Constance "Connie" Cullinan, 87, died Friday morning, June 8, 2012 at Southwestern Vermont Medical Center after a short illness. She was the widow of Gardner B. Cullinan who died in 2005.
A Cambridge native, Connie was born November 8, 1924, the only child of Harley N. and Leola Collins Moseley. After graduating from Cambridge Union School, class of 1942, she worked for several years for the State of New York offices in Albany until her marriage to Gardner on September 3, 1949.
Connie worked with her husband at the Washington County Post (America's oldest weekly newspaper, est. 1788) until it was sold to the Horicon Newspaper Group. She continued to run the printing operations at Washington County Printers (next to Asgrow) until joining her husband at Mary McClellan Hospital as executive secretary shortly after his appointment as hospital administrator. They both retired in 1978.
She was a member of the Cambridge United Presbyterian Church and a volunteer for many organizations.
Connie loved to dance and was an avid card player. In her later years she delighted in shopping trips with her friends, as well as frequent outings to the Burger Den and hairdresser. Often during hot summer days she could be seen providing her husband a refreshing drink as he mowed their huge lawn.
Survivors include three children, John E. Cullinan and wife Debbie of Arlington, Robert Cullinan and wife Bregt of Colorado Springs, Colorado and Pamela Cullinan of Shushan; two grandchildren, Christopher Potter-Cullinan and Tara Cullinan, and three great-grandchildren, Jordan, Bradley and Alessio. A grandson, Craig Potter, died in 2005.
.A memorial service will be held on Friday, August 10, 2012 at the Cambridge, United Presbyterian Church, at 10:30 AM with a reception following in the Emma Holden room.
Her ashes will be interred at Gerald B. H. Solomon Saratoga Natioal Cemetery at 1:30 PM the same day.
