Conception “Connie” Henriquez, 71, believing in the power and strength of God’s Loving Grace and the beauty and peace that would await her, passed away on Tuesday, September 25, 2018 in Philadelphia Pennsylvania.
Born in Manhattan, NY, she was the daughter of the late Jose A. Henriquez and the late Bernarda Mensonet-Henriquez.
Connie proudly served her Country in the United States Army, during the Vietnam era, and the United States Navy, where she concluded her career working directly for the Inspector General.
She loved her Naval career and the unity it strengthened with her fellow Veterans. During the past year, Connie enjoyed quality discussions and activities geared towards Veteran rights.
