Connie Sue Omstead

May 4, 1947 — October 3, 2019

Connie's life began on May 4, 1947, in Iberia, Missouri.  She is the daughter of Lawrence and Dorothy (Woolery) Hudson.  Connie attended a few years of college after high school in preparation for her life as a caregiver in area nursing homes as a restorative aid, CNA, and medication aid.  She worked at St. Joseph's Convent in Wichita and for nursing homes in Peabody and Marion County.  Connie was united in marriage to William "Bill" Omstead on August 27, 1977, in Wichita.  The couple owned a Sonic franchise in Scott City and the Kay Sandwich Shop in Wichita.  Connie also worked as a para-professional for Peabody- Burns USD.  She volunteered as a cub scout leader when her children were involved and did the cleaning at the Florence Christian Church for a time.  Everything that Connie did was an example of her caring and loving spirit for others.  Her greatest joy was her family, which includes her children William Omstead, Jr, Randy (LeeAnn) Omstead, Rusty (Vicki) Omstead, all  of Wichita, Howard (Cindy) Omstead of Augusta, David (Windy) Jackson of Van Buren, AR, and Sharon (Joe) Omstead- Box of Florence; 38 grandchildren and several great-grandchildren; siblings Larry Joe Hudson, Randy ( Mikayla) Hudson, Richard Hudson, and Carol (Joe) Cravens.  Connie passed away at her home on October 3, 2019.  She is preceded in death by her parents, her husband Bill and sister Joyce Paquette.  Her family will gather with friends on Thursday October 10, 2019 at 3 p.m. at the Florence United Methodist Church for her memorial service.  Yazel-Megli-Zeiner Funeral Home, Marion, is serving the family.  Memorial contributions in her name may be directed to the March of Dimes, in care of Yazel-Megli- Zeiner Funeral Home (205 Elm, Marion).  Please sign her online guestbook and leave a memory of Connie at
