WINTER GARDEN, Fla. — On Sept. 21, Constance (Connie) Hansen Scheuerman, 89, passed away, joining her husband, of 62 years, who died exactly seven years earlier.
Connie was born in 1925 in Rozel, the daughter of Harvey and Anna Renz Hansen of Rush Center. In 1943, she graduated from La Crosse High School. In 1945, Connie met and married Gene Scheuerman of Bison. Connie worked six years for Sears of Great Bend before opening her own dress shop, Connie’s Large and Half Sizes. The shop operated for almost 25 years before Gene and Connie moved to Winter Garden, Fla. in 1995.
Connie, most well known for her gold fingernails, spent most of her days phoning friends and family across the country bringing smiles and laughs and a compassionate ear to listen. She never met a stranger and made it her goal to make others feel happy and welcome. She also loved cheering on her Orlando Magic. Good or bad she didn’t mind, that was her team and she would continue to watch.
Connie was a member of Winter Garden United Methodist Church.
Connie is survived by daughter, Lois Schremmer, and a son, Robin, both of Winter Garden, Fla.; three grandchildren, Brandon Schremmer of Clermont, Fla., Shawna and husband Seth Traub of Tampa, Fla., and Kimberly Scheuerman of Orlando, Fla.; and seven great-grandchildren, Tia, Taylor, Tanner and Trevor Schremmer, and Emily, Ethan and Austin Traub.
Friends of Connie’s are welcome to attend the celebration of life from 2 to 4 p.m. on Sunday in the Hyde Park clubhouse in Winter Garden, Fla. Memorial donations may be made to Bison Methodist Church in Bison.
