Connie Fay Beulen, age 61, of Oshkosh, passed away unexpectedly in her home on Friday, Dec 15. She was born to David and Joyce (Carpenter) Beulen on Jan. 15, 1962. Connie graduated from Oshkosh North High School in 1980 and spent her early years in the Girl Scouts and as Color Guard in the Oshkosh Drum and Bugle Corp. She got a job in the bakery at Carlson’s Food and attended FCTI to become an Interior Designer. She eventually became a machine operator at Rockwell/Meritor Inc until it closed. She continued to work in the metal fabricating industry at Brickham Stamping Co. and then at Webbex Machining Co. in Neenah. She also worked for awhile at Spring Brook Tavern.
Connie loved crafting, gardening, sewing, embroidering, and especially baking and cooking. Our family would gather at her house on many special occasions where she would have a beautifully set table (dinning or picnic) ready for us to be entertained. For years people would go to her house for haircuts and many times would end up having a meal there as well. This year’s Christmas Chocolates were next on her list and ready to be made. Connie was last employed at 4-Imprint as an embroiderer, where her friends were planning for her retirement party next month. She also had an extremely huge heart for the many cats and dogs that were in her life.
Connie was preceded in death by her father. She is survived by three older brothers Gene (Tina) Beulen, Menasha, Michael Beulen, Oshkosh and Keith (Ellen) The Villages Fla., and many nieces and nephews.
She is also survived by two dogs an Australian Labradoodle, Winston, and a Double Doodle, Gus, who are missing Connie very much. They have, however, seem to have found a good new home.
A funeral service officiated by All Saints Lutheran Church, where Connie was a member, will be held at Konrad-Behlman Funeral Home (100 Lake point Dr. Oshkosh) on Friday, December 29, at 1:00. Visitation will be 11:00-until time of the service.
