Constance "Connie" Elaine Miller (80) of Zephyrhills, Florida, passed away on August 8, 2020, due to long term health problems.

  • I was just thinking of Aunt Connie the other day, I really miss her. She was so talented and creative. My Mom and Connie were always into something fun and new. From beautiful Christmas ornaments to purses made from plastic bags, so much talent. I loved to see what they were working on.  So many memories of Connie at my mom's,  coffee and cards and lots and lots of laughs   Aunt Connie would always take me out all over Tampa to her favorite karaoke joints. She was an amazing woman and she is greatly missed. We love you Aunt Connie
