August 17, 1939 – March 29, 2022
Connie Darlene Bartlett, 82, of Hopewell, VA, passed away March 29, 2022. Born August 17, 1939 in Valley Head, West Virginia, she was the daughter of the late Dennis H. Arbogast and Gledes E. Smith. In addition to her parents, Mrs. Bartlett was preceded in death by her loving husband of 61 years, Jerry D. Bartlett; and brother, Mitchell Arbogast. She is survived by her sons, Jeffrey Dean Bartlett (Denise), Gregory Alan Bartlett (Crystal); three grandchildren, Erin Vaughan (Jacob), Jacob Bartlett, and Matthew Bartlett; one great-grandson, Emory Vaughan; siblings, Dora Parrack, Elaine Hogan, and Vester “Buck” Arbogast, and many more loving family and friends. She worked at the FBI in Washington, DC for 2 years before marrying her childhood sweetheart and settling in Hopewell, VA, where they lived happily for the rest of their lives. She worked for many years as a bookkeeper for Covington Plumbing and Heating. A longtime member of the Hopewell Opti-Mrs Club, Connie served as President and Treasurer. She particularly enjoyed her time spent with her grandchildren. She loved the outdoors, whether spending time with family and friends in the mountains of West Virginia or on the beaches of Cape Hatteras. You would always find her keeping a close watch over her beloved fishing pole. She will always be remembered as a loving daughter, sister, wife, mother and “Nana” to her family, and a loyal and caring friend to those who met her.
