WAKEFIELD — Constance Marie (Connie) Penta, 86, of Wakefield died Monday evening, September 10, 2018 surrounded by her loving family at the High Point Hospice House in Haverhill.

Connie was born January 28, 1932 and was the daughter of the late Thomas and Catherine (Regan) Pelletier.

She worked for several years at the former Transitron in Wakefield, and then for many years at the food counter at the Woolworth in Stoneham, which was her favorite job because she loved people. Connie had a big heart and a great sense of humor. She loved going to Bingo, Las Vegas, and Mohegan Sun. Connie loved the horses, watching bowling, ice skating, and listening to Rod Stewart.
