After living a courageous, adventurous life on her own terms, Constance Louise (Fox) Bibyk, passed away peacefully in Edmonds, WA on April 28th, 2021. She was a best friend to her husband of 26 years Andrew Michael Bibyk. She will be lovingly remembered by him, her brother Will Fox, sister Libby Fox Howard; her in-laws, her nieces, nephews, and friends.
Connie was born in Albuquerque, New Mexico on August 23rd, 1956. She was preceded in death by her mother, Frances Fox from Chicago, Illinois and her father, Robert Fox from Boston, Massachusetts. As a child, she and her family toured every state except Alaska and Hawaii visiting relatives, beaches, national parks, and other places of interest.
She graduated from Del Norte High School (Class of 1974) in Albuquerque and received her Bachelors of Science degree in Nursing from the University of New Mexico in 1985. Excited to explore more of the country, Connie moved to Seattle, Washington where she worked as a cardiac nurse at the UW Medical Center. From there she moved to Laurel, Florida to work as a home care nurse. Following that she lived and worked for awhile as an ICU/telemetry nurse in Salt Lake City, Utah. Then in 1995 Connie returned to Seattle where she met her husband Andrew. Their lives continued with love and joyful contentment in marriage.
Connie was highly intelligent, self-reliant, an excellent cook, thoughtful gardner, creative artist, an avid and eclectic reader with an insatiable interest in the world around her. She especially enjoyed her many pets, research, puzzles, nutrition, and the ocean beaches of Washington state. She worked for many years helping others as a nurse or as a volunteer. As a nurse she was nurturing, caring and dedicated in her role. Her witty sense of humor brought joy to her patients, friends, and family. Connie enjoyed travel and visited countries in Europe and Asia. She was a best friend, companion, and supporter of those in need. We will cherish her memory and her thoughtful, loving soul for years to come.
