Constance T. "Connie" Wolfe Rumball
Constance “Connie” T. Rumball, age 88, of Erie, passed away Sunday, November 6, 2022, at LECOM at Village Square, following a brief illness.
Connie was born May 21,1934 in Lake City, PA. She was the daughter of the late William R. Wolf and Florence Timmis Wolf. She attended Allegheny College in Meadville prior to her marriage to James Rumball in 1953. Connie and Jim lived in Norfolk, Virginia during Jim’s Navy years, and then resided together in Erie until Jim’s death in 2011. Boating on Lake Erie, traveling to observe the Kinzua Dam being constructed, and holding backyard picnics were activities they enjoyed with their four children.
Following her retirement from Plastek Industries, where she worked as a quality control inspector, Connie resided at Benetwood Apartments in Harborcreek. Here she thrived in a caring, supportive community of seniors. She made many friends and happily participated in activities like bingo, parties and dinners, and going out for lunch with her neighbors. Connie loved reading, crocheting, gardening, cooking, and taking rides through the local countryside. She was a lifelong dog lover; and she never met a Chinese buffet she didn’t like.
Connie is survived by her twin sons Gary and Terry Rumball; daughters Cherri (Bill) Engell and Susan Rumball; and by her grandson, Joseph Rumball.
No calling hours will be held. Arrangements are being handled by Quinn Funeral Home, West 9th & Liberty St.
