Connie Widman

Constance Marie Widman passed away on Thursday, September 3, 2020 under the care of Hospice of Central Ohio in Columbus, Ohio after a battle with cancer and strokes.



Connie was born in Bucyrus, Ohio to the late William F. and Patricia A. (Evers) Widman on May 30, 1949. She is survived by sisters, Jean (the late Dr. John) Mauler, Judy Widman, and Kathy Widman of Bucyrus; her nephews, Joseph, Edward, and David Mauler; niece, Jennifer (Paul) Dekeizer; a great-nephew, Grayson Dekeizer; and many wonderful cousins and fine friends.



She attended Holy Trinity Catholic School, graduated from St. Francis High School, Tiffin, Ohio and Mary Manse College in Toledo, Ohio with a bachelor’s degree in elementary education. She taught for 41 years at Holy Trinity in Bucyrus having taught first grade for most of those years.

Timothy Downey, began the blessing of the animals for St. Francis’ Feast Day.



The love of her life was teaching first graders. She collected children’s books, Christmas ornaments, and antique books. She loved animals, especially St. Bernards, cats, and horses and had a passion for gardening and crafts. She loved Christmas and was known for her beautifully decorated Christmas trees. She treasured her many teaching colleagues, high school and college friends, and planned many get-togethers with them.
