Constance “Connye” Jeanne (Scott) Gomez

September 7, 2021

Constance “Connye” Jeanne (Scott) Gomez, 74, passed away on September 7, 2021, in Wichita, Kansas.

She was born January 16, 1947, in Marysville, Kansas, the daughter of Donn and Audrey (Anderson) Scott.

A God-fearing woman, Connye made her church home at Wichita First United Pentecostal.

Connye was a generous and caring person who marched to the beat of her own drum. She was known for quietly blessing others and rarely backed down from uncomfortable conversations.

Extended to immediate, family was everything to Connye. She delighted in her grandchildren and found great joy in sharing new experiences with them.

Connye enjoyed reading, dancing, sewing, horseback riding, flowers, puzzles and traveling. One of her bigger adventures was going to Maine and boarding the Schooner Mary Day Windjammer. It was a new and exciting experience for her. She thoroughly enjoyed the sightseeing and new friends she met along the way. Another memorable adventure was a recent trip Connye took with her eldest grandson to Alaska, where they fished, hiked, ziplined, swam in waterfalls and, most importantly, spent time with family.

For many years Connye worked as a home health care nurse, bringing comfort and care to patients and their families while they were on hospice or battling Alzheimer’s. In her retirement years Connye worked at Walmart as a cashier, something she greatly enjoyed.

Connye is survived by her daughter and son-in-law, Joselyn Kisha (Gomez) and Eric Slay; son, Christopher Phillip Gomez; grandchildren, Hunter Nathan, Chase Brandon, Ryder Lowell and Francesca Rose; brothers, John (Cindy) Scott and Brian (Terry) Scott; sister, Beverly Stigge; and numerous nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by her parents.

A graveside service will be held at 12:30 p.m., on Wednesday, September 15, 2021, at Sprading Cemetery in Greenleaf, Kansas. The family invites all to join in sharing memories of Connye following the graveside at Hometown Café, 11 N. Center Street in Barnes, Kansas.

A Come & Go Memorial Tea will be held in Connye’s honor at Wichita First United Pentecostal Church, 1755 E MacArthur Rd., Wichita, Kansas at 7:00 p.m., on Thursday, September 16, 2021. Please enter through the north side double doors under the awning.

  1. Connye I feel your loss so deeply. Thank you for opening your home to me from first grade on, for countless meals, taking me on your vacations, for putting up with my shenanigans for 40 years . My heart felt a hole when you left that was way bigger than I even realized. I knew that I had lost someone who truly loved me. I miss you.

  2. Will miss her at Walmart. I wish I could have gotten to know her. Am scheduled to work at the time of the tea.

  3. Oh Connye, I will miss you until I see you again. I know where you are, in Heaven! I love you dearest Connye. I wish I would have taken you up on your invitations more often to go here and there and do this and that. God bless your soul. I am so glad to have known you. Such a faithful and loving child of God.

  4. All the memories of the last almost 40 years with Connye and there are many, I don’t know which stands out the most. I think her devotion to her friends, and the many times she helped and consoled me in times of loss. Then I think of her great dreams, many of which, she accomplished. I used to tell her that she thought in color and I could only think in black and white. I admired that about her. It’s so good to see and know she got to do many things that even in black and white I dare dream of some days. I am still in shock that you have left this world to be with our Father. I know how much she cherished you Kisha and Chris. She especially cherished those sweet and growing up too fast grands. I send you my deepest sympathy as you go forward without her here on this earth. She will be greatly missed by lots of us. I will miss all those Facebook posts that she must have tagged me in the last several months. They were Connye style, very interesting, some a little quirky, and some a little whacky, but that was Connye. She was a sister to me for many years although we we’re as close the last number of years. I still feel that bond that sisters have which is so important when you don’t have a biological sister. I do believe Yahshua Jesus many times provides that person in our lives, and I count Connye one of those sisters that I will always love. Connye, I can’t wait to see you once again, and by the looks of things it may not be too long. Hold my place in line to be there to worship the Father for eternity and we will dance there, too. Love you, Connye Gomez! Praying for shalom and comfort for all the family.

  5. Enjoyed very much working with Connye at Walmart. Loved her stories, her love for people and quest for learning. I will miss her!!
