Constance Pohs, 93, of Scottsdale, Arizona, died on July 20, 2021. Connie, as she known to her friends and family, loved music and dance. She was a jazz aficionado, and she often told friends that she (and they) should “try to stay jazzy.” Connie was also a fan of fashion, and she always dressed impeccably, right until the end of her life. Connie was born in the Bronx, New York, and grew up in Mount Vernon, New York. Connie was predeceased by her husband, Arnold, who she met when both were on their way from New York to Ann Arbor to attend the University of Michigan. Arnold was the great love of Connie’s life, and they always worked together as a team, from when they ran a tennis camp in New York to when they supported various charities together, including the Children’s Diabetes Foundation and Mayo Clinic. After Ann Arbor, Arnold and Connie lived in Westchester County, New York and Littleton, Colorado before retiring to Scottsdale in 2001. Connie is remembered by her friends and family for her compassion and for her generous spirit.
Connie is survived by her children: daughter, Wendi Pohs, Wendi’s husband, Mike Kilgore, son Glenn Pohs, wife Jill Degen Pohs, her grandchildren: Meghan Zocchi, Erin Chapman, Lara, Jamie, and Jacob Pohs, her six great grandchildren, and her beloved brother Marvin Friedman and his wife Judy, and their children Lisa, William (deceased) and Joanne.
