Born on July 20, 1945 in Belleville, Mifflin Co., she is a daughter of the late Arthur and Charlotte (Young) Powell.
On March 30, 1970, she married her surviving devoted husband, Stephen B. Loudenslager with whom she was blessed to share over 51 years of marriage.
In addition to her husband, she is survived by: her children, Bryan T. Loudenslager and his wife Brenda of Nacogdoches, TX, Amy B. Felmlee and her husband Mark of Lewistown, and Jaimee L. Stimely and her husband TJ of McVeytown; ten grandchildren, Haley, Chance, Dylan, Alyssa, Blake, Maddyson, Ty, Logan, Adysson, and Mya; one great grandson, Weston and one great grandchild on the way; and her former daughter in law, Nanci L. Aumiller of Mifflintown.

Connie was a 1963 graduate of Kishacoquillas High School in Reedsville and held various jobs over the years and lastly employed and retired from Perfection Cleaning in McAlisterville. She believed strongly that cleanliness is next to Godliness and would easily spot a dust ball from 10 yards away.
She was a member of the Good News Lutheran Brethren Church in McAlisterville.
Her hobbies included acrylic painting, camping, watching golf, and watching her grandchildren play sports, but what she cherished and what defined her most was her role as a wife, mother, grandmother, and great grandmother. She had a growing and maturing faith in God and her trust in Jesus Christ sustained her until it was time to go home.
