Constance (Connie) Ann Noland Matteucci, 77, of Dulles, Virginia, passed away peacefully on December 9, 2019 in Leesburg, Virginia.
Connie was born on January 9, 1942 in Chanute, Kansas to Mary Gertrude and William James Noland. At the age of three while living in Kansas City, her father died suddenly and she and her mother moved back to Chanute and later to Erie, Kansas where she spent her childhood years. Connie attended Mount Saint Scholastica College and Pittsburg State University where she graduated with a bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education. Shortly after graduation, she married her college sweetheart, Frank Andrew Matteucci, who died in 2012 after 48 years of marriage.
She was preceded in death by her parents and stepfather, Richard Wayne Salb. She is survived by her only daughter, Kathy (James) Policaro of Leesburg, Virginia and three grandchildren: Brandon (Jessica) Moser, Noland Moser and Alexandra Policaro. She is also survived by a younger brother, William (Bobbie Fletcher) Noland of Puyallup, Washington.
Connie attended Mount Saint Scholastica College in Atchison, Kansas before transferring to Pittsburgh State University, where she was selected as homecoming queen. She was active in Sigma Sigma Sigma sorority and enjoyed lifelong friendships with many of her colleagues. She also maintained deep relationships with her classmates and friends from her high school years. Connie was a social butterfly and delighted in visiting with family and friends.
Connie’s interest in all sports, especially watching football and playing tennis, was the topic of family lore. Connie was an avid and skilled tennis player who played competitively into her 70s and never missed an opportunity for a match. Connie was also a great fan of the cinema. She and daughter Kathy loved going to the movies followed by dinner and a nice glass of wine.
Connie’s life was enriched and sustained by her beloved grandchildren. She cherished her time with them and followed their lives closely, celebrating their successes and offering encouragement during challenges. Connie will be missed by literally hundreds of friends and acquaintances; especially by her colleagues at ZaZu, a unique gift shop in Ashburn, Virginia where she worked as a sales associate these past several years.
A celebration of Connie’s life will be held on December 28, 2019 from Noon – 3:00 pm at the Potomac Club, 43459 Riverpoint Drive in Lansdowne, VA.
