Constance “Connie” (Holt) Pullen, a 48 year resident of Rockwall, TX, passed away May 10, 2019, at the age of 68. She was born October 15, 1950, in Shreveport, LA, to John and Georgeine (McCoulskey) Holt. She spent her youth in Vivian, La, where she was active in her local church, sang in her high school choir and loved spending time amongst the tall pine trees of her family’s home place just outside of town. After attending Louisiana Tech, she moved to Rockwall to live with her maternal grandmother, while working at the Federal Reserve in Dallas. It was during this time in Rockwall in which she met the love of her life, Jackie Pullen, and they married September 11, 1971.

Connie loved being the wife of a farmer, and always worked hard alongside Jackie. She loved living on the Pullen family farm and took such pride in helping to restore the old farmhouse and keep the family history alive. For 22 years, Connie worked as a secretary on many campuses for Rockwall ISD. She retired in 2008 to spend more time with grandchildren. She loved and cherished all of the fun memories and special friendships she made during her years with RISD. Connie was a member of First Baptist Church of Rockwall, the Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR), and the Rockwall County Historical Foundation. She enjoyed gardening, loved to cook, and was famous for her Sunday dinners and family celebrations at the farm. She was incredibly caring, and always loved having the grandchildren with her.

Through her 2 ½ year battle with breast cancer, she showed her family and all those around her how to walk in faith and completely rely on the Lord’s strength.

Connie is survived by her loving husband: Jackie Pullen; daughters: Lucinda Rogers and husband Toby, and Rachel Pullen; son: Kyle Pullen and wife Holly; mother: Georgeine Robbins; grandchildren: Jacob Rogers, Ty Rogers, Krece Nowak, Kassidy Nowak, Joshua McBee, Ruby Pullen, Truett Pullen, and Jacklyn Pullen; and brothers: John Holt and Richard Holt. She was preceded in death by her father: John Holt and brother: Bobby Holt.
