Constance is to be remembered for her devout Christian faith, love of family and friends, and her passion for music. For over 60 years she devoted her life to St. Aloysius Church as sacristan and seamstress, principal organist, choir director, music instructor at St Aloysius School, and music minister-liturgist. During her faithful service she held many leadership and organizational positions in the New Life Funeral Choir, CCD Instructor, East Liverpool FISH Organization, Christian Family Movement, Parish Council, Catholic Daughters of America, Altar and Rosary Society, and Catholic Women’s Club.
