Connie Book

Tooele, UT- Connie Russom Chidester Book, 59 passed away Tuesday August 14, 2018 following a courageous battle with cancer.

Born December 31, 1958 in Murray UT to George Russom Sr. and Donna Krajnc Russom.  She was married to Fredrick Chidester Sr. in 1973 and, together had 4 children, Kim (Dan), Jeramie (Tiffany), Rick (Sierra) and Jeff.  She later married Steve Book and they have been married for 21 years.  Connie was blessed with 10 grandchildren, 2 great grandchildren and looking forward to 2 more.  Also surviving are her brother George Jr. (Marie) Russom and her best friend and sister, Patricia Alder, along with her Mother Donna and many nieces and newphews.

Connie’s greatest joy was spending time with her grandchildren.  She wore her heart on her sleeve and wasn’t afraid to show it.  Connie also loved fishing and camping.  She was musically and artistically inclined and could pick up an instrument and play by sound alone.  She was a “take the bull by the horns kind of gal” and was never afraid to say what was on her mind.  Her favorite saying was “dynamite comes in small packages”.

She will be deeply missed by all who knew and loved her.

A graveside service will be held at 2:00 pm on Friday, August 17th at the Tooele City Cemetery.
