Ronell Conner Brindell
March 28, 1951 – August 6, 2016


Ronell Conner Brindell, born March 28, 1951, passed away peacefully in her sleep on August 6, 2016 in her haven, Park City, Utah. She is survived by her two daughters, Jennifer Sabiston Brindell of Miami Beach, Florida, and Katherine Brindell Diefes, together with her husband Hunter James, of Raleigh, North Carolina. She was a mother first and foremost, and her beautiful soul and spirit will live on through the lives of her two daughters. As Katie and Jenny often said, she was always their number one cheerleader. Additionally, she leaves behind her mother, Joan Kennedy Conner of Memphis, Tennessee; and her two sisters, Joyce Pacente, also of Memphis, and Marjorie Conner, of Alexandria, Virginia. She also leaves behind her two nephews, Gus and Nick Pacente and her niece, Emma Joan Conner. Last, but certainly not least, she leaves behind her "Chicago street dog," Tory B. and her grand-dogs, Layla, Cooper, and Ellie. She was preceded in death by her father, William Harry Conner and her sister, Catherine Conner.

Ronell graduated from The Sacred Heart School in Memphis and received her Bachelors and Masters degrees from Memphis State University. She was active in the Junior League of Memphis, as well as the Memphis Garden Club. She was also a member of The Church of The Holy Communion. She volunteered for various charities in both Memphis and Park City. Her long-time love of nature and all things that grow shown through in the love and care that she put forth in her gardens in Memphis and Park City.
She loved friends as though they were family, never met a stranger, and her life and legacy will live on through the people whose lives she touched throughout her own. She exuded grace, loved fiercely, and brought the best out in everyone she knew. Ronell was a beacon of light and will be deeply missed by all.

A private graveside service was scheduled to be held in Park City on August 11, and a celebration of Ronell's life will follow in Memphis on August 19 at the Dixon Gallery and Gardens. In lieu of flowers the family asks that donations in Ronell's memory be made to Paws Chicago (PawsChicago.org) or the Church Health Center (ChurchHealthCenter.org) in Memphis.

Arrangements are in the Care of Olpin-Hoopes Funeral Home, Heber City, Utah. Memories and condolences may be sent to the family at www.olpinhoopes.com.
