Connie had tremendous faith in God. She loved family traditions, music and the Yankees especially Jeter. She was a billing coordinator and loyal employee of Chiesa Shahinian & Giantomasi in their West Orange Office. She touched many lives there over the years and was so committed that she worked up until 3 months ago.
Connie will be sadly missed by loving sister and brother-in-law, Annette and Phil Bevere. Devoted niece and Godchild, Danielle Bevere. Dear nephew and niece, Louis and Fabiane Bevere. As well as special “step-sis” Karen Paulercio, many friends and generations of cousins most of whom called her Aunt Connie.
