Connie Marie English, 69

Connie Marie English, 69, devoted and loving mother, grandmother, sister and aunt, entered the Kingdom of Heaven Saturday, Aug. 31, 2013, surrounded by family and friends in her home in Warrensburg, Mo. She was born Oct. 17, 1943 in Caliente, Nev., daughter of Geraldine and Donald Wilson.
On Oct. 28, 1962, Connie married the love of her life, Claud J. English, in Carson City Nev. They shared 45 years together, residing in Douglas County since 1973. Connie loved to garden, care for her animals, collect Barbie’s, tell stories, watch her ID shows, sit on the porch enjoying her precious flowers and the occasionally 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, Nev., Geri Brackman and husband, Spencer, of Lake Lotawana, Mo., Crystal Sabas, of Warrensburg, Mo., and Chad English and wife, Laverna, of Theodosia and Missouri; 12 grandchildren, Jade, Ashley, Stephan, Janel, Brittany, Weston, Cameron, Trystan, Kaci, Dakoda, Savannah, and Sydni; 10 great-grandchildren, Levi, Hunter, London, Payden, Skylar, Logan, Xander, Avery, Laikyn, Miley; her sister, Charlotte Bradshaw and her husband, Keith and her sister, Carol Blankenship, of Emmitt, Idaho; and a host of other relatives and friends.
Memorial service will be held Sunday Sept. 8, at Ava Assembly of God, 1005 SW 4th Ave., Ava, Mo., at 2 p.m., with Pastor Buddy Boyd officiating.
