Connie M. Adamek Autsolief

Connie M. Adamek Autsolief

December 31, 1954 – March 27, 2020

Connie Marie Autsolief passed away surrounded by her family on March 27, 2020 in Clear Lake, Texas at the age of 65.

Connie was born on December 31, 1954 at the Adamek family farm in Schulenburg, Texas to her loving parents Frank and Mary Adamek. A graduate of Jesse H. Jones High School, Connie began her career in the drafting department of Houston Lighting and Power Company in Houston, where she met her future husband. After 8 years of courtship, Connie married Edward Douglas Autsolief, Jr on August 7, 1982 at Mount Carmel Catholic Church in Houston, Texas. Connie later worked for Southwestern Bell before taking on the job of full time Mother to her children beginning in 1984. 

A two time cancer survivor, Connie knew the fragility of life and inspired those around her by making the most of each day. Deeply devoted to the Catholic faith, Connie and Doug were members of St. Paul's Catholic Church in Nassau Bay, TX. She made some of her closest friends through the many causes she passionately volunteered to serve: the Gabriel Project, Houston Coalition for Life, supporting current cancer patients, reading to school children and her love for holding babies. She was always looking for a way to help others.

Connie's positive disposition and sense of fun were contagious. She was an avid bowler and loved to travel to see new places. She never passed up an opportunity on the dance floor, to work on a puzzle, or to have dessert. Animals were drawn to her, as she always had a special way of talking to them. She adored the late family dog, Trey, and her "grand dogs" and "grand rabbit".

Connie loved her family deeply and spent her happiest moments with them. She was preceded in death by her Father Frank, her Mother Mary, her parent's siblings Emil Janacek, Method Janacek, Edward Janacek, Joe Janacek, Emilie Jurica, Lucie Jurica and Martha Demel Bard; and her brother-in-law Tommy Reiler. 

She is survived by her husband of 37 years, son Kevin and his wife Amelia, daughter Erin, siblings Eugene Adamek (Patricia), Carolyn Reiler, Frank Adamek (Shelley), Arnold Adamek (Sally), Elroy Adamek (Lana), Deborah Mitchell, Pamela Crossan (Jeffery) and Mary Yates (David); Uncle George Janacek and Aunt Marcella Srubar.

To comply with current gathering restrictions and to protect everyone's health, a private viewing will be limited to immediate family. A celebration of Connie's life will be scheduled for a later date when gathering restrictions are lifted so that all family and friends are able to attend.

    Those of us at the Houston Coalition for Life are very saddened at Connie's passing and will remember her involvement in our work. She was a Stand & Pray volunteer outside the Planned Parenthood abortion facility in Houston and on one occasion brought numerous toys to our office so that the children of the women we serve had a place to play while they were there. Connie and your entire family are in our thoughts and prayers.
