.                                   Center due to her recent diagnosis of lung and brain cancer.  Connie was born on Oct. 20, 1954, in Marysville, Kan.,
.                                   to William J. and Marilyn (Nester) Whitesell of Blue Rapids, Kan. She was a 1972 graduate of Valley Heights High
.                                   School. Connie worked most of her life in the nursing field. She was a Certified Nurse’s Aide, Certified Med Aide,
.                                   EMT, and her most recent job was a concierge for a retirement home in Edmond, Okla.  Connie enjoyed spending
.                                   time with her family, especially her sister, Phyllis, husband, Jean-Paul, and their two sons, Tyler and Zachary. No
.                                   matter where they were in the world, Connie would be there. She always enjoyed getting phone calls from her other
.                                   family members and visiting with them when they would come to Oklahoma. The friends she had made throughout
.                                   her life were very important to her, and she valued them dearly. Those who had spoken to her recently knew how
.                                   much she loved them.  She is survived by her sister, Phyllis Jones. and husband, Jean-Paul, of Midwest City, Okla.;
.                                   her brother, William G. Whitesell, and wife, Jimie, of Blue Rapids, Kan., and their children, Donovan, Jeremy, James,
.                                   Bill and Mindy; her nephews, Tyler Jones and wife, Jennifer, of Harrah, Okla., Zachary Jones and wife, Danielle, of
.                                   Midwest City, Okla., and Christopher Whitesell of Bruning, Neb.; and her nieces, Stephanie Whitesell of Marysville,
.                                   Kan., Angel (Whitesell) Blackwell of Topeka, Kan., Kim Whitesell of Newton, Kan., Amanda Bender of Manhattan,
.                                   Kan., and Dawnda Coyle of Beatrice, Neb. Connie was preceded in death by her husband, Richard J. Wapp; her
.                                   father, William J. Whitesell; her mother, Marilyn J. Whitesell; and her brother, Mitchell A. Whitesell, all of Blue
.                                   Rapids, Kansas.  Connie was adamant about donating her body for cancer research through UTN (United Tissue
.                                   Network). Her only wish was to hopefully be able to help another person survive cancer whether it be a week or a
.                                   100 years from now.
