Connie started in banking, then went onto the Chalet Ski Shop, Emily’s Home Access, and Redlon & Johnson Kohler Showroom as she put it “going from skis, to gifts to toilets”.

John and Connie built a camp at Sugarloaf which the whole family loved and spent many wonderful years. She also loved golf and though “not very good” she managed to get worse, but enjoyed it greatly. She also loved to read and garden.

Connie is predeceased by her husband, John; parents, Eric and Mildred Adde; sister, Barbara Adde Mullen Levine; and nephew, Michael E. Mullen. John’s family, Dr. and Mrs. Walter F.W. Hay; and his brothers, Walter Jr., R. Channing and H. Graham Hay.

Gordon Hay; niece, Suzanne G. Adde-Mullen and her dear, dear friend of 60 years, Nadine F. Blake. Connie also wanted to send a “thank you” for all the friendships both long and short formed over the years.
