Loving Wife, Mom, and Nana was reunited with her mom, dad and brother Larry on November 20, 2012. Connie was born on July 21, 1952 in Klamath Falls, Oregon to Richard and Marjorie Brown. They moved to Riddle where she attended grade school and graduated from Riddle High School. She married the love of her life Scott on July 11, 1970. They traveled while Scott was in the Air Force. After he got out he went to college and she went to work. They settled in Riddle and raised their three kids, Andrea, Carmen, and Scotty. Family was everything to her. She loved spending time with her family doing anything from BBQ’s, camping, OSU game get-togethers, birthdays, and special holidays. She also loved to spend time on the Oregon coast. She had a special place in her heart for her grandkids and would always ask them “Who loves you?” Their reply would be “Nana do!” They would ask her “how much?” and she would say “to the moon and back.” Everybody knew how caring and compassionate she was. She would do anything she could to help anyone who needed it. She will be greatly missed by all but we are all greatly appreciative of our Lord and Savior for taking care of her now. Mom, we will always love you and you will be forever in our hearts. She is survived by her husband Scott; daughters Andrea Aker of Riddle, Carmen Graf and her husband Derek of Myrtle Creek, and son Scott Aker and his wife Jennifer of Roseburg; grandkids, James Michael, Jordan, Mason, Meghan, Cayden, Marlee, Annabelle, and Hallee; brothers, Dick, Tony; and sister Donna. Preceded in death by her mom, dad, and brother Larry. There will be a celebration birthday in remembrance of her on July 20, 2013 at 1 p.m. at the Myrtle Creek Baptist Church. All are welcome to come.
