(September 08, 2020) - Connie L. Falk, age 70, a long-time resident of Florence, passed away on Friday, September 4, in Racine, Wisconsin, with her family by her side. Connie was born March 3, 1950, in Milwaukee, daughter of the late Frank and Edith (Dumke) Bomberg. Connie's parents moved back to Florence when she was three years old to run Tippy's Bar & Bowl. That's where she became an avid bowler. She graduated from Florence High School, class of 1968. Connie then went on to attend Northwestern Technical College, receiving her associate degree in data processing. After graduating from NWTC, she went to work for Red Owl. After being bought out by SuperValu, she moved to the Racine area with them and was a meat and seafood buyer for many years. Connie then worked for Ameritech, who was bought out by AT&T. She eventually moved back to Green Bay and retired in 2012. At that time, she moved back to her home town of Florence.

Connie learned to decorate cakes while in high school and took pleasure in bringing finished cakes to an event for family or friends. She continued her baking into her later life and also started taking art classes. Although she could not draw, she loved to paint. So, feel free to bring one of your paintings and share the stories.

Connie volunteered at the Florence County Library and was a member of The Friends of the Library. While being a member of the group, she implemented storytime, book club, and monthly movies.

Connie learned early in life, the importance of friends and family. She offered a helping hand whenever the need arose. A special thank you to Debra DeMuri, who took many trips with her to doctors' appointments. Many people who supported her through this thing called cancer, and thanks to everyone for that support.

Survivors include her children, Peter (Tammy) Falk and Dawn (Matt Prater) Falk; one granddaughter, Aurora Falk, all of Racine; one brother, Dale (Jane Frieburg) Bomberg of Verona, Wisconsin; one niece, Katie (John) Zapfel; one nephew, Justin (Seely) Bomberg, all of Elkhorn; three great-nephews, Leo, Finn and Noah Zapfel; and by two great-nieces, Vienna and Sabrina Bomberg.

In addition to her parents, Connie was preceded in death by her stepmother, RoseMary (McCraw/Roberts) Bomberg.
