Connie Copulos Early February 7th, 2016, our beloved Wife, Mom and Gram passed away in her home of 43 years in rural Lodi. She was surrounded and held by her family as she slipped from us at the age of 77. Connie was born in Utah in 1938 to Afton and Willard Dillon, followed by two sisters, Vickey and Loma. She grew up mostly in Long Beach, California where she met her husband of 57 years, C.M. “Mike” Copulos. They had three children, Tina, Craig and Chad before moving to Lodi in 1973. It is here in Lodi that Connie created a home filled with love and happiness for her husband, children and grandchildren.
