Constance L. (Ebert) Roule, 81 of LaPorte, Indiana passed away at her home on May 17, 2021.
Connie was born on June 14, 1939, in LaPorte, Indiana to the late Arthur L. and Mildred L. (Phillips) Roule Sr.
She graduated from LaPorte High School in 1958 and attended Saint Mary’s College and Indiana State University. On July 30, 1961, she married David J. Ebert Sr. of LaPorte. They divorced in 1982. Connie is survived by her brothers, Arthur L. (Trudy) Roule, Jr. of LaPorte, and Robert L. Roule (the late Susan Roule) of Long Beach, IN; children David (Julie) Ebert, Stephen (Janyl) Ebert, Thomas (Cynthia) Ebert, Amy (Steven) Bernth, Elizabeth (Matthew) Hagenow; grandchildren, Jessica Ebert, Drew (Jessica) Ebert, Carissa Ebert, Emily Jorgenson, Allyce Ebert, Carter Bernth, Brady Bernth, Kylee Bernth, Parker Hagenow, and Jade Hagenow; and great-grandchildren Liam, Paisley, and Owen.
She served her community through public office as Clerk-Treasurer of the City of LaPorte for several terms. She was also an active member of St. Joseph Catholic Church, the St. Vincent de Paul Society, and was a lifelong active member in LaPorte Tri Kappa.
Connie enjoyed trips and dinners with her close friends, loved spending time with her kids and grandkids, and was an avid LaPorte Slicer and Notre Dame fan. While her children were growing up, the family home on Lawrence St. was known by all the neighborhood kids as the place to hang out. Countless LaPorte area youth knew “Ebert’s” as the place to go for a backyard basketball game, and many future Slicers cut their teeth on the court in Connie’s back yard. Her heart and home were always open to everyone.
A private Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at St. Joseph Catholic Church with interment at Pine Lake Cemetery. A Celebration of Life will take place Monday June 14, with details to follow.
Arrangements have been entrusted to Frank L. Keszei Funeral Home, Essling Chapel, 1117 Indiana Avenue, LaPorte Indiana.
Memorial Contributions may be made to St. Vincent de Paul Society, the Youth Service Bureau of LaPorte County, Riley Children’s Hospital, or St. Joseph’s Catholic Church of LaPorte.
