Bob and Connie moved to their farm near Mukwonago in 1974 and have lived there since. Connie worked for many years at Pewaukee Veterinary Service, which is owned by her oldest sons, Randy and Jeff. Connie was devoted to her family and was a very proud and loving mother of five and grandmother of 14 grandchildren and six great-grandchildren.
