Known to all as optimistic, charismatic, a doer and a leader, Connie recently turned 97 years young. Articulate and determined, Connie possesses the gifts of compassion and leadership, and commands the respect of all. As past president of Philoptochos, Connie continues to give her all to Philoptochos as well as to her community at large. Her family—sons, daughters in law, their children, and their children’s children! gather around her every moment possible—she is the true matriarch! Once again, “as old as Moses” is an achievable wish. May she live many more years and thrive.
