Constance Diane Christianson was born May 6, 1938, in Sioux City, Iowa, to Charles and Margaret Rose (Atkins) Christianson.  Connie has made her home at Park View Haven, Coleridge, since August 1972 and has been a family member of Park View Haven and friends with the Coleridge community ever since.
Connie enjoyed being part of the life at Park View Haven by participating in activities offered.  She loved playing bingo, going on outings and especially visiting with people.  She was very good about remembering people and their names, even from many years back.
Connie’s favorite color was lavender, and her favorite TV program was Walker Texas Ranger. Her favorite meal was a shrimp dinner from Lonnie’s and her favorite holiday was Christmas.  She could not wait to see what she got for Christmas!  She attended the ecumenical church services that were provided by the community at the nursing home.
She is survived by the staff and residents of Park View Haven, Coleridge, and her guardian, Marcia Feelhaver.
Connie’s mother Margaret preceded her in death May 30, 1985.
