Connie Rae Castor Yardley Oliver passed away on Jan. 17, 2014.

Connie lived her life with a smile and a dance. She loved the outdoors, music and laughter, but most of all, her passion was her family.

Connie was daughter to Boyd and Maurine Castor, born in Telluride, Colo., on Dec. 14, 1946. She was raised in the West End, where she married Donnie Yardley. Together, they moved to Moab, Utah, and raised their four daughters.

Connie was preceded in death by Donnie. She later returned to the West End, where she married Micheal Oliver. Her remaining days were spent here.

She is survived by her daughters, Juan, SheilaRay, Cori and Jodie; 12 grandchildren; eight great-grandchildren; her mother, Maurine Castor; four brothers; and Mick Oliver.

Connie will be greatly missed and loved everyday.

Memorial services were held at the Naturita Community Center, 411 West 2nd Ave., Naturita, Colo., on Jan. 25 at 2 p.m.

We would like to thank all those who supported us during this sad time for our family, and all those who attended the services.
