Growing up in Long Lake with the Vanacores, Connie was a source of light humor, frank reality, no nonsense advice - straight up!! I suppose that's why we all loved hanging out together - having endless poker games, water-skiing day and night, bondfires , or gathered around the family table drawing in a table covered with paper. She would casually provide life lessons and great snacks. She was a source of grounded essence that we were all attracted to and benefited from. Her dogs were always gorgeous and as she was of her children, she was also so proud of them. I love her and will carry with me always wonderful memories of her. Rest in peace Constance and love and comfort to her family in mourning.
