Connie Frei

January 29, 1954 — December 29, 2022

Constance Maria ie: Connie Mae was born January 29, 1954 at St. Aloysius Hospital in Harvey North Dakota. She was the oldest of 10 children born to Walter and Eunice Richter Kraft.

A portion of her childhood was spent on her parents family farm in rural Selz, North Dakota, until their dad decided a career choice in construction. The family then moved around, yet always remembering their roots and family in North Dakota, which was always considered home.

Being the oldest, at a young age Connie became instrumental in helping with her younger siblings and embraced the role she was in each of their lives.

When the family moved to Limon, CO., Connie met and married Kenneth Plum on May 22, 1976. To this union she welcomed three children Kenny, Connie and Chris. She loved being a wife and mother and loved her kids dearly! As the kids grew so did their families. Kenneth married Kim Calvert and they have seven children. Daniel, Rachell (Tyler) Tucker, Zachary, Joshua, Rebekah (Ben) Allen , Jacob, Renee (Alberto) Perea and 10 grandchildren. Connie is married to Jed Wassenburg and they have one son Kyle and wife Rachel, two grandchildren. Chris currently is dating Jenny and has two children, AJ and Kristina.

Kenneth died unexpectedly Dec. 16, 2005. His passing left the family distraught by the void left in their family.

After Kens death, Connie traveled before settling down in Grand Junction to be closer to her parents and siblings. It is at that time Connie met and married Erich Frei, also widowed, on June 1, 2011 and built a life together sharing adventures and many wonderful memories together. They loved to travel and ride their Harley Motorcycles. In 2016, they decided to purchase property in the Debeque mountain community and spent their time enjoying the tranquility of their new surroundings.

Connie was amazing in the kitchen, a gift she'd learned from her mother. Her table could feed 5 or 15 at any setting and you were always welcome to her table. Baking and cooking was her special gift and what a gift it was, she'd make it a point to have your "favorites" when visiting, especially for the grandkids!

Connie was so much to so many, and there is so much love in her legacy that will always be in our hearts.
