Most of Connie's career was spent working as an RN. She's an avid reader, Griz fan, grandkid sports cheerleader, and enjoys British and Australian tv dramas. Connie grew up in Butte ("Don't mess with a Butte Girl.") and we love her story about learning to knit:
"When I was 10 years old my friend Carol and I were allowed to take the bus from the 'flats' in Butte and go all the way to Hennessy's Department Store in Uptown Butte - quite an adventure for two 10 year old girls in the 1960's. Our teacher, Joan, was a very sweet English lady who gave the knitting classes. Classes were held in the mezzanine, where both the yarn AND book departments were at Hennessy's. We would knit until noon and then we went to Gamers to have lunch. It was a great place with wonderful food & baked goodies. When it came time to pay you took your tab and money to the till and rang it up yourself; it's still that way today. After lunch we would wander around uptown and go in and out of Five & Dime stores and various dress shops. Around 3:30 it was time to hop on the bus and head home. We were always excited for the next week's lesson."
