Connie Lou (Moore) Boyer of Reno, Nevada passed away peacefully in her sleep at home on December 23rd 2022. She had her husband by her side, Robert Junior Boyer, who she loved, treasured and adored. Connie was born November 3rd 1939 in Albion, Washington. Her amazing mother, Wyoma Angeline (Lindsley) Moore and her very kind and hardworking father, Luther David Moore raised Connie and her two younger sisters in Tacoma, Washington.
After graduating from Lincoln High School with honors, Connie married Robert Lee Ivy and they had seven daughters together. After Robert Ivy passed away in 1972, Connie continued raising her children in Renton and was an amazing Mother. She absolutely loved her daughters, aka, “The Ivy Girls”. Connie later married Robert Boyer and after the girls were grown, the two of them followed their dreams and moved to Reno, Nevada in 1988. They shared many adventurous and happy years together, living life to the fullest through the most beautiful and simplest of pleasures. Connie’s passion of hosting holiday family gatherings and cooking for everyone will always be cherished memories by the family. Her love of music, gardening, bowling, camping and sports along with many other hobbies and interest will always be remembered especially if you ever watched a Seahawk’s game with her as she particularly loved the Hawks, along with the Sonics, (she still spoke of the 1979 championship game with excitement). She thoroughly enjoyed and excelled in playing the piano, skiing and ice skating in her younger years and most recently loved bird watching, tackling puzzles in crossword books, storytelling and reminiscing and spending time with her loved ones. She could recite the longest riddle or poem without missing a word. Her incredible memory, her funny & humorous manner and wit was an incredible talent and gift. She kept the spark up until the day she passed. She was so admired will be very missed and forever loved.
To the love of her life, Robert Junior Boyer, Connie’s abundance of undying love will forever remain. The two were happily together for more than 40 years, side by side. The two made many memorable and fun memories together and will forever be a part of each other. Bob & Connie, “Two Peas in a Pod”. Their love and bond, so beautifully strong, lives on in everyone who knows them.
To her daughters, Barbara, Diana, Krista, Lisa, Robin, Karan and Tricia, Connie’s pride and joys. She loved, cherished and spoke proudly of them. Connie is now reunited with her two daughters Krista and Lisa, in Heaven, along with many other family members who passed and lead the way before her.
To all her cherished Grandchildren and Great Grandchildren, she leaves her guidance and protection within them. Her love for each and every single one of us had no distance or time and her love will live on forever. Connie was truly an incredible woman. The many, practically countless, family members are all here because of her… What a beautiful gift she was and will always be to us all. Family and friends will be gathering this Spring at one of Connie's favorite places to release her ashes along the beautiful Truckee River.
In honor of Connie, live your life adventurously, laugh often and love abundantly, always.
