Constance Augusta “Connie” Lemieux (née Page) died peacefully at her home on December 30, 2015 in Mesa, AZ at the age of 83.

Connie is survived by her husband, Romeo; son, Eric and his wife Suzanne; and grandchildren Luke and Connor. She is preceded in death by her seven brothers and sisters.

Connie was born on April 18th, 1932 in Northampton, MA to Philip and Lilian Page. She graduated from Westfield in 1954 with a degree in Education. She married Romeo, her high school sweetheart and an accomplished chef in 1956. After moving to Chicopee, MA, Connie began her teaching career at Fairview Memorial School. Over a number of years, the couple welcomed one son into their home and Connie set about teaching and loving him. Her two grandchildren remember her as a patient and loving grandmother who encouraged them to pursue their goals.

Connie was an educator. She cared for and loved all students that entered her classroom.  Connie pioneered one the first programs in Connecticut dedicated to the teaching of gifted children in the 1960’s.  She was the president of the CT chapter of Alpha Delta Kappa.  She spent 26 years teaching at Edgar H. Parkman School in Enfield CT where she retired in 1992 as Vice Principal.  Even in retirement she continued to teach, participating in a number of educational programs at All Saints Church in Mesa, AZ.

Connie was passionate about her work, her friends and, most importantly, her family. She loved to read and was an endless source of inspiration to those who knew her. Connie was a Lady Knight, often seen at her husband’s side cooking and baking at various church functions.

Viewing hours will be held on January 3rd at Mountain View funeral home from 6pm to 8pm. A funeral is scheduled for 10am, January 4th at All Saints Church in Mesa AZ, with a reception to follow at the Arizona Golf Resort – Annabel’s (425 S Power Rd, Mesa, AZ).  Fr. Robert Caruso will officiate the ceremony. All are welcome to attend and celebrate Connie’s life. The family asks that all persons reading this obituary who have small children in their family to buy a book and read it to them. There would be no better way to honor her memory. The family would like to thank all the “angels” at Hospice Family Care for their loving attention to Connie in her final days.

    Connie was one of my all time favorite colleagues at E. H. Parkman School and, quite simply, a truly wonderful woman. The fact that she laughed at many of my escapades, yet always had time to offer sage advice will be a legacy that will never be forgotten.
    My sincere condolences are offered to Fran and Eric along with the rest of her family members.
