Connie Sue Ober, age 64, of Sparta NC and formerly of Marlinton, WV passed away on November 10, 2021 at the Joan and Howard Woltz Hospice Home in Dobson, NC.
Connie was born in Ronceverte, WV on June 17, 1957 to the late Howard L. and Sarah Anne Grimmett Boggess. She was preceded in death by her husband, William Ober, three sisters, Velma J. Boggess, Sarah J. McElraft, Betty L. Boggess and a brother, Howard L. Boggess, Jr. Connie is survived by one sister, Princa “Patti” Cox (Larry) of Sparta, NC, and five brothers, Darrell (Jackie) of Rainelle, WV; Henry L. of Frankford, WV; John K. of White Sulphur Springs, WV; Bobby F. of Fairlea, WV; and John W. of Central City, KY as well as her stepson, Roger Ober (Kimberly) of Marlinton, WV. She is also survived by one step-grandson, numerous nieces and nephews.
Connie was a homemaker who rarely stayed home instead enjoying the scenic byways of her beloved West Virginia. She loved her cat, crafting and flowers. Although her health prevented her from learning to swim, she crossed every other item off her bucket list. Connie was cherished by many friends in WV and NC whom she gifted with her laughter and kindness. She was a constant companion to her husband, Bill and her sister, Betty. She was raised in the Methodist faith but most recently attended the Mountain View Assembly of God in Marlinton, WV and Mt. Zion United Methodist in Piney Creek, NC.
In keeping with Connie’s wishes, she will be cremated and there will be no services. The family would prefer this time be spent honoring Connie by helping a neighbor, lending a hand or revisiting a forgotten friendship.
Her family would like to extend their deepest gratitude to Carmella Combs, Joe and Mary Clendenin, Debbie Workman, Mountain Valley Hospice, Genesis Health Care, the staff at Joan and Howard Woltz Hospice Home and so many who have filled Connie’s days with joy. Her sister asks that no food be delivered to the home. Donations may be made to the Pocahontas County Family Resource Center, PO Box 3, Marlinton, WV 24954 or the Joan and Howard Woltz Hospice Home, 945 Zephyr Road, Dobson, NC 27017.
