Friendship gives us the courage to lift the blinds on our hearts.
To open up and show what we generally keep hidden from the rest of the world.

Connie Birthday Cake

Connie’s story begins 70 years ago when she was born to Walter and Camille (Williams) Smith.  She is the youngest of 4 siblings.  She grew up in Seville, Ohio where her family lived on a small farm.

Connie was employed by the city of Orrville and retired in 2005.  Not one to sit still she currently works part time at a boutique in Smithville.

Connie has always loved animals and her husband is the one who started her love for greyhounds when he decided to adopt a retired racer.  Blair said he was going to get a small female and came home with a rather large male who they named Bus.

The second grey they adopted was Silver, then came Lily. They also had 7 cats.  All 3 of they greys and cats have gone on to the bridge and now she has Drama and 2 different cats.

Connie is a very kind hearted, giving person.  She’s always been a good cook and loves to cook for her family, friends and co-workers.  Every year she invites a group of her friends in and makes lunch for them to celebrate her birthday.

In addition to her secretarial duties with OGGA, Connie is very active with her church where she is a member of the choir and the hand bell choir.

She is quite artistic, many years ago she learned how to work with stained glass and has made lamps, windows, stepping stones and many smaller items.  She enjoys making her own greeting cards and stamping and recently learned that she has a talent for drawing.
