August 30, 1939 ~ March 6, 2023


Early in the morning on March 6, 2023, Miss Connie Ewbank went home to see the Lord.  She was 83 years old.

Constance Louise Frazier was born on August 30, 1939 in Union City, Indiana to Bob and Mary Frazier.  She grew up traveling between the Union City house and the lake cottage her father purchased the summer of her 13th birthday.  Sister to Barbara Frazier, Connie found the man she would marry through Barb’s new husband Bruce Whipple and married Edward Ewbank on August 22, 1959.

Together Connie & Ed had two children, Michael & MaryAnn, who joined older sisters Elizabeth & Christine, daughters to Ed’s deceased first wife & high school sweetheart, Anne DeCrow.  The family settled in Webster Groves, MO where Connie kept busy writing a children’s book, Insect Zoo, managing the office for a chiropractor and eventually opening her own store Quilt & Stitch and an online pattern design company Butterfly Stitches.

After Ed’s death in 1991, Connie moved to Denham Springs, LA in 2005 where she found new friends & family through Abundant Life church and her quilting guilds–Krewe of Quilters, GSQA and River City–where she taught classes and pursued her passion of quilting for children’s charities.

She is survived by her sister, all 4 children, 3 grandchildren and 3 great-grandchildren but will be missed & remembered by many more.

Visitation will be held on Friday, March 10, 2023 beginning at 10:00am. Funeral services to be held at 12:00pm at the Seale Funeral Home in Denham Springs.

We wish to thank the wonderful community of Abundant Life Church, St Joseph’s Hospice, and her quilting friends, for their help & support.  Please consider donating any memorials to the charity closest to your heart.

    Connie was always so good to me. She was filled with peace and was a true overcomer. She shared her passion for quilting with so many people. When I opened my quilt shop, Connie came to visit and offered help and advice. It was so appreciated. I will always be thankful for her friendship and wisdom. You will be missed, Connie!

    Connie had a gift with creating quilts with fabric. Her creativity and productivity inspired many. I am grateful for knowing her through local guilds and the work of Wasted Women Bee.

    As Connie’s fortnightly housecleaner, it was nice to be so needed and appreciated by her. It was a pleasure to occasionally help with household things beyond the usual clean; change a filter, look for keys, defrost the freezer, etc. We knew we could each adjust to the others weekly schedule if necessary. It was nice to chat and catch up with her each time I came.

    I enjoyed taking a class that Connie taught! You could always depend on her smile, even when you knew she must be tired and unwell.

    I really enjoyed meeting Connie through our quilt quild , Krewe of Quilters . She always had a smile . Her laughter was quite contagious .Her skills as a quilter brought herself and us much joy . Our group will surely miss her presence. We hope the family holds dear the memories of Connie . May she rest peacefully forever.

    I have several of Connie’s quilt patterns and attended one of her classes. She was a lovely lady and helped me, a beginning quilter, a great deal. I’m so sorry to hear of her passing.
