Passing of Connie Houston

It is with extreme sadness that I advise you that Connie Houston of Vienna passed away over the weekend. Connie’s death was sudden and completely unexpected, as she was enjoying good health and a very busy summer, and she and her husband Jim were eagerly awaiting the birth of their first grandchild.
