There are many people who will only associate Connie Kreski with her unflattering award of Playmate of the Year 1969 and in some month in the previous year but we know that there are a lot more about her than meets the play eyes. As you would soon see.
Here is everything we know about her.

Connie Kreski was born Constance Joanne Kornacki in September 1946. She was born in Wyandotte, Michigan, United States of America.
There is little information about her family and parents.
She was 5 feet 5 inches (1.65 meters) tall.
Her TV movie credits
Kreski briefly worked as a psychiatric nurse at a hospital in Ann Arbor, Michigan. On the side, she did cheerleading in the University of Michigan football games. She may have retired as a nurse but the lines of her fate led to a different direction.
One day, at a University of Michigan football game, a Playboy scout took one long look at her and decided she would be perfect for the magazine. Kreski went on to make a couple of appearances on the cover of PlayBoy.

How did she die?
In August 1969, the sensational actress and model, Sharon Tate was murdered by the Mason Family cult in her home. She was eight and a half months pregnant. She was with four other persons, all of whom we murdered. There was a fifth friend who was supposed to be in that gathering – Connie Kreski.
Somehow, Kreski failed to show up and that was saved.
