Connie loved her morning coffee, spending time with family, reading her Bible and watching the local news and weather.  Her hands were rarely still, as she loved sewing, cooking and canning vegetables from the summer garden.  She also loved to attend church services at Paden Baptist Church, where she was a devoted member for many years.

“Connie Jean,” as she was lovingly called by many, was a long-time employee of Blue Bell and worked several years at Iuka Hospital in the lab.  Later, she was employed by North Mississippi Elderly Services where she served the community driving a bus to the Tishomingo State Park until she retired at the age of 77 after twenty-three years of service.

Earl Barron officiating. Burial will be in Tishomingo City Cemetery.  Visitation will be from 10 a.m. until service time at Paden Baptist Church.  Deaton Funeral Home, Belmont, MS will be in charge of arrangements.

She was preceded in death in 1982 by her loving husband-Audie House; four brothers-Clatus McNatt, Lakeman McNatt (Mary), Thomas McNatt (Verna) and Bill McNatt; one grandson-in-law-Buddy McKinney.
