Conni taught many undergraduate and graduate students in the Accounting IT Audit disciplines during her 21- year career at University of Houston-Clear Lake. Conni enjoyed traveling, swimming, snorkeling, scuba diving, and hiking. Conni enjoyed many family reunion gatherings in Anna Maria, Florida and spent many pleasant weekends at the family ranch in Loyal Valley, Texas.

  4. What a difficult loss for so many. My friendship with Conni was through our shared love of the water. Conni was incredibly disciplined about her pool workouts; she was a great motivator. She always showed up at the pool with a sunny disposition that you couldn’t help but be drawn to. There were 8 of us at the pool that frequently swam together and enjoyed monthly luncheons; we called ourselves The Mermaids. Conni was the Mermaid that kept us all smiling. She will be missed dearly.
    My deepest condolences to her family for their loss ❤️

  5. I am so glad that I got to know Conni through our pool connection at the fitness center. Conni was always smiling and talking to everyone plus we were always in awe of her IM prowess! Our Mermaid group became very close with lunches and texts and Conni will be always remembered and sorely missed.

    My heart goes out to her family and I am so sorry for your loss. We all knew how much she loved her family both here in the Houston area and in her beloved Florida.

  7. My heart sank when news reached me. Conni’s warmth and kindness were always visible at the swimming pool. Always asking me about my day and my family resonated with me, truly a loving and caring person. I swim now to honor her trying to learn every swim stroke just to see Connie smile and laugh knowing that I am nearly drowning trying to mimic her butterfly stroke. I thank God for allowing me the opportunity to know Conni. ‘One more lap for Conni!!!’

    I petition to God to provide strength during this difficult time, and I will keep the family in my prayers.

  8. I got to know Conni through our Mermaid group at our fitness center pool. She was always so funny and friendly and warm. She enjoyed her IM swimming and was so dedicated to the “worst stroke ever!” We had many laughs and shared stories at the pool or at our group luncheons. I will miss her, as will all the “Mermaids.”
    My sympathy to all her family & friends. 🙏🙏

  11. Like so many others writing here I got to know Conni thru our swimming. Back in 1997 I was new to Texas and the Houston area but Conni never met a stranger. We would share a lane and I would marvel at her butterfly which is a stroke not all serious swimmers ever master but Conni did. She was always delighted to see you and share outside pool time as well. She and Ryan would run over to take care of our dogs when we were stuck at MD Anderson. And she, Maury, and Ryan helped me thru my loss. My heart goes out to Maury and Ryan and the whole Roth family. Conni is a gem that will never lose its shine.

  12. I worked with Conni at San Antonio Savings years ago. I still talk about her today when I describe what a boss should be like . She made work fun and was always so respectful to everybody. I learned so much from her and we developed a wonderful friendship. I’m so thankful we reconnected several years ago and we picked up right where we left off. My heart goes out to the family.
