Laurie Anne Connelly

November 07, 1945 - March 03, 2020
Newport Beach CA


Laurie Connelly was born November 7, 1945 in Pittsburgh, PA to Catherine and George Miller. She attended Sacred Heart High School and the University of Dayton before going on to teach in her hometown of Pittsburgh. Laurie reconnected with, and subsequently married, her childhood sweetheart, Jed Connelly. They were married for a wonderful 51 years and delighted in raising three children: Kate (Connelly) Schlie, David Connelly, and Emily (Connelly) Jordan.

Laurie was very involved in the community, volunteering for such organizations as Families Forward, Meals on Wheels, and the Assistance League Thrift Shop. She was a longtime parishioner at Saint Elizabeth Ann Seton, enjoyed playing Mah Jongg and canasta with friends, and spending time with her six grandchildren (and planning for one on the way). Laurie loved to travel, and was fortunate enough to do it extensively. Quick witted, deeply thoughtful, and smart as a whip, Laurie will be missed but always remembered by those she whose lives she touched. Mass will be held Friday, March 6, 2020, at 8:30am at Saint Elizabeth Ann Seton in Irvine. In lieu of flowers, the family welcomes donations in Laurie’s name to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
