Connie Sue Pettry, born December 19, 1954 in Charleston, West Virginia went home to be with Christ our Lord and Savior on Wednesday, August 22, 2018.

She was a daughter, sister, cousin, aunt, mother, and best friend to all who knew her.

Connie is survived by her one and only daughter, Dena LoRaine Pettry, whom she loved dearly. She was determined to be the best mom, devoted to Dena’s accomplishments and wanted to witness them all. Connie helped her persevere through an Associate in Arts, General Studies degree; as well as two Associate in Science degrees, Paralegal degrees for Litigation and Transactions as well as her Bachelor’s in Science for Legal Studies from the University of Central Florida.

Connie lived and died for Dena. During her last year, she was continuously hospitalized for Acute Myeloid Leukemia, with Myelodysplastic syndrome, requiring blood transfusions to sustain life. She stayed fighting until the end of the world for more time with her daughter. When she was a little short and living on borrowed time and blood; when doctors said she had days to live, she told them that she would make it to her daughter’s college graduation and her birthday. She and God worked it out and she made it to the last major milestones she could, passing only four days after her birthday.
