"Connie and I arrived at PlayMakers at the same time, fall of 2007. This would have been our tenth year together. She was my birthday buddy, which we only discovered 4 or 5 years ago. Born on the same day in December just a few hours apart, she in Texas and I in North Carolina. I was older but she was good about not reminding me of that. We always tried to make time to mark the day together. I will miss her loud laughing voice, always upbeat, her insightfulness about the art that we make, her quiet diligence in supporting PlayMakers in every way possible and her endless list of recommended reading from which I will continue to derive pleasure for some time to come. I think of you often, friend."
"Opening nights at PlayMakers will just not be the same without Connie smiling and working the room and spreading her love of theater. I miss her terribly. She was a phenomenal colleague and a friend, who I had the pleasure of working with for the last nine years. She was professional, talented, always in tune to meeting deadlines, and truly passionate about her job. She was also fun, and funny, and I hope to live my own life in the spirit of Connie's -- treasuring every day. Rest in peace my dear friend."
"When I was 19 and a student in Greensboro, I had the privilege of interning for Connie at Triad Stage. That was my first introduction to the world of theater marketing, and I learned so much from that experience. When I moved back to North Carolina in 2010 Connie again gave me a job, this time as her assistant at PlayMakers, and I continued to grow professionally with her guidance. When I returned to PlayMakers in 2015, I worked closely with Connie once again. She has been a colleague and friend through much of my career, and has always been a dedicated champion and lover of the arts. Her passion and dedication will be greatly missed."
"I have just made a gift to PlayMakers in Connie's memory. She loved her job, she loved the theater, and her passion for both was infectious. She was a pleasure to work with. She will be missed by so many of us."
"Still so heartbroken by Connie's passing. I knew her only briefly, but she always brought out the best in me and in all of those around her. She was a vital and passionate person whose spirit will be a part of everything I do."
