Dateline: Parsippany

Connie M. (nee- Cipolla) Walsh, beloved wife of the late Joseph F. Walsh, passed away on Wednesday, March 13 at Morristown Medical Center.
Born and raised in Brooklyn, NY, Connie was a whirlwind of energy with an infectious love of life; from an early age she was constantly on the move and extremely social. She was always a welcome guest in the homes of her friends.
Connie and her husband moved to Parsippany in 1965. They were an athletic couple who enjoyed tennis, bowling, golf and skiing. They were members of the Mountain Lakes Country Club where they made many good friends and enjoyed a robust social life.
Connie worked as a legal secretary – a career she greatly enjoyed – for over 50 years. She was employed by attorney Nathaniel F. Bedford of Boonton.
Connie loved to travel and took many wonderful trips over the years. Once she discovered Long Boat Key, Fl, however, it became her favorite destination, and she made it her “home away from home” for a few weeks in November every year for the past 37 years.
She was an avid Yankees fan and enjoyed watching old movies on AMC.
Connie was an active member of St. Christopher’s Parish; a Eucharistic minister, an Usher, a member of Prayer Group, a volunteer at Bingo, a volunteer at the group home for people with disabilities, and a member of the Columbiettes.
She was the Republican Committeeperson for District 19 since 1996.
She was a beloved daughter, sister, wife and aunt. She was a friend to many more. She was kind and unflinchingly generous in spirit, always wanting to help other people. She was her “brother’s keeper” — that was her mantra for her entire life. She cared for everyone and everyone cared for her. Every stranger became a life-long friend.
Connie is survived by sisters Josephine McLean and Helen Campa along with many nephews and nieces.
Relatives and friends are invited to attend her Liturgy of Christian burial at 10 a.m. on Monday, March 18, 2019 at St. Christopher R.C. Church, 1050 Littleton Road, Parsippany. Interment: Gate of Heaven Cemetery, East Hanover. Visitation will be on Sunday from 2 p.m – 5 p.m.
