Constance Hoselton

Thursday, May 11, 2017

Constance "Connie" Ann Hoselton was born June 7, 1943, in Marshall, Mich., as the oldest of three children to Charles A. and H. Mae Shaffer.

Connie was a long-time resident of Boise. After graduating from Mountain Home High School in 1961, she married and raised three children.

Connie is best known for being a wonderful mom and grandmother, an amazing cook for gatherings for her friends and family, a huge Bronco football fan, a long-term patron of the Idaho Shakespeare Festival and a respected nurse. She was nice, kind and generous, and her gift was caring for others.

She worked at St. Luke’s Hospital from 1968 to 2011, even after being diagnosed with cancer. Her doctors describe her as a medical miracle, having survived 20 years after her diagnosis. She passed away May 7, 2017, surrounded by her family.

The family would especially like to thank Dr. Kreisle and the staff at the Mountain States Tumor Institute (MSTI) and the kind and caring staff at The Bridge at Valley View.

Connie became a Registered Nurse in 1964 after graduating from Boise Junior College. In 1978, she graduated from Boise State University with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing.

She is survived by her former husband, Gary; her children, Charlie, Doug and Catherine; her grandchildren, Spencer, Luella, Charlotte, Gage and Noelle; and her sisters, Claudia Coleman and Charlotte Hillman. Her additional family includes Theresa, Kirsten, Sean, Al, Shawn, Christie, Dylan, Paige and Harmony. Connie was also blessed with many close and cherished friends and had an amazing life.

Special thanks to her best friend, Carol Bodnar, for always being there for her. We will all miss her terribly.
