1926 – 2016
Constance “Connie” Marie Gallant, of Red Deer, Alberta, passed away peacefully into the arms of Jesus on November 14, 2016 at the Red Deer Regional Hospital with family by her side. She was 90 years old. Connie was born in Kelso Washington to Evert and Ethel Tisdale. Once she graduated from high school, life took her to California, Florida and Texas. In 1960, she and her husband moved their family to Alberta to try their hand at farming. In 1967 they moved to Red Deer where Connie resided until her death. She held a number of jobs and eventually settled into a 17 year career with the City of Red Deer, retiring in 1991. Connie enjoyed all things outdoors and love to “go” almost anywhere. She especially enjoyed golfing, fishing, skiing, gardening and travelling. She made friends wherever she went and will always be remembered for her smile, warmth, love of family and passion for life. She will be lovingly remembered by her daughters Lynn, Marilyn and Joni; eight grandchildren; 13 great-grandchildren, and numerous nieces and nephews. Connie was predeceased by her parents; brother Evert, sister Yvonne and sons Randy and David. At Connie’s request no service will be held. If desired, in lieu of flowers, donations can be sent to the Heart & Stroke Foundation of Alberta, 202, 5913 – 50 Ave. Red Deer AB T4N 4C4. Condolences to Connie’s family may be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
