She was born March 31, 1950 in Peoria to the late Donald and Anita Graham Knabe. She married Dennis W. Dingledine on July 3, 1969 in Washington. He survives.
Also surviving are four children, Troy (Tonya) Dingledine, Dustin (Allison) Dingledine, Jason Dingledine, Amy Dingledine; 12 grandchildren, Drew, Cassandra (Brandon), Sierra, Raegan, Genna, Dade, Avery, Alex, David, Kendall, Alayia, Chase; one great-grandson, Ayden; one brother, Steve (Jeannine) Knabe; two sisters, Beth (Jim) Linsley, Kim (Ray) Roese; three brother-in-laws, David (Ellen) Dingledine, Dean Dingledine, Donald Dingledine; two sister-in-laws, Carol Donecker, Joyce Pacey; and several nieces and nephews.
Connie was a homemaker who loved spending time with her family and friends. Her kids and grandkids were the love of her life and would do anything for them, day or night. She loved her husband of 50 years and supported him in everything. She will be dearly missed by all who knew her.
She had a voice of gold and sang like an angel. She won state vocalist as a teen and was part of a group that made an album called “Young Folk”.
Connie had another love – deserts of any kind, and would eat them first many times before she ate. She would eat them for breakfast and before bed at night.
