I was saddened to see Connie's name here... I guess I missed the original posting... I remember many happy times at Stranahan where she and I shared a number of classes... and other activities.  She was always a steadfast friend and we will miss her.      Linda Lee Zanky Granger... 5/6/2020

I also went to Drake with Connie.  We joined the same sorority and there are many great memories of our time there together.

I grew up with Bobby Coffman. We were together from 1st Grade through 6th Grade. He was the tallest and I was the 2nd tallest. Connie told me what a wonderful husband he was to her and how terribly much she missed him.I was happy that Bobby had married such a sweet woman. He deserved someone like Connie.
