October 20, 1955 ~ December 5, 2020

Born in: Owensboro, KY
Resided in: Owensboro, KY

Connie Pike Mongold, 65, of Owensboro, passed away December 5, 2020 at Owensboro Health Regional Hospital. Connie was born October 20, 1955 in Owensboro to the late Lawrence and Emma Jean Smith Pike, Jr.

Hard work and Connie went hand-in-hand, having retired from Grandy’s after 33 years, where she served as the General Manager. Connie was a member, and certainly a proud one, of Panther Creek Baptist Church, where she, too, was heavily involved. All about her grandchildren, Connie was selfless, hardworking, and made sure to attend all their games and sporting events, proudly penned as the loudest in the stands. She loved to travel, was quite eclectic, enjoyed taking pictures and gnomes, and was named “everybody’s Granny” by too many to count. An avid NASCAR fan, you would find her rooting on her favorite driver, Dale Earnhart, Jr.

Aside from her parents, Connie is preceded in death by her husband, Larry Mongold; son Benjamin Knight; and a brother, Larry Pike.

Surviving are her children, Chad (Jaime) Mongold and Jeff (Amber) Mongold; five grandchildren, Traven Mongold, Landon Mongold, Logan Mongold, Keaton Mongold and Libby Mongold; sister-in-law, Sherry Pike; two nieces, Amy Hoenicke and Beth Trogden; and best friend, Ruth Johnson.

Funeral services will be held at Haley McGinnis Funeral Home & Crematory, with Brother Eddie Duke officiating. Burial will follow in Pleasant Grove Cemetery.

    Sincere sympathy to each of you. My family (Murphy) were neighbors of Connie’s parents while Connie and Larry were growing up in Curdsville. They were great neighbors and her mom, Imogene, stayed in touch with my mom by never failing to send cards for every occasion to her up until her death. It has been a few years since I have seen Connie but she sure looked like her mom, especially that smile. May God give you peace and comfort during this sorrowful time and may Connie rest in peace.
