Connie Rae Sheets was born on April 12, 1954, in Saginaw, Michigan, to Jack and Nancy (Lewis) Sheets. She was a proud graduate of Arthur Hill High School. A proponent of education, Connie went on to receive both a bachelor’s and master’s degree. She was employed as a tool & die maker at General Motors, retiring after 26 years of loyal and dedicated service. She enjoyed playing piano, loved shopping, and was an avid reader. For over 30 years, camped in Lupton, Michigan, at the Lost Valley Campground where they created many lifelong memories. Connie’s little piece of heaven was entertaining others. Throughout her life she hosted many gatherings, but nothing could compare to her Kentucky Derby parties when she lived in Seven Lakes Florida. She will forever be remembered for her confidence and strong will, for her kind, loving, and big heart, and for truly living an amazing life filled with many beloved family and friends.
Surviving are her son, John (Christina) Palmer of Mount Pleasant; two step-grandchildren: Daymian and McKenzie Schutte of Mount Pleasant; parents, Jack and Nancy Sheets of Traverse City; brother, Rob (Lori) Sheets of Beulah; sister-in-law, Mary Sheets of MN.
