Obituary

Connie Johnston, daughter of the late Medford and Ruby Bennett, was born in Poplar Bluff, Missouri on December 3, 1942, and left this earth while residing at The Lutheran Home in Cape Girardeau, Missouri at the age of 79.

Connie had lived in the Poplar Bluff and Puxico area all of her life.  She worked at several medical facilities in Poplar Bluff in different vocations and retired as an LPN from Lucy Lee Hospital after more than 20 years of service there working with patients ranging from newborn to elderly.  Connie was a member of the Temple Baptist Church in Poplar Bluff.  She enjoyed cooking, time with her family, and loved animals, but most of all she loved her grandchildren and spending time with them.
