Constance J. "Connie" Williams

March 8, 1938 — December 7, 2023

New Durham


Constance J. (Trombly) Williams, age 85, passed peacefully at Granite VNA Hospice House in Concord, New Hampshire on Thursday, December 7, 2023.

She was born in Manchester, New Hampshire on March 8, 1938. She was the daughter of the late Frank H. and Mary E. (Shea) Trombly.

She was a student at Mt. St. Mary Seminary and after graduation went on to nursing school at Sacred Heart School of Nursing. After several years of service at Manchester’s Elliot Hospital, she then went on to continue her career in Human Resources. Connie was an HR professional initially for Digital Equipment Corp (DEC) and 17 years later retiring from Hewlett Packard (HP).

Connie married the late Cecil A. Williams in the Spring of 1981. That took her from Nashua to Litchfield and ultimately New Durham, NH.

She leaves behind a daughter, Catherine Mary (Sullivan) Schofield and her husband Kirkland Schofield now of New Durham, NH. Her son, John S. Sullivan Jr. and his wife Carrie Sullivan of Nashua as well as Step-Daughters Cristen Ann (Williams) Santa and her husband Alan Santa of Olathe, KS and Cherie Williams also of Olathe, KS.

The joy of her life was her 10 grandchildren. Including: Sheala C. Schofield, Samuel R. Schofield and his wife Paige (Fleming) Schofield, John Alexander Schofield, Aidan J. Sullivan, John S. Sullivan III, Caroline J. Sullivan, Jacob C. Sloan, Hannah R. Sloan, Avery M. Sloan and EmmaLynn R. Williams.

She was also blessed to have three great-grandchildren including: Lacey and Finley Schofield and Audryana DeCiceo.

She was pre-deceased by her brothers; William Trombly of Manchester, NH, Frank Trombly of Arizona and James Trombly of New Hampshire. She is survived by her sister Catherine Trombly of Walpole, MA and her brother Daniel Trombly of Franklin, NH.

Connie was dedicated to her community. She was an active parishioner as a Eucharistic Minister at both St. Francis Assisi Parish in Litchfield, NH and St. Katherine Drexel Parish in Alton, NH. While a parishioner at St. John’s in Hudson, NH she started a holiday tradition known as COOKIE DAY for the mentally handicapped (later known as Rainbow Seekers).

As a proud NH native she enjoyed all this state has to offer. She waterskied and snow skied. She enjoyed Merrymeeting Lake, Baxter Lake and Lake Winnipesauke. Going out to eat in Wolfeboro after church on a Saturday was one of her favorite things to do. She loved a good boat ride looking and listening for loons all while watching her grandchildren learn to waterski, just like her.

The entire family would like to thank the staff at Granite VNA Hospice House, Catholic Medical Center and Huggins Hospital in Wolfeboro, NH. The dedicated staff helped Connie through these past several months.
