I can't remember exactly when Connie left Dallas but I think it was either in season 3 or 4. One minute she was Bobby's loyal secretary who secretly had the hots for him and the next minute she disappeared. Then out of the blue, Phyllis shows up as a temporary replacement for Connie who we are told was off sick. Whatever the illness was it lasted for 10 years as Connie never returned once Phyllis got her comfortable behind her desk. Did Phyllis bump her off so she could get her job? (Sorry, I omitted the question mark in the title of this thread and I can't change it now).
