It is with great sadness the family of Connie Sons, 63, of Bluffton,SC announces her passing on Friday, November 15th, 2019 following a tragic car accident in Charleston.
Connie was born in Knoxville, TN, and spent much of her life living in New Orleans, LA, before relocating with her family to the South Carolina low-country, where she had lived for over 30 years. She loved spending time on the May River or at the beach, gardening with her husband in their yard, exploring with her golf cart through the Alljoy area, and relaxing with her friends and family on her back porch. Connie was a nurse on Hilton Head Island for many years, the perfect occupation for her, given her selfless and caring nature.
