Constance Gail Porter

Porter, Gail

June 28, 1937 — April 30, 2013

Constance Gail Porter, 75 of Davis passed away peacefully on Tuesday, April 30, 2013. Connie had been the recipient of an extremely successful heart transplant in June 2006. Unfortunately, she was diagnosed with stage-2 cancer in September 2012, which just recently returned. Her family feels extremely blessed to have had seven extra memory-filled years with her.

Connie was born in Crookston, Minn., on June 28, 1937. She attended the Kaiser School of Nursing in Los Angeles and worked as a registered nurse for Kaiser Permanente. Connie also worked in some smaller clinics in her later years until she retired in her 60s.

While residing in Half Moon Bay, she and her husband, Craig Porter owned and ran the Half Moon Bay Feed and Fuel until 1986 when they retired and relocated to Auburn. She moved to Davis in October 2005 after Craig passed away. She had a great seven years and thoroughly enjoyed spending time with her family and her dog Skippy.

Connie is survived by her daughters, Jennifer Short and Pam Englund; (Barry Short, Sandyn and Ryan Connolly, Paula Short, Becky Short and Kevin Englund); sisters Bunny Pringle and Barbie Morton; and other family and friends.

A celebration of Connie’s life runs from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday, June 2, at Englund Farms, 21290 County Road 97 in Woodland.

Connie had a strong soft spot for animals and children. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be given to California Animal Shelter Friends Inc. at 530-662-4989 or http://casf.rescuegroups.org, or EMQ Families First Yolo Crisis Nursery at 530-758-6680 or http://www.emqff.org/services/yolo_nursery.shtml?gclid=CIuFx4OUlLcCFWbhQgodZ3EAkQ.
