It is with great sadness that the family of Connie S. Hendrix announces her passing on Wednesday, August 2, 2023, at the age of 73. Connie was the oldest child born to Ottis and William O.C. Watson on October 26, 1949, in Swainsboro, Georgia.
Connie was devoted to her Lord and to the loving care of her family, church family, and dear friends. Connie and her husband Mike faithfully served the Lord in the ministry for over 50 years, including 15 years of mission work in Indonesia. She lovingly taught many children for over forty years both in public and private schools, teaching children with learning obstacles and behavioral problems.
Connie had many spiritual gifts including teaching, shepherding a women’s ministry through her home church, Ovilla Heights Baptist Church, as well as an online ministry to Indonesia.
She devoted her life to raising and caring for her four children who were her heart. She will be lovingly remembered by her husband Michael Hendrix Sr., Son Michael Hendrix Jr., daughter Kim Guzzo and husband John, son Will Hendrix and wife Jennifer and son Dustin Hendrix. Her beloved sister Norma Thorne and husband Bill Thorne Sr. and nephew Bill Thorne Jr. “Nonnie” will be fondly remembered by her dear grandchildren Cade and Kayla Guzzo and Trent and Colt Hendrix. She will be remembered fondly by her church family, dear friends and her Boxer puppy, “Trigger.”
Connie is preceded in death by her cherished mother and father.
She leaves behind a legacy of faith, unconditional love and strength. She often quoted British Missionary C.T. Studd, “Only one life, ‘twill soon be past, only what’s done for Christ will last.”
To honor Connie's life, the family has planned a service on Saturday, August 5, 2023 at10 o'clock in the morning at Ovilla Heights Baptist Church, 501 E. Ovilla Rd in Glenn Heights, between Red Oak and Ovilla. Burial will follow at Waxahachie City Cemetery.
“Only one life will soon be past, only what’s done for Christ will last.”
