Mrs. Gartin was my nursing advisor at Iowa Wesleyan in the late 1970's. She was always very kind and considerate. I will never forget her.

I am so sorry to hear of the loss of the amazing Connie Gartin! Mrs Gartin taught me Community Health Nursing in the late 1980's in the Iowa Wesleyan Nursing Program. She was a very interesting lecturer and sparked my interest in Community Health Nursing such that I went on to get my masters in that area of nursing at the University of Iowa and later a PhD. I now serve as the Chair of Nursing at Iowa Wesleyan University and I aspire to be the type of reflective educator your mother was. I recall the wonderful clinical opportunities she set up for us in home care and school nursing in Burlington. Your mom was a fantastic listener and so very kind to all. I am unable to attend the funeral because I am in Omaha this weekend. Lisa Kongable will be there and she has a picture of myself and your mom taken in July 2000. I came down to show off our baby son who had just gotten home from Korea and I recall fondly how wonderful your mom was to visit with that day. All my Love! Mary Carman-Tobin

Tim and Marc, Recalling what a loving, concerned mother Connie was. She was always so supportive of the guidance and leadership of the teacher and I so appreciated that. You two were the recipients of her love and care and I am quite sure she was very proud of both of you and the men of God that you have become. Praying for you and your families as you journey on together. Blessings, Jeanne Eppard
