Connie Joyce Tolbert, 78, of formerly of Dewey, peacefully passed away on Monday, September 30, 2019, in Midland, TX. Connie was born in Durant, OK, on July 10, 1941 to Conley and Joyce (Pool) George. As a small child her family moved to Bartlesville, OK, where she grew up.

She loved drawing, art, and sewing, always working on a project for her children and grandchildren. She taught Sunday school and children’s church for many years.
