PRICE/WELLINGTON - Connie Rae Lee Pierce, age 64, passed away Feb. 17, 2012 at Castleview Hospital after living a wonderful life and from causes incident to her valiant battle with Parkinson's Disease. Connie was born Nov. 26, 1947 in Price to Clark and Marjorie Lee. She married Ben Pierce on May 10, 1969 in Bountiful. They were sealed in the Salt Lake LDS Temple on May 10, 1971. She spent the rest of her life known as Ben's "little dove."

Connie moved with her family to Bountiful when she was 12 years old, where she loved going to the library and swimming pool. She was a part of the first graduating class from Viewmont High School in 1966. Connie attended Stevens Henager College, where after graduation worked for the McConkie Brothers in downtown Salt Lake City. She and Ben moved to Wellington when their children were small. She worked at Castleview Hospital and as an Office Manager for Dr. Elwin Atwood, DDS. Everyone would say that her smiling face helped make going to the dentist a little easier. She loved doing yard work, swimming, bike riding, playing the piano, going for walks, coloring with the grandkids, decorating for the holidays, reading, and was especially known as quite a card shark.

Connie was an active member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. She served in many church callings including: Relief Society President, and for many years as the Primary Pianist, which she loved.
