10/25/14 —– Constance “Connie” Delores Grzych

Constance “Connie” Delores Grzych, age 82 of Manchester, Tennessee, passed away on October 25, 2014 at the Medical Center of Manchester.

She was preceded in death by her parents, the late Edward Borowski and Leona Kowalski Borowski.

She is survived by her husband of nearly sixty five years, Joseph R. Grzych of Manchester, TN; daughter, Diane Nunley and her husband James of Hillsboro, TN; son, Michael Grzych and his wife Cherie of Michigan; grandchildren, Michael and Hayley Grzych of Michigan; brothers, Joseph (Marty) Palumbo of Michigan and Samuel (Vicky) Palumbo of Nevada; sister, Carmella Hardin of Michigan; numerous nieces and nephews and a houseful of beloved cats.

Connie and Joe invested their lives in a small silk-screen business and in mid-life she achieved a life long goal of becoming a nurse. Her early years as an amateur radio operator and hobbyist writer helped develop the gift of gab, endearing her to patients and friends. She authored a weekly newsletter to “her boys” during Desert Storm and kept abreast of world events even after her physical disabilities confined her to home. An avid joy of cooking enhanced her gift of hospitality.

The family wishes to thank her doctors and the team of loving caregivers who made her final days comfortable and blessed.

Expressions of condolence may be made in her memory to the Coffee County Humane Society.

No public services are scheduled.
