Carol Blankenship of Emmett, Idaho; and a host of other relatives and friends.
