Beth Connelly, 95, passed away peacefully on July 12, 2020, in her home in Lee’s Summit, Missouri.
Beth was born in Buffalo, Missouri in 1925 to Nellie and Joe Stafford. She was the youngest of eight siblings. After graduating high school, she moved to Denver to work as a teletype operator for Western Union. She later transferred to Kansas City, married Jack Connelly, and raised four children.
Beth loved watching the Chiefs and Royals, playing cards, crocheting, square dancing, and bingo. But most of all she loved her family. She’ll be sorely missed by those of us who spent so many Sunday mornings around her breakfast table. We love you, Granny.
She was preceded in death by her husband Jack and son Keith Connelly. She is survived by sons Chuck and Mark Connelly; daughter Jody Howery and husband John; grandchildren Kelly Heaven, and Lane, Lucas, and Lauren Connelly; and great grandchildren Ryder and Sage Heaven and Hera Cartner.
In lieu of flowers, please send donations to Kansas City Hospice & Palliative Care.
