On May 1, 2018 our most treasured little "Hummingbird" spread her magnificent wings and soared off to Paradise.
Connie Chapman, beloved wife of the late Clifford "Chappy" Chapman (2003), passed away peacefully at home in Rockwood where she has resided for the last 7 years with her daughter Shari and son-in-law Don Lovell.
Born in Campbellton, New Brunswick, she was the youngest of five children of James and Inga Boudreau.
The family moved to Toronto in 1928. Connie married Chappy in 1942 and in 1965 they moved to Tillsonburg.
Chappy was the publisher of "The Canadian Sportsman" and was inducted into the Horse Racing Hall of Fame in 2008. Connie was the sweetest little gal you could ever meet. Her children and grandchildren adored her.
Connie was predeceased by her sister May Crossman of Stratford and brothers Stan, Leo and Chester. She is lovingly remembered by her children Shari Lovell (Don) of Rockwood, Paul (Nancy) of Dorchester and Kim Chapman (Don Gross) of Sonoma, CA.
She will be dearly missed by her grandchildren Paul Jr. (Xana), Megan and Abbey. The family would like to extend heartfelt thanks to Lisa Beitz, Jeannette Bos and Dr. Alejandre Marin for their kind and compassionate care over the last several years.
A private family celebration of life will take place at a later date.
In lieu of flowers, the family would ask you to consider performing a random act of kindness in her honour or a donation to the Ontario Standard Bred Adoption Society.
