Connie Martin (nee Smith)

September 7, 1951 – July 26, 2021
Connie passed away on July 26 at home in Courtenay with her husband by her side. She was born in Canso, Nova Scotia on Sept 7, 1951.
Connie always referred to herself as a Bluenoser. She followed her airforce husband through many postings including Comox, Baden-Soellingen, Cold Lake, Portage la Prairie, Dartmouth, Victoria and finally back to the Comox Valley. In the valley, Connie had several interesting jobs and her favorite was as a cashier at Quality Foods Courtenay. This job suited her well as she was such a pleasant person, always smiling and willing to take the time to talk.
Connie loved to travel and go on cruises and went on several trips over the years. When at home she loved to spend time with her dog Mimzy, and take her for walks. Most of our walks around the neighbourhood took quite a while as we stopped and visited with friends.
She loved all little children and had a special talent to make them smile just by talking to them. Her greatest joy for sure was her five grandchildren. She enjoyed nothing better than just watching them at play.
Even through sickness, she had a positive outlook on life and her smile warmed the hearts of many. Connie’s husband would like to thank his family, our great friends, our wonderful Dr. and the many nurses and home care workers that kept her comfortable.
She was predeceased by her father, Robert L Smith and her mother Evelyn Smith and brother-in-law Joseph (Ron) Segiun.
She is survived by her husband of 43 years, Dana, son Jonathan (Kira) of Campbell River, daughter Michele (Marcel) of Petawawa, ON, brothers Douglas Swaine (Jean) of Chilliwack, Bernie Smith (Joyce) of St. Albert, Harry (Sue) of Quesnel and sister Theresa Seguin from Lake Echo, NS, grandchildren Makayla, Luke, Nora, Madelaine, and Hannah and her loving dogs, Mimzy and Remington.
A Celebration of Life will be held on Aug 9th at 1pm at Piercy’s Mt. Washington Funeral Home.
Donations to the Comox Valley Hospice would be appreciated.
