Constance Eleanor Haimbaugh

Zionsville — Constance Eleanor Haimbaugh of Zionsville died Dec. 3, 2012.  

She was born on June 6, 1937 to the late Lloyd L. and Estelle Hathaway Graham Baldwin in Akron, Ohio. Connie graduated from Buchtel High School and Akron University. She married John William Haimbaugh on Aug.16, 1958. Connie was an elementary school teacher before becoming a mother, the most important work of her life.

The Cedar Chest Antique Store in Zionsville, her business for many years, allowed her to educate and be involved with the community. She was a member of St. Luke’s United Methodist Church, Delta Gamma sorority, Aniquesterian Club, Olde Florida and Wyndemere golf clubs in Naples, Fla.

Connie was a joy to be around. She was a true giver in every sense, especially listening and offering her beautiful spirit. Her family will miss many things including her beautiful smile, kind eyes, her story telling, animated facial expressions, her sense of humor and her unconditional love. Gardening, traveling, golf and playing cards were her favorite hobbies. Connie was also an accomplished pianist and artist.

A devoted and loving mother, Connie was the happiest in the company of her family and friends. Her faith allowed the fruit of her spirit to work in all circumstances. Connie was humble, generous, giving, all of which she demonstrated through her daily words and actions. She was the bridge that led her daughter and many others to Christ. Connie touched the lives of all those with whom she came in contact with.

Connie will be greatly missed by her son, David (Adina) Haimbaugh; her daughter, Elizabeth (John) Demaree; her daughter-in-law, Michelle Jentz Haimbaugh; her 12 grandchildren, Andrew, Joseph, Robert and John Jr. Demaree, Charlie, Samantha and Patrick Haimbaugh, Connie, Christopher, David, Preston and Bentley Haimbaugh; her sister, Barbara Bowling Mell, as well as the many friends she leaves behind. Connie is now reunited with her husband of 52 years, John W. Haimbaugh, and their son, Robert M. Haimbaugh.

The Haimbaugh and Demaree families have been blessed by many wonderful caretakers including the My Extra Hands Agency, Camilo Ontirveros and especially Marie Whitehead (Connie’s special earth angel). Extended gratitude to Dr. Carl Lundstrum and the staff of the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn., and Dr. Douglas Franke of Northside Internal Medicine.      

Family and friends gathered Saturday, Dec. 8, at St. Luke’s United Methodist Church, 100 W. 86th St, Indianapolis. A service celebrating Connie’s life and faith was also on Saturday in the Roberts Chapel at St. Luke’s United Methodist Church.  Following the service, Connie was laid to rest next to her husband, John, at Zionsville Cemetery.

Memorial contributions may be made to St. Luke’s United Methodist Church, 100 W. 86th St., Indianapolis, IN 46260.  Arrangements have been entrusted to Flanner and Buchanan-Zionsville.  Online condolences may be made at www.flannerbuchanan.com.
