They traveled all over the United States and did two overseas tours, one to Germany the second to the Panama Canal. This lead to visiting many more countries.

After retirement from the service, they continued to travel and discovered boat cruises, taking their granddaughters on many adventures with them. She loved to knit and made many slippers and gave them to staff members at many doctors’ offices. She was a part of a knitting group that met on Mondays at Crochet & Knit.

Connie was preceded in death by her parents and her daughter, Susan, and Susan’s infant son. She leaves behind her husband, Frank Savoy, of 55 years; her daughter, Patricia Welter and husband, Paul; her granddaughters, Brandi and Britni and her great-granddaughter, Pearl.
