Connie Geneal Ekker King, age 80, passed away on February 9th, in St. George, Utah. What’s not to love about a woman who loved her children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren - almost as much as she loved the Utah Jazz, Pepsi, Mesquite, and Canasta.

She was born January 23rd, 1941 to Darys and Clella Ekker in Bicknell, Utah. Connie grew up in Hanksville, Utah, and had three siblings, Perry, Ina, and Lamont Ekker. She lived in many places around Utah, but Hanskville always had a special place in her heart. Her father passed down his love of music to her and her siblings, and it played a huge part in her life. She was a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints and had faith in our Heavenly Father’s plan.

She married Robert Hoggatt and they raised five children in Price. They later divorced. Connie then married Tom King and spent her time in Antimony, Utah. She owned the Antimony Merc. and loved entertaining visitors, hunters, and travelers with good food and live music. She was over the 4-H club, and loved singing at all the town parties. Some of her favorite memories of her life was from her time in Antimony. She divorced and moved to Cedar City, to be closer to her family and grandkids.

Connie was an extremely significant part of her family’s lives. She raised not only her own children, but step children and grandchildren. She has always been greatly involved in all her grandkids lives, and her face just lit up immensely to see her great grandchildren.

She was very proud of her accomplishment of going through the Police Academy at the age of 55, was a Certified Correctional Officer, and worked as a Culinary Supervisor at the Iron County Jail. People would request transfers to Iron County just to be able to have her delicious food.

Connie is survived by her siblings, Ina Bloxham and Perry Ekker. Her three children, Sandra (Bruce), Chris (Kathryn), and Mike (Eveline). Her ten Grandchildren, Aubree, Rikki (David), Randi (Duane), Krisdale (Evan), BJ (Amie), Brooke (Randy), Chelsie, Kensie (Shawn), Holly (Casey), and Jake. Her twelve Great-grandchildren, Kendra, Brynnly, Cash, Annabelle, Carter, Reagan, Peyten, Paxton, Preslee, Jaeden, Mason, and Liliana.

She was predeceased by her parents, brother Lamont, and two children, Ricky and Shellie.

A graveside service will be held Friday, February 19th, at 11:00 a.m. at the Hanksville Cemetery.
