Connie Sue Wyatt was born July 7, 1960 in Tulsa, Okla. to parents, James “Jim” Wyatt and Janice Lorea Streets Wyatt. She graduated from Okmulgee High School in 1978 and went on to attend college. Connie started H&H Garden Center in Clyde before moving to Breckenridge 25 years ago and opening the Breckenridge location. On March 9, 2003, Connie married Benny Wayne Kilburn in Breckenridge. The two operated the garden center together for almost 20 years. She was an active member of The Lord’s Old Time Gospel Church and was a devoted Christian. Connie loved to share her faith and encourage people in the Lord. She felt part of the mission of the garden center was to help people and she never missed an opportunity to do so. She loved living at the lake, gardening and was an avid reader in her spare time. Connie enjoyed traveling, whether it be to the mountains or to the beach. Most of all, she loved spending time with her family and watching her grand babies grow. The past six years with them have been a highlight of her life. She was preceded in death by her parents, Jim Wyatt and Janice Stout.

Connie is survived by her husband, Benny Kilburn of Breckenridge; two children, Cassidy Harrison and husband Chad, Rusty Kilburn and wife Denae, all of Breckenridge; two siblings, Jackie Stahl of Bay City, Larry Wyatt and wife Charlotte of Moore, Oklahoma; six grandchildren, Gavin Harrison, Hailey Vinson, Mason Kilburn, Carter Harrison, Lucas Harrison, Kellen Stoker; and her nieces and nephews, Jason Wyatt and wife Shea, Eric Kilburn and wife Rebecca, Heather Stahl, Hana Hardzog and husband Kaden, Tori Bailey, Tiffany LeMond and husband Everett.
