Connie Wert

February 1, 1933 — September 6, 2021

Connie Jean (Maurer) Wert died peacefully on September 6, 2021, in her home at Freedom Plaza in Peoria, Arizona. Connie was born in Toledo, Ohio on February 1, 1933, to Helen and Hank Maurer. She is survived by her brother Jerry Maurer and two children, daughter Roxanne (Jeff) Buchholz and son Randy Wert and her three grandchildren Christopher Lemle, Justin Wert and Kyle Buchholz. She was preceded in death by her husband Glenn Wert, her sister Judy Hartman and parents Helen and Hank Maurer. She was married to Glenn Wert on January 17, 1953, in Toledo, Ohio. In addition to their home in Toledo in 1980 they built a lake home in Reading, Michigan. Eventually they spent summers at the lake house and winters in Naples, Florida. In 1994 they relocated to Sun City, Arizona. Connie was the editor of the 1951 First Lady yearbook from Whitney Vocational High School. She could crochet or knit anything, she sewed matching outfits for the family at Easter, and Barbie and Ken clothes from left over material. She was an awesome party planner and hosted backyard ice skating parties, neighborhood pool parties and always invited anyone that did not have a place to go for holiday parties to join our family. Talented in so many things, she drew up the floor plans for their homes in Toledo and Hillsdale, incorporated physicians into private practice, decorated for every season, painted murals on the wall, made foil dinners on the grill and homemade ice cream, and even made her own birthday and holiday greeting cards! After retirement, Connie and Glenn traveled the world for over 30 years. They were very involved with church activities at Epiphany Lutheran. In addition, they were avid collectors of glass, candlewick, and pottery for years. They were active in the Camera Guild of Sun City, the National Imperial Glass Collectors Society and the Greater Phoenix Candlewick and Imperial Glass Enthusiast’s along with many other organizations. After Glenn’s passing Connie reconnected with an old friend Dave Deppen, they traveled the world together for another ten years. Mom was ready to go home and be with Jesus and all those that preceded her. Connie requested that no service be held. In lieu of flowers, consider donations to Hospice of the West, 21410 N. 19th Ave., Phoenix, AZ 85027.
