She courageously fought a long battle with Inflammatory Breast Cancer and even though the cancer took her life too soon, she won the battle by the way she loved and lived her life. She will always be a shining example to all who knew her. She faced her life's challenges with courage, optimism, and confidence.
Connie was born May 17, 1952 in SLC, UT. Daughter of Kenneth James Browning (deceased) and Arlene Frint Browning. Graduated from Highland High School in 1970 and was actively involved in planning reunions for many years. After graduation she began a 50 year career in the Mortgage loan business, retiring in 2017. She worked hard and gave 100% to her job and being a loving mother, raising 2 daughters all on her own. She taught them to be strong and compassionate by her example.
Connie was always helping and caring for others. She loved her mother Arlene and shared her home with her for 30 years. She had a unique, supporting, and loyal relationship with her group of girlfriends that lasted from childhood and throughout her life. They raised their kids, played, and traveled together.
Connie spent most of her free time camping and was happiest in the mountains. She was very industrious and independent. She enjoyed taking care of her home and working in her yard. She enjoyed being with her family. She loved being a Nana and adored her grandkids. Her family was most important to her.
