Connie was born in Providence, RI, the daughter of Salvatore C. and Felicia Rose (Tripodi) Misale. Connie was a graduate of Quinsigamond College and New Hampshire College. She worked as an LPN in Psychiatric nursing, was a floral arranger and worked in sales. Connie had always hoped to become an educator and while that dream did not become an official reality, she was a teacher in many aspects of her life, teaching her children, grandchildren, nieces and nephews to lead, serve and to play. She lived her whole life in the Grafton hill section of Worcester where she raised her children.
Connie lived her entire life in service to others. She was a long time member of All Saints Church where she was a lay minister and Christian Ed. Director. She was a 50 year member of the Civil Air Patrol, Auxiliary of the U.S. Air Force, and commander of the Worcester squadron. Her community service included volunteering with the Worcester Senior Center, Friendly House, Cub Scouts and the PTA. Connie was very talented in floral design, sewing, knitting and crocheting.
