Connie was born in Hastings, Nebraska and died 98 years later in Sutton Nebraska, thirty miles away from her birth site. Although this seems like a short trip, Connie, with her husband Paul, traveled worldwide with trips to Europe and all of the lower forty-eight states on their epic road trips.

Her parents were Jesse M. Marsh of Missouri and Laura Holland, also from Missouri. Connie ‘s stepmother was Erma Marsh. Connie graduated from Hastings High School and attended Hastings College where she studied bookkeeping and secretarial arts.

Connie’s met her soul mate Paul while they were both attending Hastings College. On June 30, 1940, they were married in Grand Island, Nebraska. Together they had two sons; Paul of St. Michaels, MD and Bruce of Boulder, CO.

Together Connie and Paul lived in Hemmingford, NE, Brighton, CO, Millikan, CO and Cortez, CO. During their time in Colorado Connie provided a boarding house environment to the many single male school teachers that worked with Paul. While living in Cortez Paul was drafted into the army, leaving Connie to raise their young son by herself. After Paul returned from the war in 1947, they moved to Sutton, NE.

Connie worked as a legal secretary for Bottorf and Maser LLC and later was secretary to the Dean of Students at Hastings College.

She was a member of the Federated Church of Sutton. Connie is past president and current member of Chapter BH PEO.

Connie is survived by Paul and Beverly Woller of St. Michaels, MD and Bruce and Nel Woller of Boulder, CO as well as six grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren.

Two sisters, Helen Easterbrook and Millie Davidson and her husband Paul, preceded her in death.

Paul and Connie were such a inspiration when I went to school. I enjoyed visiting with Connie during her later years whenever I came back to Sutton for visiting or business. She will be missed.

Paul and Bruce,
You know how important your parents were to me. From school to church choir to the potluck gang and morning coffee girls....We enjoyed staying in touch over the years. I had a nice visit with your mom in August when I was out for the eclipse. She was upbeat and proud to show off her family.
I will miss her, too. Wanda
