KING, AMY CONSTANCE

Long time Winfield and Okanagan Centre resident, Connie King passed away peacefully in Kelowna at age 97. She is survived by her daughter Joyce

sister Dorothy, and son

Connie was born in the Parish of Lumphanan, Scotland. At age 5 , she, with her family emigrated to Canada and lived at Fintry. Connie

had many fond memories of her time at Fintry, where she

and sister Dorothy rode their ponies to school at

Ewings Landing. She met and married her husband George in Vernon and in later years raised their family in Winfield. Connie worked for years in the office of the Vernon Fruit

Union- Woodsdale. In the 1950’s she and her friends were involved in the Women’s Institute that created and published the original Winfield Calendar and those same friends were avid bridge players for years. In 1974 Connie and George moved from their orchard in Winfield and spent their

retirement years in Okanagan Centre. Connie will be

remembered for her quick wit, feistiness, and unwavering loyalty to her family and friends. The family would like

to give thanks to the staff at the Ethel Glen Residence in Cottonwoods, for all their love and kindness.

There will be no service by Connie’s request. Those wishing may make a donation to The Lake Country Museum
