A loving mother and peaceful, graceful presence, Constance Ramsey Gruendling passed away May 15, 2021 at the age of 78. Born September 6, 1943, Connie was a lifelong resident of Ligonier, PA. Beautiful and meticulously groomed, she had lovely blue eyes that sparkled when she smiled. A tireless and devoted mother who worked very hard to provide for
and give her children a wonderful life, she enjoyed the simple things in life; going to the farmer's market, planting her summer flowers, feeding the
birds and sitting on the porch chatting with her friends and family. Cooking, baking and decorating for the holidays were some of her favorite pastimes.
Connie was also an animal mom to Snoopy, Marshall, Charlie, Sid and Coco who she treated as part of her family. Her career was spent in accounts receivable at Rolling Rock Club, where she worked for 20 years
retiring in 2008. She is preceded in death by her parents James W. Ramsey and Betty Frank Ramsey. She is survived by three children
Edward Swank, Cynthia Swank and Matthew Gruendling and grandson Joshua Gruendling. Also, surviving are two brothers James Ramsey
(Sandy) and Phillip Ramsey. A faithful believer in God, she was a lifelong member of St James Lutheran Church and attended throughout the years.
In the words of Corinthians 13:13: "So now faith, hope and love abide, these three; but the greatest of these is love." A graveside memorial service will be held at 11:00 am Friday May 21, 2021 at the Ligonier Valley
