Connie was a kindred spirit; always enjoying nature year-round. In fall, her favorite of seasons, she would collect the fall leaves, not discarding a single one, for they were too beautiful.
She was an avid reader; her favorite to read were mystery novels. She loved the suspense and vigorous mental workout that ensued from it.
Most of her adult life she suffered from varicose veins, and chronic migraine headaches. She was diagnosed earlier this year with high blood pressure and type 2 diabetes; which she immediately started treatment.
Over the month of June she was hospitalized after an emergency surgery on her kidneys among having kidney infection, Gul bladder infection, Gul stones, and E. Coli.
During her recovery she suffered her first heart attack. She recovered soon after and was sent home. She resumed her normal routine as mother and small business owner with her husband Fred Dehen.
While at home she started to feel unwell. She could not eat, drink, or stand for too long. On June 29th she was admitted to the emergency room at Providence hospital. She stayed overnight and was to be released the following day. The following afternoon she suffered a second heart attack and doctors rushed her back to the ICU where she came back to us for 20 minutes before having a final heart attack ending her life.
She was a strong woman her whole life until the end. She is survived by her husband Fred, her three daughters Shineun, Choneun, Florence, and son Chonmon; along with her two cats Tiger and Snow. She is missed by all who loved her.
