Connie Carver

October 25, 1949 ‒ April 18, 2015

Bellville, Ohio

BELLVILLE: Connie Carver liked to wiggle a stick, infuse some love and prayers, and turn a few skeins of yarn into a beautiful blanket or afghan. Connie enjoyed crocheting! Referred to as “NaNa” by generations of children – grandchildren, great grandchildren, and many she had “adopted” – Connie was always a little behind in her crocheting. She had more love than yarn.

Following a short illness, Connie was called into the Lord’s presence early Saturday morning April 18, 2015 from OSU Wexner Medical Center in Columbus. She was 65.

She was born October 25, 1949 in Mansfield to Ronald & Margaretan (Murray) Teeter and was graduated from Bellville High School. She remained an area resident and worked as an inspector with Gorman Rupp in Bellville.

An active member of CitiChurch, she served the congregation as a greeter, and was supportive of the church’s sister-congregation work in Mt. Vernon.

Connie was a member and former president of the Auxiliary of American Legion Post #535 in Bellville, and a member of the Auxiliary of V.F.W. Post #5101 near Lexington.

She is survived by her husband Edward Carver, whom she married January 5, 1973; sons and daughters Chuck & Virginia Carver, Mike & Robin Carver and Bobby Carver all of Bellville, John Frazee of Mt. Vernon, Tony & Paula Frazee of Bellville, Cindy & Brian Hoffee of Galion and Sharon Frazee of Lexington; ten grandchildren, 24 great grandchildren; a sister Cindy Young of Bellville and brother Tom & Gloria Teeter of Mansfield.

In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by a grandson and a great granddaughter.

The Carver family will receive friends Wednesday, April 22, 2015 from 4 to 7 p.m. in the Bellville Snyder Funeral Home, where the funeral service will be held Thursday at 11 a.m. Pastor Micah Pelkey will officiate. Burial will follow in Mansfield Memorial Park.

Contributions in her memory to CitiChurch may be made at the funeral home.

To the family I know the days ahead will be hard but your memories will be precious. You are in my prayers. God Bless

  • We are truly sorry for the family’s lost but we are sure where her spirit is now. She was a wonderful and colorful person. She was a good friend to many and a great lost to this community and her family.

She will be missed by many and especially us.

  • My words can’t speak how amazing and bigger then life Connie was. The jokes aside and harassment of her Grandchildren, she was a loving and very caring woman. The last true moment I had with her, I jokingly asked her to bake me a banana cream pie, the next week she had it waiting for me to retrieve before Squeaker James had eaten it. She will truly be missed by many. I’m sorry for the Carver family loss. My Condolences to you, Ed and Bob.

As we grieve we will also rejoice in knowing you’re safe in Jesus’ arms and rocking babies. Our prayers go out to the Carvers & Frazees as they mourn their loss. Praying they find comfort in God and His love for us. We are so deeply sorrowful for all of you. May God continue to bless us with the many things Connie passed down to us.
