Connie Gurney born November 22, 1948 in Kermit, TX passed May 21, 2022 at her home surrounded by her family.
Beloved wife, mother, grandmother, great grandmother, daughter, sister and aunt, Connie loved Jesus and served Him all of her life as a Sunday school teacher and pianist. She was a faithful, loving wife to Joe for 54 years. She was a wonderful mother, making sure her children were well cared for and loved, and loved to spoil her grandchildren and great grandchildren as much as she could. Connie enjoyed many camping trips with her family, was very crafty and witty. We will all miss her sense of humor and her fierce strength that we admire.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Ralph and Beatrice Fogleman; her granddaughter, Mia Lynn Baxstrom; and great granddaughter, Rosealin Bea Gurney.
