Connie Lynn Howe

Connie Lynn Howe, a proud veteran of the US Navy, went to be with Jesus on Sunday, February 18, 2024, with her family by her side.

Connie was born on July 2, 1948, to Russell and Dorothy Howe in Amarillo, Texas. She was the eldest of four to Lorrie, Lisa and Tim. After her graduation from Tascosa High School in Amarillo, Connie set out on her own to explore her many interests. One of her goals was to enlist in the Navy which she accomplished, but due to an injury, was honorably discharged.

Connie loved to travel and found homesteads in several other states where she mostly worked in real estate. During this time, she found the one place she loved the most, Hawaii. The ocean there would probably have been her final destination had she not decided to move home. She chose to be closer to her sisters and brother after the death of their parents in 1987.

Connie was a fun spirited soul who took on many passions. She loved to laugh and be silly, making others laugh along with her. In this, she found much joy.

Also, if you would have asked her, she would have told you she is a connoisseur in food and drink. Before her illness took over, she loved to hike, camp and fish in the mountains. But most of all, Connie was a fervent lover of animals of all kinds. Her furry pets were always considered valuable members of the family.

Connie was preceded in death by her father, Russell E. Howe and wife Lois Howe; her mother, Dorothy H. Martin and husband Bill E. Martin; a brother, Timothy Howe; a stepbrother, Jerry Don Martin and her beloved dogs and cats.

She is survived by her sisters, Lorrie Taylor, Lisa Bjork (Ronald); 3 stepsisters; Sharon Martin McCurdy, Suzy Whisenhunt (Mike), Cindy Spencer O’Hair (Kirk); many nieces and nephews and her beloved kitty, Piper.

A Celebration of Life service date is pending.

    I cherish the time with Connie when she visited me in Hawaii. I wish she would’ve stayed, i know my pup Pasha loved her too. I knew she had been ill, but her death took me aback, so sorry she passed. I met Connie when i was in the Navy as an Ensign, and we kept in touch over all these yrs. I’m very sad, especially for her kitty who i knew she loved so much. I’m grateful Connie’s sister gave me the bad news, and so sorry for the loss for her family.
