Mace, Connie Jean -
Bolivar - Mrs. Connie Mace, age 75 of Flemington, MO, passed away Tuesday, April 16, 2019, at Citizens Memorial Hospital Bolivar, MO. She was born December 31, 1943, to Floyd Washington and Jean (DeVol) Heaslet.
Connie was united in marriage to Thomas Mace June 10, 1961, in Auzsa, CA, and to this union three children were born. Thomas for the last few years was dependent upon Connie up until his death February 4, 2019. Thomas was a self-taught gunsmith and a very hard worker, and found it very hard to be dependent upon anyone after having worked countless hours over the years in his gun shop and as a machinist for Pachmayer.
Connie had a love for animals and her family; she was a self-less person. She enjoyed roses and hummingbirds. When she shot guns she was a good shot, and had to be to run the gun shop!
Connie is preceded in death by her parents; her husband of 57 years Thomas Mace; a grandson Jason Ruesch; a granddaughter Madison Mace; and two brothers and one sister.
She is survived by her three children: Tammy Ruesch and husband Mike of Bolivar, MO, Linda Heathman of Flemington, MO, and Thomas Mace, Jr. and his wife Kristina of Temecula, CA; 11 grandchildren and
5 -1/2 great grandchildren; as well as many other relatives and friends.
According to Connie’s wishes her body will be cremated. A private family gathering will be held at a later date. Online condolences may be made at: www.greenlawnfuneralhome.com. Arrangements have been entrusted to Pitts Chapel Bolivar, MO.
