     Connie Jo Galbraith, age 62, of Des Moines, IA, formerly of Sac City, IA, passed away on Sunday, January 14, 2018, at Mercy Medical Center in Des Moines, IA.  Connie was born on April 22, 1955, in Storm Lake, IA, to LeRoy and Ruth (O’Brien) Galbraith.  She was baptized and confirmed at the First Presbyterian Church in Sac City and graduated from Sac City High School in 1973.  She completed her degree in Journalism at Drake University in 1977.

     Connie worked for the Des Moines Register RAGBRAI from May 2000 through November 2006, working her way up from secretary, to marketing manager, to Operations Manager.  She won a trip to the largest bike show in the country in Las Vegas and was nominated for the employee of the year.  She then worked at Prairie Meadow Racetrack and Casino Guest Services. Her strong communication skills and experience in public relations was one of her many skills.

     Connie enjoyed reading, biking, and especially loved the time she took her parents on an Alaskan cruise.  She loved to spend time with her parents and siblings and special nieces and nephews. Connie had a great love for her favorite companion, Ryder, her Samoyed.

     Survivors include her sisters: Terri Coats and husband Bob of Sac City, and Debbie Flinn of Indianola, IA; her brother Mike Galbraith and wife Lori of Sac City; many nieces, nephews, and extended family members.

“Very sorry to hear of Connie's passing. As often happens, we lose track of classmates as time goes on. She was a very dear friend in Sac City class of '73 and also in our Presbyterian Church student functions. Connie was a lovely gal inside and out. Memories we will always cherish, and I will hold on to those dear memories of Connie. She will be missed by all that knew her. May God be with all of you during this difficult time. My prayers and thoughts.. .. Wendy "Wayt" Staiert”
