Clements

On September 02, 2014 the Lord opened his arms, said "Connie, its time come home".

We were blessed with 60 years of love and laughter but after an extended and hard fought illness we had to say goodbye.

Connie was born January 24, 1954 in Dayton, Texas to Ruben Lars Peters and Althia A. Howard Peters. She was the youngest of eight with two half-siblings so there was always lots of noise and people round. Connie excelled at writing & literature and became know for her short stories and poems.

She graduated from Dayton High School in 1972 and worked at Peoples Grocery as a butchers assistant. In 1973 she met the love of her life, Gene Clements and only three months later in August they married. In 41 years they hardly spent a full day apart. She made their house a home and welcomed all who stopped by with a big smile and cold iced tea.

She was strong willed and fought hard to stay with us but she's now reunited with those who were waiting for her in heaven. Her parents, her two half-siblings, her sister, Lois Scarbrough, her brother-in-law, Joe Smith and her granddog, Hyde.

She leaves behind to honor her memory, her husband, Gene Clements of Dayton,Tx., her son, Marshall Clements of Dayton, Tx., her daughter, Pamela Clements of Dayton, Tx., her granddogs, Ponce and Dusty. Sisters, Faye Smith of Dayton, Tx., Bonnie Norris of Madison, Tn., Margaret Hoffman and husband Otto of Hockley, Tx, brothers, Aubrey Peters and wife, Doris of Hardin, Tx., Maurice Peters of Dayton,Tx., Doyle Peters of Hull, Tx. and a host of other family and friends.
