I grew up on the same street as Connie and her family . So many special memories growing up there. We all knew each other and brought our kids back each year for Halloween. Seeing how we all have grown with our families. This was a very special family with dad [Neil Jones] and my two sisters! My thoughts and prayers are with the family. She will be missed.

I grew up on the same street as Connie and her family and lived in the same ward. We had such an amazing street with so many kids to play with. Connie will always be remembered by her kindness, her beautiful smile, her great laugh!

We were able to reconnect as adults at a chance meeting in St. George and then I would stop by her work as I traveled to and from SLC. Family was everything to her! She will be missed!

I worked with Connie for many years and loved her quick with, welcoming personality and her laughter, it was so contagious. She adored her daughters and grandkids, they were the light of her life. She worked with many agents over the years and always did whatever she could to lighten their burden. I hope all the wonderful memories she shared and made with her loved ones will bring comfort in the coming days. Connie will be missed by so many.
