Connie was born on Dec. 20, 1942, in Pensacola, FL to Theodore P. and Marian L. Booras. Connie attended school in Pensacola, graduating from Pensacola High School and Pensacola Junior College. She obtained her degree in education from Troy State University and a masters from Cal State, San Bernadino. Connie taught education in Okaloosa County Schools and in the Huntsville, Alabama school system. She was a great educator inspiring the best from her students, siblings, children and grandchildren.

After her marriage to Capt. Conrad Borzych at the Elgin Air Force Base Chapel in 1969, she started her journey as a military spouse to Tampa, FL, Phoenix, AZ, Saxmundham, England, Apple Valley, CA and Langen, Germany. She was able to take trips to Norway, Greece, Scotland, Belgium, Netherlands, Luxembourg, Switzerland, Austria, Spain, various places in Germany, including Berlin before the wall fell, a trip to France, including Lourdes, Pisa, Pompei, Venice, Italy and the Vatican, and many other wonderful adventures with her family. In midlife, she contracted Multiple Sclerosis, resulting in signifcant changes to her life activities. Upon her husband’s retirement, the family returned to Fort Walton Beach to be near her parents and siblings to raise her three children.

The long period of her being homebound was punctuated by trips to Gainesville and Cambridge for her daughter’s and son’s graduations and Washington DC for her son’s wedding, as well as, Rowley, MA for Christmas with her daughter and family. She attended St. Mary’s Catholic Church and for many years was a regular at local Multiple Sclerosis meetings and enjoyed going to the Fort Walton Beach Library. She was generally a happy girl, even in the years following her contraction of Multiple Sclerosis, perhaps due in part her positive outlook on life and because of the unwavering support she received from her husband throughout the 36 years of life with MS. As a result of that support, after her many adventures in Europe and around the world, she led a peaceful life with her family in Fort Walton Beach. Her family remembers her as a very kind, caring, and loving woman.

She is survived by her husband, Conrad; daughters, Christina and Patricia; son and daughter-in-law, Todd and Migle; grandchildren, Frankie, Adeline, Sofia, Genevieve and Solen; brother, Theodore Booras; and sister and brother-in-law, Patricia and Bill Morrison; and nephew, Robert.

Connie was preceded in death by her parents.
