Obituary of Connie Sutter
Constance (Connie) Patricia Sutter was born on November 20, 1956 in Westmount, Quebec. She passed away on September 23, 2019 at the age of 62, after a year-long battle with a malignant brain tumour.
Connie married Allan on July 14, 1976 in Cornwall Ontario, where they lived for one year before moving back to the farm at Lougheed. Throughout the years, Connie was very active in the community and the Nazarene church. She volunteered at the local food bank, 4-H Beef Club, coaching minor ball and the Hardisty Communities in Bloom. Connie was best known for Connie’s Greenhouse. She ran her business on the farm for 24 years and loved meeting and visiting with all her customers. In 2014, Connie decided to close her greenhouse and do her favorite job, being a Grandma. Her grandchildren were her pride and joy. Family has always been the most important thing in her life.
Connie will be forever loved by Allan, her husband of 43 years, her daughter Carrie (Todd) and their children Gabriel, Benjamin and Joshua; and her son Curtis (Anjuli) and their children Vera, Oliver and Wyatt. Sadly missed by three sisters; Jennifer Brown-Major (Brian), Sheela St. Louis (Daryl Smith), Laura Brown (Narendra Budhia), three brothers; Christopher Bachand-Lauko (Pride Bagde), James Deneault (Melanie Tomczak) and Richard Brown (Donna); her beloved mother-in-law Doris Swanson, brother-in-law Garry Sutter (Sheila) and sister-in-law Kathy Ellis (Tony). She also leaves behind numerous nieces and nephews and many close friends.
Pre-deceased by her parents Richard Campbell Brown and Jeannine Marie Estelle Bachand-Rowland, and her father-in-law, Louis Murray Swanson.
Connie will be remembered for her strong will, enduring faith, compassion for others and her love of family and friends. She was an inspiration to us all.
A funeral service will be held at 2:00 p.m. on Monday, September 30th at the Sedgewick Nazarene Church. Memorial donations may be made to the Compassion House Foundation, Brain Tumour Foundation of Canada, Hardisty Hospital Auxiliary or a charity of your choice.
