Obituary for Constance "Connie" Canute

Constance “Connie” Marie (Saraino) Canute 88 died July 27, 2023, at her home after a brave battle with Leukemia.

Born in Detroit, Michigan, on March 9th, 1935, to Marion and Gaetano Saraino. She was the oldest of seven siblings and very proud of her Italian heritage. She was predeceased by her beloved husband, Leonard in 1996, her son Christopher in 2018, and siblings, Carmela Florence, Joseph, and Ben.

Surviving are her dear ones, daughter Cheryl Michon (Anthony) of MA, Jeanine Canute of Gettysburg, PA, and grandchildren, Sean (Alex) of MA, Benjamin Canute, triplets, Katy (Cody), Amber (Dan) Laura, a brother Michael Saraino and a sister, Mary Saraino Hult, all deeply cherished.

She served in the Women’s Army Corps (WAC) during the Korean Conflict and considered this one of the highlights of her life.

She is a proud member of the American Legion. Connie was an active member of the St. Francis Xavier Parish, having served on the board of the Parish Council of Catholic Women (PCCW), St. Vincent de Paul ministry, Prison ministry, and as Extraordinary minister of the Holy Eucharist to the Gettysburg Hospital, and volunteered in the Parish office.

She was a unit clerk at the Gettysburg Hospital and then worked for the Adams County Winery for over 12 years as a tasting room attendant, enjoying interaction with customers. A daily Mass attendant-the best way to start her day- followed by meeting with dearest friends, Joyce and Rita at the coffee house was special.

So many good friends, a loving, caring Parish family, and pride in her children and grandchildren were all joys and blessings in her life.

A Memorial Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated Saturday, August 19, 2023 at St. Francis Xavier Catholic Church, Gettysburg, PA at 1:00 PM.  Interment will follow in St. Francis Cemetery. If you choose, donations may be made to St. Francis Xavier Parish or School, 455 Table Rock Rd, Gettysburg, PA 17325. Online obituary and condolences available at
