Connie M. Smith, 73, of East Wenatchee died peacefully surrounded by her loving family on October 18, 2013. Connie was born to George and Clella Leland on July 1, 1940 in Bozeman MT. Connie married David Smith in Wenatchee on February 11, 1958 and raised three children. Connie worked as a cocktail server and bartender at various Wenatchee area establishments.
