Constance was often lovingly known as “Queen Connie”, a fashionista who presented herself with flair and great poise. She loved interior decorating, gardening and her beloved dog, Charlie. Her favorite time of year was always the fall and its foliage. She loved to celebrate family birthdays, cook outs and all family gatherings. She was especially close to her mom, Arlene. She frequently traveled and lived through out the country in her early adulthood, North Carolina, Missouri, Kansas, Colorado and Texas.
She graduated from New England School of Hair Design in 1987 and began practicing hair design at home. She also had work as an LNA at the Sullivan County Nursing Home for a period of time. She loved her family and friends; she spent her life surrounded by people who loved her sense of humor and her bold personality.
A graveside service will be held in Mountain View Cemetery on lower main street in Claremont, NH, on Saturday, January 23rd at 1 PM with Priscilla Hull officiating. The family welcomes all who knew and loved Connie to attend. Flowers may be sent in her name to Stringer Funeral Home.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic the funeral home and Bailey family ask all attending the graveside to abide with all regulations and please wear a mask and use social distancing.
