Ms.Connolly was one of my favorite teachers in school. I had her as a teacher at McKinley Jr High and I loved her sassy spirit. Sending my condolences💗

Ann, was one of the funniest, sharp witted and loving person you could know. She loved her family and her grand and great grand children dearly. She will be so missed , but also so remembered.

Please accept my sincere condolences. Although it's difficult to see beyond the sorrow, may looking back on memories help comfort you tomorrow. Look forward to the wonderful promise when we will meet again that promise is found at John 5:28, 29.

I just wanted to offer my condolences to you and your family. I had your mom for a teacher at McKinley many many years ago. She was always so sweet.
