Connie Kaye Lewis Fish

July 7, 1944 — April 2, 2024

Springville

Connie Kaye Lewis Fish was born July 7th 1944 to Boyd Reed and Bernice Maxwell Lewis in Heber City, Utah.  She passed away surrounded by family on Tuesday April 2nd 2024 in Mapleton, Utah.  She was an only child for 10 years before her parents were blessed with three additional children Dixie Wood (Springville, UT), Tonya Ercanbrack (Orem, UT), and Jeffrey Lewis (Idaho Falls, ID). 

Connie had a vivid imagination as a child as she dreamed of being a famous dancer/performer. She was a social butterfly who could carry on a conversation with anyone.  She loved being the center of attention throughout her childhood.  The “gift of gab” was one she was blessed with.  She was active in many clubs, cheerleading, and pageants in her teen years and was voted Heber City’s FFA Queen.  She graduated from Wasatch High School in 1962 and attended Brigham Young University that fall semester where she would continue her studies in Elementary Education for the next four years.

On August 26th 1965 she married Leon Elliott Fish from St. George, Utah.  His family moved to the Heber Valley shortly after he graduated from high school in 1960.  They met while cruising Main Street just before his service of a two and a half-year mission in Montevideo Uruguay from 1962-1964.  They wrote throughout his mission and dated for a year after his return before being married in the Salt Lake City LDS Temple.  Leon graduated from BYU in 1967 and began immediate employment with the FBI.  Their professional career began in Quantico, VA and later would live in San Antonio and Austin, TX, Miami, FL, San Juan PR, Safford and Mesa, AZ, before retiring in 2003.  They moved to Springville Utah in 2005 to be closer to family.

Their oldest son Ryan and second son Brandon were born while living in Miami Florida, and their youngest and only daughter Shannan was born while residing in Safford, Arizona.

Connie was a devout member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.  She held many callings of service throughout her life and was blessed by many who knew her.  She especially loved working with the children in Primary and her friends in the Relief Society. She was employed by the Mesa Arizona Public School System for many years as a reading specialist  and loved working with elementary school children.  The students all loved “Mrs. Fish”!

Connie’s passion was pouring her love and energy into her children and grandchildren.  She never missed an opportunity to support them in whatever musical, sporting event, recital, or play they were involved in.  She was given the nickname of “Connie Camera” during her kids' high school years and has volumes of photographs and videos that captured her passion for her children and their friends. Her love for her family has been a great blessing to her posterity!

The past two years she resided in Spring Gardens assisted living facility in Mapleton, Utah.  The family wishes to share their heart-felt gratitude for the love and care she received there.  Connie is preceded in death by her husband Leon, and her parents Boyd and Bernice Lewis.  She is survived by her 3 siblings and her 3 children: Ryan (Tiffany) of Springville, UT, Brandon (Kristin) of Orem, UT, and Shannan (Spencer) Hinckley of Norman, OK, along with 12 grandchildren.
