Connie A. Windbush


Sunrise: April 30, 1950

Sunset: February 6, 2024

Connie Alice Windbush, a faithful servant of the Lord, was called to her heavenly home on February 6, 2024, at the age of 73. Born on April 30, 1950, in Lobato, West Virginia, to Albert Sr. and Myrdis Allen, Connie grew to embody the virtues of humility, gratitude, and respect for all of God’s creation.

Throughout her life, Connie walked in the light of the Lord, serving as a deaconess and living out her faith with a wise, matter-of-fact personality that was grounded in the teachings of Christ. She was a beacon of loyalty and kindness, loving unconditionally and living a life marked by honesty and integrity.

Connie attended Matewan High School in Matewan, WV, before answering the call to serve others as an LPN at Appalachian Regional Hospital. She later served her community as a Customer Service Manager at Food Lion. Her greatest vocation, however, was that of a homemaker, where she nurtured her family with the same love she extended to her church and community.

A dedicated member of New Weeping Mary Missionary Baptist Church, Connie’s life was a testament to her unwavering faith. She found joy in fellowship, whether it was through spending precious moments with her family, serving her church, or engaging in hobbies such as bowling, tennis, and immersing herself in the study of the Scriptures.

Connie was preceded in death by her father and mother Albert Sr. and Myrdis Allen, as well as her sister Sheila Harrell and brother James “Jimmy” Allen.

Her legacy of love is carried on by her beloved husband, Michael Windbush; her cherished daughter, Jessica Revies (Son in law Rajohn Revies); her sons, Jesse and Marlon Windbush; and her adored grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Connie also leaves behind her brothers Wilbert Allen (sister in law Samantha Allen), Albert Allen Jr., and Bryan Allen (sister in law Sandra Allen), along with many who found in her a spiritual grandmother.

The family expresses their heartfelt gratitude for the prayers and support during this time of bereavement. Connie’s earthly departure is a somber occasion, yet it is also a moment to reflect on a life well-lived and a soul at peace in the arms of the Almighty.

    I will remember Sister Connie Windbush as a one who lived a life of service, and assisted her husband, Deacon Michael Windbush with church services at both Chesapeake Health and Princess Ane Health & Rehabs. Her loyalty and humble service spoke of her faith. I pray God will comfort the family in this bereavement season, but I know she is at home. Prayerfully, Roberta Gross

    This is a part of life that I don’t wish anyone to go through. But those that believe in the Lord know that that for sure it is an inevitable door that leads to rest and the embrace of our Savior. What a better place to be at! May you find comfort in knowing that she is secured and safe, at peace and at the feet of our Lord. Erin and family, we love you.
