Obituary

Jean Connolly
Born: July 18, 1925
Passed: April 30, 2021

Jean Connolly passed away peacefully on Friday, April 30 at the age of 95. In one of her final conversations, Jeannie said, “I’ve had a good life.” Indeed, she did.

Born in a bungalow in the Rockaways, Jeannie was the last surviving of the five Connolly sisters. She conveyed an optimism and joy that affected everyone she met. Motivated by her desire to serve God and others, as a young woman Jeannie joined the Nursing Sisters of the Sick Poor, earning her nursing degree and a master’s from St. John’s University. Though she left the convent after more than 25 years, she continued her service, working for decades with the most downtrodden in New York City, caring for homeless drug and alcohol addicts.

After retirement from full-time work, Jeannie never rested. She was active in her parish and community, tutoring local students and helping immigrant families. She was an enthusiastic member of a Catholic singles group that led her on trips and adventures across the U.S. and overseas. And she developed a new interest in genealogy, researching her family history and reaching out to far-flung and long lost family members. At family gatherings, Jeannie was the first on the dance floor and always had another story to tell. She will be missed, though the seeds she planted will continue to blossom for years to come.

Jeannie leaves behind many nieces and nephews in the Cronin, English, Gallagher and Langowsky families. We were fortunate to know Jeannie and inspired by the life she led.

In lieu of flowers, you can memorialize Jeannie with a donation to the Sisters of St. Joseph’s (Mission Advancement Office, 1725 Brentwood Road, Building 4, Brentwood, NY 11717).
