CRESTON — Connie Sue McCombs, 70, passed away suddenly Friday, Nov. 5.
Connie and her husband, Garry, had been married 33 beautiful years and her son, Robert, was the light of her life. She worked as a chiropractic assistant and a personal poet before retirement. She loved spending time with her family. Her favorite job description was grandmother and recently great grandmother. She loved her family immensely and was very proud of them.
Connie in a few words was creative, compassionate, witty, fun and generous to a fault. She was affectionately known as the “gadget queen” because no matter what you needed or asked for, she could find it in her purse.
Connie was preceded in death by her mother, Vernis Kern and brother, Paul Kern.
She is survived by her husband, Garry of Creston; son, Robert (Renee) Shea of Genoa City, Wisconsin; three grandchildren: Amanda, Ashlee and Bradlee; one great grandson, Micah; two brothers: Gary Kern of Kenosha, Wisconsin and Robert Kern of Columbia, Tennessee; two sisters: Shari Phistry of Thompson’s Station, Tennessee and Ruth (Dan) Teige of Cornersville, Tennessee and numerous nieces and nephews.
