Connie Sue (Voorhies) Seymour, 58
Connie was born in Anaconda, Montana on March 30th, 1961 to Tom and Shirley Voorhies. She was blessed with three beautiful daughters, Connie Jo, Heather, and Frankie. She was very proud of the fact that she graduated from Carroll College with her B.A in Nursing and was an R.N. She worked several years as an ER nurse and traveling nurse. Connie passionately loved all animals and rescued many in her lifetime earning her the nickname “Connie Doolittle”. She enjoyed gardening especially planting flowers, collecting Mickey Mouse things, mountain biking, camping, fishing, billiards and reading books. She loved her family and will be greatly missed by her grandsons, Chandon, Elijah, Caleb, Jaxx, and Jayven. Connie is finally at peace after a long battle with MS. She passed away on January 22, 2020, in her sleep at home due to complications of MS. Connie never met a stranger, she was outspoken, opinionated and we loved her.
