Belmont---Constance Lee Mirski, 60, of Belmont, died at the Lakes Region General Hospital, Laconia on Tuesday, November 18, 2008.

Born in Bowling Green, Kentucky on January 7, 1948 to Mary M. and Charles A. Deakin, Connie was an Army daughter and lived throughout the United States, graduating in Wahiawa, Hawaii from Leilehua High School in 1966. From there she traveled to Miami, Florida where she graduated from Barry College in 1971. In 1972 she married the love of her life, Mark Mirski, and together they moved to Winnisquam, New Hampshire where they began the innovative silk-screening business Freedom of Expression. They eventually moved to Belmont, New Hampshire, into the family homestead. Connie worked as a Special Education/ESL Teacher in the Gilford School District where she enriched the lives of many children. She loved her students. Her favorite outdoor activities included kayaking, snowshoeing and gardening.

Connie was an amazing wife, mother, daughter, sister, teacher and friend. Her generosity and hard work was always appreciated and the love she shared with others was an example for all to live by. She will be missed by many but will live on in the hearts of all those she leaves behind.
