Crayons can be gray and dull or vibrant and colorful. Some people go through life and use only few colors from their box or only the dull colors and some people use all their colors and they shine brighter than the rest of us. Connie used all the colors in her box and she shared her vibrant colors with her family, community and friends. She was a wife, mother, sister, grandmother, friend and teacher. Besides raising her six children, she was very proud of her 25 years of teaching children in the Perryopolis area at the Learning Tree Preschool. Commonly heard if you mention Connie’s name is “My kids had her in preschool, they just loved her!” Connie was also very active in her community. She gave many years of dedicated service to the Frazier Community Library and was a big part of the Children’s Library therein. She helped to organize fundraisers and activities for the library with the annual Christmas Tree contest being her favorite event. She was very talented in making pysanki eggs, hooked rugs, woven baskets and her famous perogies. She taught classes on her crafts and won blue ribbons at the Fayette County Fair for her hooked rugs. She loved her grandchildren deeply and she has left each of them with the fondest memories of Grandma’s House. She was an avid reader and loved to garden. She also enjoyed traveling; her favorite trip was to Poland with her sisters. She had a close-knit group of friends through bowling league, bocce and her carpet hooking friends affectionally called “The Hookers”. She had an infectious laugh. She impacted many lives and was loved deeply by her friends and family. A rare cancer diagnosis took her from us quickly and too soon. Our hearts can hardly bear the grief. She was loved beyond words and will be missed beyond measure.
Left to cherish her memory is her husband Tom DuBreucq of Vanderbilt, PA and her children Charmagne (DuBreucq) Darabadey and husband Farid of Carrollton, TX; Thomas DuBreucq, Jr; Chad DuBreucq and wife Rosalie of Monessen, PA; Cullan DuBreucq and wife Christine of Connellsville, PA; Cherisse (DuBreucq) Waligura and husband Trevor of Uniontown, PA; and Cit DuBreucq of Pittsburgh, PA. She is also survived by her sisters Jean (Vedock) Cunningham of Covington, IN and Carol (Vedock) Replogle and husband Robert of Audubon, PA and a brother Frank Vedock and wife Alley of Marengo, OH. She is preceded in death by her parents Frank J. and Magdelen M. Vedock of Johnstown, PA. Her grandchildren were the most cherished people in her life and her wish for all of them is that they truly live life to all of its potential: Alexandra, Nikolas and Dayton Darabadey; Rachel and Ian DuBreucq; Bodie, Braedon and Brent DuBreucq; Brittney DuBreucq; Carter, Cole and Cooper Waligura; and Jackson DuBreucq.
