Constance Harris

April 12, 1949 — February 10, 2024

Constance Reed Harris 74, moved to her heavenly home on Saturday, February 10, 2024. Waiting for her were her parents, Peter and Lynne Reed and her husband, George.

Connie was born in Boston on April 12, 1949. She was a lively, gregarious little girl who was always up to something. Her mother said that she would get Connie ready for church, go to help her brother, David, get ready and come back to find Connie covered in mud. She was helping to make pies!

Connie loved to sing. She was in the cast of several productions at Montclair High School and the Montclair Operatta Club. She was regularly a star at Karaoke nights around the city of San Diego where she made her home. She could belt out Leslie Gore's "It's My Party" or cover Barbra Streisand's "Love Comes From The Most Unexpected Places" and bring the house down, but her favorite song was" The Rainbow Connection".

When Connie was in her early twenties, she was in much demand as a Plus size model when that was a new thing. With her beautiful curly hair, perfect skin, and infectious smile she was a natural beauty.

Marrying George on May 16, 1986, she moved with him to Gunbarrel City and became known as "the tag lady" of Henderson County. Connie and George loved to play Mr. and Mrs. Claus for the City of Seven Points where they moved in 2005. There she met her true family, Jimmy and Heidi Bonk and their children, Sarah, Samantha, and Sean. They affectionately called her, "Miss Connie".

This quote from Jonathan Livingston Seagull by Richard Bach sums up Connie's love for Heidi and James and theirs for her. "The bond that links your true family is not one of blood, but of respect and joy in each other's life. Rarely do members of one family grow up under the same roof".

Connie is survived by her brother David and his wife Susie of Brunswick, Maine. Also, a step-daughter, Leslie, step-grandchildren, Zack, Danielle and Kayla, 6 step-great grandchildren and 6 step-great-great grandchildren.

There will be a private family service. Tribute donations in Connie's honor may be made to the Feral Friends Network.
