It is with great sadness we announce the passing of Connie Mary Evelyn Bokenfohr on January 18, 2021, after a courageous battle with cancer.

Left to cherish her memory are her daughters Quinn (Ross), Nova, and Tess (Ryan), her dog Gus, her sisters Lorna and Debbie, her parents Ernie and Evelyn, and her nieces, nephews and extended family and friends.

Connie was a free spirit who was on a journey of healing, joy and enlightenment. She enjoyed all projects from crafting to landscaping her yard. Connie loved her animals and the walks they went on. She was passionate about travelling and had an admiration for local artists. Connie found great comfort in her students with whom she shared her wisdom and nurtured their journeys. She taught those around her to be proud and speak their truth loudly.

As per Connie’s wishes, there is no funeral planned, however, a celebration of life will be held at a later date.

In lieu of flowers, please consider donating to the Hereditary Breast and Ovarian Cancer Society.

  1. My deepest sympathy in the loss of Connie! She was an amazing woman! The band trips her and I chaperoned were some of the best times. We literally laughed our asses off, that we couldn’t breathe. The both of us often talked about how our greatest accomplishments were our children! Let the memories of your mom help you though these tough days ahead! She will always be with you! ❤️

  2. I am so sorry Quinn and Tess – your mom was such a light and joy in the world. Hugs to you and to Gus! Condolences to your entire family.

  11. Was sorry to hear of Connie’s passing.
    Our heartfelt condolences to her family, loved friends and all who she touched.
    Cherish the memories, hold her love in your hearts.

  12. Being Connies neighbor for the last 12 years has been a true blessing…. we respected each other’s space but also always enjoyed a “sincere” chat / smile and talks of upcoming yard improvements…. Gus always pulling her over to get his back scratched👌
    I think I only upset her twice (if more she didn’t let on)…. trimming her front grass edges completely wrong and one time a small trim on the tree – both never happened again😳😳
    Her spirit and care for others was real and infectious…. Connie made a positive difference👌👌
    Peace to the girls, Gus and family🙏🙏

  13. Sincere condolences to Connie’s family and close friends.
    Connie was a well-known and celebrated member of Talkabout Wholistic. We will miss her gravity, her wisdom and her stunning, welcoming smile.

  14. My sincere condolences to Connie’s family and friends. I first met Connie about 15 years ago at a monthly drumming circle and was immediately struck by her friendly, positive, outgoing personality and her many creative gifts. She was a woman of deep spirituality and insight and it was a real pleasure to know her. I’m sorry she has left this world too soon.

  15. Connie reminded me to always take time for myself. Drumming, singing and howling at the moon together was the best. I will miss you Connie! I will think of always as the brightest star in the sky. So long for now til we meet again.

    Deepest condolences to the family and all who knew this amazing warm hearted woman.

  16. Connie, I can still see your smiling face, welcoming me with open arms in your house. That image is so vivid. I saw the obituary on June 15th only after trying to reach out to you through text, phone msgs, emails.

    My sincere condolences to Connie’s family and friends.
