Connie Sue Jewett

September 16, 1951 — February 21, 2016

Connie Sue Jewett, 64, of Lexington, Nebraska, passed away Sunday, February 21, 2016, at her home near Lexington. Connie was born September 16, 1951, in Lexington, Nebraska, to Milo Milton and Aeota M. (Dillman) Koehn. She graduated from Lexington High School with the class of 1969. Connie was united in marriage to David Jewett on July 14, 1969, at the First Presbyterian Church in Lexington. Three children were blessed to this marriage; David, Jr., Tammy, and Mindy. Connie was a stay-at-home mom when her kids were small, but helped David with the farming operation. She also baked cakes for birthdays, weddings, and any celebration she was asked to bake for. She loved baking, gardening, flowers, her furry four-legged pets, racing, playing cards, and being with the grandkids. She worked at the Dawson County Raceway for many years. She was the friendly face when you pulled into the gates, and held many jobs wherever she was needed. She belonged to a Birthday Club, and loved visiting with her customers in the bakery at Walmart. Connie received her 50 year membership pin from the First Presbyterian Church. She had such a kind heart, a loving smile, and enjoyed a good laugh, a good joke, and was always there when needed. She will be so very missed.
