Connie Etter Moore, 72 of Republic, went home to be with God in heaven on September 12, 2023.

Connie found her forever love of her life when she met Danny and they married on July 15, 1966 in his family home in Lawton, OK. Their three children were born in the 1960’s and 1970’s, Julie, Ronnie, and Misti. In 1995, Danny and Connie discovered their family tree wasn’t done and completed their loving family with the adoption of Shania.

Throughout her life, Connie was a hairdresser at salons in Oklahoma and Missouri and spent her time providing salon services at nursing homes in Republic, MO. But her most favorite job was being a homemaker and mother to her children.

Connie is survived by her son Ronnie Moore and wife Angel, her daughter Misti Preston and husband Blaine, and her daughter Shania Moore. She is also survived by her five grandchildren: Tyler, Sydni, Tiffani, Sophi, and Bodey, two beautiful great grandbabies, Phoenix Denise and Romely June, sister Janelle Underwood, and other family plus friends that were just like her family.

Her services will be held at Greenlawn Funeral Home – East, 3540 E. Seminole, Springfield, MO. A brief visitation will precede the funeral at 1 p.m. on September 15, 2023, with funeral immediately following at 2 p.m.

She will be laid to rest between her husband and daughter at Greenlawn Cemetery, 3506 N. National, Springfield, immediately following funeral services.

Services for Connie will be at 2:00 pm Friday, September 15, 2023 at Greenlawn Funeral Home East with interment following at Greenlawn Memorial Gardens.

Visitation will be from 1:00 to 2:00 pm prior to the service.
