Connie Lee Shipton

March 17, 1972 - February 11, 2023


It is with sad hearts the family of Connie Lee Shipton announce her sudden passing on February 11, 2023 in Surrey, BC at the young age of 50. Connie was born in Lacombe, Alberta on March 17, 1972. She will be lovingly remembered and in the hearts of her children Emmalee Jaye and Layton Lee, her mother Leanne; her father Wesley; her sister Jalayne, and brothers Jason and Kelly; along with many other family members and friends from multiple avenues in her life.

Connie successfully completed high school, had Layton in 1990 and moved on to attend Olds College for Ferrier Studies. She successfully started her own business in Rocky, moved to BC and later back to Rocky, where Emmalee was born in 2007. Connie was our daughter, sister, mother, friend, cousin, aunty, niece ; and the sweetest, most loving, most caring child. She was talented, funny, and known to be a little scrappy. She loved music, singing her heart out and dancing. She loved going camping and having a weiner roast, being at the river and road trippin’ with her friends Morley Hazen and Robbie May, and pretty much anything outdoors.

She loved animals, especially connected to her horses, Hocker and Candy, along with many of the farm animals that her and her brother Jason grew up with. She loved and prospered at rodeo, many times beating the boys in steer riding and leading the way in barrel racing. She had a huge passion for track horse racing, and loved competing at the Tees Rodeo.

Connie lived a challenging life but overcame many hurdles. She loved EVERYBODY with her huge heart and addictive laugh and smile. She offered up any help she could to anyone else in need, even in hard times of her own.

A memorial service will be held at Homeglen Hall Community Centre on March 5 th , 2023 at 2pm. Doors will be open at 1pm. The hall is located at 11041 Twp Rd 443 (Hwy 53, Ponoka County) between Ponoka and Rimbey.

In lieu of flowers, the family has asked that donations be made to her children or the Canadian Mental Health Association. A link will also be provided to everyone to view Connie’s memorial website

In the famous words of Connie, “ Always Stay Humble and Kind”, and .. “ I’m outta Here “.

From: Shelly Povaschuk-Brake
Relation: Schoolmates

I’m very saddened to learn of Connie’s passing and send deepest condolences to all who loved her. Connie and I graduated from high school together and I’ll always remember her spunk. I hadn’t seen her in years and was happy to run into her a few years back at no Frills. She was very open about her struggles and was proud of herself for getting her life back on track for the sake of her children & family. Connie was a sweet person and I pray that now she can rest peacefully.
