My sympathy to her family. Connie was a bestie back in our early school days kindergarten through 2nd grade at the old Green Acres School House and then on to Harrison School, Williams, and ultimately West. She gave me piano lessons after school (Green Acres School). She was quite accomplished for her age. She also taught me sign language. Her brother was deaf so Connie was fluent in signing. So sad to hear of her passing. She knew me as Gilly.
