Feb 2, 1920 – March 17, 2012.
Connie was born in Rochester, Kent just east of London in 1920 to William and Emma Green. She moved to Trail with her family in 1925. She graduated from high school in Trail and subsequently attended Trail Business College. She then worked at the old Trail Tadanac Hospital until 1945 when she married Jim Mauchline.
They moved to Rossland as soon as they were married and remained there until 1997 when they returned to ‘civilization’ in Shaver’s Bench.
Connie was active all her years in Rossland with St. Andrew’s United Church and on her return to Trail with the Trail United Church. In addition, she enjoyed square dancing with Jim and playing bridge with her close friends. Connie worked at Carberry’s flower shop for many years. She said her fondest memories were of days spent at Christina Lake over some thirty years with her children, grandchildren and with her brother Bert Green and his wife Rose who lived right next door with their children and grandchildren.
She will be deeply missed by her children; son Brian (Sharon) Mauchline and daughter Corinne Bridgett; her grandchildren: Keri (Mike) Sanderman, Greg Bridgett and his fiancée Julie Teichroeb, Amanda and Shawna Mauchline; her step-grandchildren Sean (Anita) Stevens, Jason and Ryan (Shelley) Stevens; her great-grandson Joshua Sanderman and her step-great grandchildren Gregory Stevens, Ronan, Benen and Nyla Stevens. Connie was eagerly awaiting the birth of her next great-grandchild due on March 20th. Connie is also survived by her sister-in-law Rose Green and several nieces and nephews.
Connie was predeceased by her beloved husband Jim in 2002, her son-in-law Robb in 2002, and her brother Bert in 2010.
The family would like to thank the nurses and staff at the Trail Regional hospital for the care she received the last week of her life. Also a special thank you to Dr. Wilson.
A Memorial Service will be held on Thursday, March 22, 2012 at 10:30 am at the Trail United Church with Reverend Keith Simmonds, celebrant. Bill Clark of Alternatives Funeral and Cremation Services™ has been entrusted with arrangements.
