Connie Carnagey passed away on September 14, 2017 in Baker City, Oregon.
Connie is preceded in death by her husband Tom Carnagey and her parents Wayne and Dot Hathaway. She is survived by her sister Jeannette Harrop and her husband Ron of Fishkill, New York, her two sons, Joseph Carnagey and his wife Annitta of Nampa, Idaho and Philip Carnagey and his wife Angie of Boise, Idaho.
Connie Carnagey was born in The Dalles, Oregon on May 28th, 1940. She grew up in Lyle Washington and graduated Valedictorian from both 8th grade and high school. On February 1, 1960 Connie started to serve as a full-time minister or pioneer. Her parents supported her by buying her a brand new 1960 Ford Falcon. In 1961 she moved to Baker where she met and later married Tom Carnagey.
In 1963, her first son Joe was born in Grangeville, Idaho. Her second son Phil was born in 1969 in Whitefish, Montana while they were living in Eureka. Connie and Tom had a nice garden in, so she would enter canned goods, produce, jams and jellies at the local fair. She used the ribbon winnings to buy a baby stroller for her youngest son Phil. In the early 1970’s they moved to New Bridge, Oregon and raised the boys on a little farm. At that time, they helped start a congregation of Jehovah’s Witnesses in Halfway, Oregon.
In 1991 Connie moved back to Baker and started to pioneer again. She had the privilege of attending pioneer school with Guy Pierce as one of her instructors. He later became a member of the Governing Body of Jehovah’s Witnesses. Connie was an excellent student and teacher of the Bible, over the years she studied with many people.
Connie will be greatly missed for several reasons. She was a loving mother and sister, a great cook and a faithful wife. She had a kind and tender heart with a sweet disposition. She loved flowers, small children and animals, but most of all, her God, Jehovah.
The memorial service for Connie will be Saturday, September 30th, 2017 at 2 PM. Kingdom Hall of Jehovah’s Witnesses 975 S. Bridge Street, Baker City, Oregon.
