Connie Lynn Gilbertson, age 63, of Maple Plain, passed away peacefully, surrounded by loved ones, Tuesday, Aug. 28, 2018.

Services to celebrate Connie’s life will take place Sunday, Sept. 16 at 2 p.m. at Trinity Lutheran Church, 2060 Co. Rd. 6, Long Lake. There will be a gathering of family and friends from 1 to 2 p.m. at the church.

In lieu of flowers, please make donations, in Connie’s name, to the Frauenshuh Cancer Center at Methodist Hospital, 6500 Excelsior Blvd., St. Louis Park, MN 55426.

Connie is survived by her devoted husband of 39 years, Fred; children Tiffany Gutierrez, Nicholas (Ashley), and Caitlin Sveum (Jay); grandchildren Zachary, Gabrielle, Tucker, Finn, Malia, and Jackson; and other loving family and friends.

To know Connie was a blessing. She was the rock of her family and always lent an ear and helping hand to whoever was in need.

Her sense of humor and laughter will live on in all of those who have had the good fortune of being in her presence. The love she selflessly gave to her family will be forever held in their hearts.

Connie will be missed terribly, but never forgotten.
