Connie Sue (Davis) Roberts

November 27, 1963 - October 5, 2018

Connie Sue (Davis) Roberts, 54, of Plano, Texas, passed away peacefully at home surrounded by friends and family on October 5, 2018, after a long and valiant battle with cancer. She was born on November 27, 1963, to Patricia Ann (McNeil) Crump and William Leland Crump in Jackson, Mississippi. At age three, Connie moved to her mother’s hometown of McKinney, Texas after her father’s death. Her mother married the Honorable Don Weaver Davis in 1968, and Judge Davis adopted Connie and her two brothers. Connie attended McKinney schools. She loved to sing and had a beautiful voice. She won state UIL honors in choir and was the lead in Fiddler On The Roof her senior year. Connie graduated from McKinney High School in 1982. She attended Texas Christian University and Texas Women’s University, earning her bachelors in nursing in 1986. A natural caregiver, she worked as a nurse for more than 30 years. She adored babies and spent the majority of her career in labor and delivery. Connie was a lactation consultant for Texas Health Presbyterian where she recently celebrated her 20-year work anniversary. On September 29, 2007, she married the love of her life, Booth Roberts. They enjoyed many trips and adventures together. They were loving dog parents to two very lucky girls, first a golden retriever named Sadie and more recently a huge chocolate lab named Allie.

Connie was a devoted friend to many and an incredible aunt. Chemotherapy and illness did not stop her from attending chaotic toddler birthday parties, sports games and anything else her nieces and nephews had going. Connie was a dedicated, longtime member of Preston Road Church of Christ in Dallas, where she sang with the praise team and volunteered with vacation bible school. Connie was a Christian and her faith was very important to her. God’s heavenly choir has a new soprano.    

She is survived by her husband, William Booth Roberts of Plano, TX; brother, John Stephen Davis of Cleburne, TX; niece, Ruby Davis of McKinney, TX; niece, Rachel Wilson (Davis) Pittman and husband, Ryan, and their children, August and Marian of McKinney, TX; nephew, Don Weaver Davis II and wife, Ashley, and their children, Don (“Trey”), Caroline and Emma of McKinney, TX; nephew, Neil Eugene (“Cotton”) Davis, Jr., and wife, Brooke of Longview, TX; aunt, Ruth (McNeil) Kennedy of Fairview, TX; aunt, Linda (McNeil) Dugger of Plano, TX; uncle, Robert Ferrill of Oklahoma City, OK; aunt, Betty (Roberts) Monro of Woodbridge, VA; mother-in-law, Laura W.

Connie, you were a radiant shining light to everyone you knew. You gave of yourself continually with love and compassion. We shall miss your annual visits to Sakonnet, always a highlight of the summer here. That being said, we are so glad you are at peace now and painfree. The memories of all the happy times will stay with us forever, your Rhode Island family, Norm and Janet. Norman Lofsky, October 12, 2018 Connie was a beautiful soul with an angelic voice. I pray for comfort and peace. Vicki Perkins, October 11, 2018 Our deepest sympathies to Booth, John, and the rest of your family, friends. Connie was truly a wonderful person. I have so many memories of her as a kid either at her house on College Street or at grandma's house. Lots of fun times with cousins chasing each other around grandma's house or playing hide in go seek at the big house on College. Her brothers, especially John, loved teasing her. In becoming a young adult, her caring nature really was evident in the way she treated people and her choice of occupation. I still have letters she sent me in college to cheer me up. As she got older, she was always there for friends and family. We were all so happy when she found Booth. I know she loved him so much and him her. My mom came to think of Connie as more of a daughter than a niece. Connie was always so caring and helpful with mom. We will all miss her greatly. The Dugger Family (Steve, Anne, Sam and Linda), October 11, 2018 Words are hard to express. My heart goes out to the entire family. I have great childhood memories of all of us at Grandma and Grandpas house in Haynesville, making mud pies out if Grandmas powder puff things while we played in the yard. And also if sitting on the old porch swing talking story. So many distant memories! Connie Sue was a woman of warmth, grace, and kindness. I will miss my first cousin. Kelly Bruce Granddaughter of Leland Crump and Lou Nell Chisolm Crump Kelly Renee (Crump) Bruce, October 11, 2018 Rachel, Don, and Cotton, how sadden Joe I were to learn iof Connie’s passing. Rachel, when you drove Joe to his cancer treatments, you had shared with us Connie’s cancer battle and I prayed for a winning battle. Oh, so many years ago when you were young, your aunt Connie was always at your birthday celebrations and I can remember her sweet countenance , sparkle in her eyes, and pride for each of you. You were truly blessed with an aunt who adored you. Joe and I pray God’s love surround you with hugs from friends & family and peace in your heart. Joe and Neiter Day Glennietta Day, October 11, 2018 Sweet girl, God got another voice in His angelic choir. "In the arms of an angel, fly away from here. In the arms of an angel, you will find comfort there." Sleep, sweet child as you are now pain free and whole. Love, Suki Suki, October 10, 2018 "Look unto the hills from whence cometh your help; for your help comes from the Lord." Praying for peace and comfort for the family during this time.
