Connie Lynn Schlegel (Snook), 69, passed away unexpectedly Sunday, Feb. 25, 2018, at her home in Worthington, Ohio.
She was born Sept. 19, 1948, in Newton, to Dee and Ted Snook.
She graduated from Newton High School and attended Northwest Missouri State University. She excelled in the information technology field, earning certifications in both Lawson and Peoplesoft.
Those who knew Connie will never forget her infectious passion for musicals, singing and dancing. She would often be found listening to music and choreographing dance routines around the house and even for school productions. She was extremely creative and found joy in making unique, personalized gifts for others.
She loved and adored her grandchildren. Together they played games, cards and watched movies. She enjoyed watching them perform and “bragging” to others about all of their activities. She created special memories with all of her nieces and nephews over the years. Connie treasured the relationships she had with her sister, Linda, and her brother, Tim. They had a special bond and made time to talk often, if not daily. She loved Ohio State Football and #51. Connie knew how to make people feel loved and special.
She had a generous heart and will forever be missed.
