Costanza “Connie” Pepera Wednesday June 20, 1923 – Saturday December 19, 2020 Beloved wife of Edward Pepera. Loving mother of Fred ( Toni) Pepera, Karl Pepera and Gerald (Cathy) Pepera. Adoring grandmother of Christina Pepera, Noah Pepera, Michael (Jenn) Pepera, Sarah (Justin) Walker, Stacey (Chris) Bain, Joel (Allyson) Pepera, Heather (Paul) Shiel and Phillip Pepera. Cherished great grandmother of Gabriel Pepera, Edric Pepera, Corrina Pepera, Lilly Pepera, Andrew Pepera, Thomas Bain, Izzy Bain, William Bain, Thomas Shiel, Emma Shiel, Taelyn Walker, Kaelia Walker, Noah Pepera, Isiah Pepera, Jeremiah Pepera, and Asia Pepera. Connie was a loving, caring and nurturing mother. She was instrumental in making sure her three boys succeeded in life. Fred pursued an art degree and a successful career in commercial art. Karl went on to be certified in all aspects of HVAC and ran a successful commercial business. Gerald pursued a degree in electrical engineering and had a 40 year career as a senior project engineer. Connie came from a coal mining family in West Virginia which instilled in her a great work ethic. She co-owned and managed with her husband Edward the Winston Motel in Detroit, while still caring for her family. Mom loved to cook and her passion was making sure her family was well fed with healthy nutritious food. Connie and her husband were enthusiastic golfers, hitting the courses well into their 80’s. Her love of exercising especially walking is what kept her in shape; she had a saying, “I’ve been walking my whole life.” And she truly did. Whenever her boys wanted to get her attention or show love for mom, they would say “ma you’re the greatest”! She was the most inspiring mom anyone could ask for. While mom was not blessed with daughters, she cherished her daughter-in-laws as if they were her own. If you wish to honor our mom in some way, we ask that you donate to a charity of your choice in her memory.
