On February 9, 1951, Connie Grube was born to Walter F. and Louise M. Edington Grube. The oldest of four siblings, Michael, Janice, and Jerry, Connie graduated from RHS in 1969. She attended Indiana State University where she made lifelong friendships that she cherished. She loved babysitting for her niece and nephews and taking their pictures. For many years she was the family photographer and historian. She provided the family with hundreds of pictures through the years. Her cat, TH, was her favorite companion.
She was an avid reader and so enjoyed the library. When she could no longer visit the library, the library came to her, bringing her a new stack of books every month. She loved listening to music, especially her old favorite, Andy Williams. She moved to Logansport after working at Hart Shaffer and Marx for 15 years, then on to Winamac. Most recently she was a resident of Vernon Health and Rehabilitation in Wabash.
