Lavada “Connie” Gorman born 11/8/1931 returned to her Heavenly Father’s arms on 7/14/2019. Although bittersweet, we are grateful her fight with cancer is over. She is sorely missed by all who knew her. Those who follow in her footsteps, are now challenged to live up to the extraordinary life that she exemplified.
Mama was born in the family farmhouse, near Boynton, Oklahoma. She attended Liberty School up until moving to Oklahoma City in 1945. She played forward on the girls basketball team and graduated from Capitol Hill High School. She met the love of her life, Joseph Edward Gorman, Jr. while working at the Criterion Theater. They married on 12/2/1950 and remained married for 51 years until Dad met Jesus on August 26, 2001.
Mama joins her Mother, Addie Dill, sisters, Peggy Matthews and Nancy Smith, and her special Aunt and Uncle, Marie and William McCollum in heaven. She is survived by her 4 children, Terri Gorman, Lani Misner, Joseph Gorman III, and Trudi Gorman, Sister Billie Johnson, brother, Jimmy Dill and wife Joyce. Mama doted on her 5 grandchildren, Janette Armstrong and husband Brandon, Jared Misner, Jodi Farmer, and husband Joel, Lauren Dillion and Joseph Misner. She is “GiGi” to 10 great grandchildren.
Mama was chosen to be one of the first women to input classified data during the Cold War, into the first IBM computers. She was a Precinct chair for the Republican Party in 1964, preschool teacher, Sunday School teacher, homeroom mother, PTA president, Girl and Cub Scout Leader, NE High school Registrar, President of NW Classen High School Booster Club, best in sales for home builders, counselor, best friend, and cheerleader when supporting her family during trying or fun times.
Our family extends a special thank you for the excellent care given to her by Mercy Home Care, the staff of Crossroads Hospice, and Bellview Rehab. Her celebration of life will be held at 10 AM, on Monday, 7-22-19, at Vondel L. Smith & Son Mortuary, 13125 N. MacArthur Blvd, Oklahoma City, OK 73142.
