Obituary for Connie Petrocco

Connie Evon Petrocco, 65, passed away quietly at home Wednesday, April 8, 2020, after an extended illness. She was born in Buckhannon, West Virginia on November 12, 1954, to Edmond M. Daughtery and Alice M. Nicholson.
Connie was a graduate of Philip Barbour High School in Philippi, West Virginia. She worked toward her degree in respiratory therapy while working at Alderson-Broaddus Hospital, also in Philippi. She continued seeking her degree after transferring to Warren General Hospital, (now Mercy Health St. Joseph Hospital), in Warren, Ohio.
Following her career in respiratory therapy, she sought to achieve one of her life-long dreams of becoming a police officer. She attended the Western Reserve Police Academy, where after graduation, became an auxiliary police officer for the Cortland Police Department. Her loved ones say that she never fully gave up on her “inner detective”, by keeping her love for police work alive through watching police and detective TV shows.
She married the love of her life, Anthony “Tony” Petrocco III of Cortland, on March 9, 1981, in Daytona Beach, Florida. The two motorcycle enthusiasts had a spontaneous wedding during Daytona Bike Week, with their cousin, Anna Blosic and life-long friend, Ric Prince as the only ones in attendance. They celebrated 39 years of marriage last month.
There are no words for how loved she is and how missed she will be. Her family is at peace knowing she’s flitting among the bees.
She is survived by her husband, Tony, her two wonderful children, Tessa E. (Michael) Wilson of Reynoldsburg, Ohio and Anthony Petrocco IV of Cortland and her mother-in-law, Laura M. Petrocco, also of Cortland, Ohio.
Preceding Connie were her parents and her father-in-law, Anthony Petrocco, Jr.
