Mary E. Connolly

February 29, 1924 ~ November 3, 2017 (age 93)

The Piano Brothers

Mary Elizabeth “Betty” Connolly died peacefully November 3, 2017 at age 93 with her family at her side.  She was preceded in death by her husband of 53 years, Thomas J. Connolly. As an Air Force JAG, Tom was assigned to places all over the world. Betty and their four children had adventures in Texas, Hawaii, Illinois, Pakistan, Virginia, Colorado, and the Philippines.  Upon Tom’s retirement, Betty and he moved to Venice, FL.  In 2004, after Tom’s death, Betty moved to Fleet Landing in Atlantic Beach. She enjoyed many happy years there with new friends experiencing a multitude of social activities. The family is so grateful for the care she received during her time at Leeward Manor.

Betty is survived by her children: Pat Wells (Randy) of Amelia Island, Barbara Cole (Lee) of Nobel, OK, Janet Mullen (Steve) of Sturbridge, MA, and Bob Connolly (Terri) of Louisville, KY. She leaves 12 grandchildren: Jason Wells (Jenny), Tim Wells (Natalie), Marshall Cole, Dylan Cole (Rachel), Warren Cole (Cathy), Chris Mullen (Laura), Cara Mullen Johnsen (Aleck), Katrina Connolly Klenk (Matt), Kristen Stone (Tim), Kelley Barnaby (Nick), Megan Davies (Dryw), and Michael Connolly. She has 11 great-grandchildren: Wendy Wells, Olivia Cole, Emma Cole, Lucy Cole, Adelein Johnsen, Owen Klenk, Annika Klenk, Landon Stone, Ethan Stone, William Barnaby, and Charlotte Barnaby and two more due next month.
