Mrs. O'Connell was the "Cookie Lady" at St. Theresa's School. My daughter attended St. Theresa's School with her grandson, Brandt. She was a wonderful lady and will be truly missed. I'm sorry that I missed the service -- I only found out about her passing this weekend. My heart felt prayers are for the entire family, especially Elizabeth, Jordan and Brandt.
Mrs. Oc'Connell was my 1st grade teacher at St Louis [the school's first class!]. Her spirit and her graciousness have impacted my life ever since that time. Additionally she was an "extra" parent for me due to her being part of the long standing bridge group. Her passing is a boon to Heaven and leaves a gaping hole here on earth.
With love, respect and gratitude for all that Mrs. O'Connell brought to me and many others
Margaret, The service was lovely yesterday for your Mom. I especially appreciated the recipe in with the prayer card, very touching! She was such a wonderful baker, and from the many family and friends in the church; she will clearly be missed. I have always appreciated your family, the friendship with both you & Elizabeth...hard to believe it now spans 30years! Love to all during this very difficult time. xo
Warren & Bernie Broz are sorry they could not attend her services but wish to let Chris' family know that she will be remembered fondly. From the early St. Louis Church & School days to the present she was a wonderful friend!
Dear Pat & Jan,
I am so sorry for your loss.
