INCH, Constance E. " Connie" (née EPLETT)
In loving memory of Constance E. "Connie" INCH, 80 years, Tuesday, May 29th, 2007 at the Pioneer Manor, Sudbury. Beloved wife of William A. INCH predeceased 1992. Loving mother of Carolyn (husband Gary LUM), Sam, Jim, Andy, Cathy (husband Richard SMITH), and Tracey (husband Kent PERRAS.) Cherished grandmother of Jamie, Edward, Ryan, David, Jedd, and Kael. Dear daughter of Samuel and Nora (MILLER) EPLETT predeceased. Dear sister of Patricia McLENNAN predeceased. Special aunt to Lynda McLENNAN.
Connie grew up during the war years in New Liskeard and was introduced to the love of nature and outdoor activities by her sportsman father, Sam EPLETT, owner of Epletts Ice Cream. She had her own horse at age 12 and became a skilled horsewoman. At war's end she met the love of her life, a war-time pilot, Bill INCH, and as soon as he finished law school he married Connie and commenced practicing law with Connie's uncle, George MILLER, with the Sudbury law firm Miller, Maki.
She was an avid curler and once represented the north in national curling championship. During the time she was raising their six children, she gave many hours to the Red Cross and other charities related to Children's Aid.
Her annual getaway was to go moose hunting with the boys. She was a loyal Progressive Conservative party worker in many campaigns. In later years she took on the management of the Towne House Hotel owned by her husband and business partners. To add a challenge, she bought a farm which later became an established equestrian facility in Chelmsford, Ontario, currently owned and operated by her daughter Cathy and her husband Rick.
Throughout her life she was a popular hostess who knew the words to all the songs of the day and could whip up a meal for a dozen people at a moment's notice. Connie will be remembered by all who knew her for her vibrant personality, exuberant love of life and her incredible organizational skills. She shot from the hip and rarely missed.
