Connie Mae (Boes) Loken was born on Sept 19,1941 in Bemidji, MN to Velma (White) and Rudy Boes. They moved to Big Falls, MN when Connie was young and she graduated from Little Fork Big Falls High school in 1959. She married the love of her life Robert Loken on Nov 28, 1966 in Sisseton, SD. They started their life together and lived in Big Falls, MN until 1987 when they moved their family to Monticello, MN, then in 1997 Robert and Connie moved to Foley, MN. Connie was an amazing woman who touched every soul she came in contact with. She had a way of leaving an everlasting impact on someone even in brief encounters. Over the years she worked as everything from tree planter to personal care attendent. But her most important work was that of raising her family and teaching us and showing us the love that God has to give. She was truly touched by his hand in everything that she did and said. To know her was to love her and want to be with her more. So it was with a very heavy heart that her family let go of her physical presence here on Earth on Jan 27, 2015.
