Conner, Harriet Theresa “Terri”
died peacefully on Saturday, March 31, 2018, at her home in Oakville, MO, surrounded by family. She was born on November 27, 1933, in St. Louis, MO, to Harry and Geraldine Ellebracht. She is survived by her brothers Art (Pat) and Jerry (Lee) Ellebracht of St. Louis, MO, her sister Phyllis (and the late Ollie) Anderson of Monterey, CA, her children Debbie Moore of Bethesda, MD, Melody (Tom) Carrato of Salinas, CA, Christina (Ralph) Marty and Michael (Donna) Conner of St. Louis, MO; and preceded in death by her brother John (survived by Daisy) of Seattle, WA, and her son, Stephen Conner of St. Louis, MO. She is the proud grandmother of Ryan, Andrew, Eric, Nathan, Jessie (Bruce), Cora (Chris), Denise (Joe), Justine, Austin and Reanna, great grandmother to Aaron, Violet and Joey; aunt to many nephews and nieces and cousin.
Her life revolved around her family and the home where she raised her children. The family created many wonderful memories at the “Conner” house, celebrating holidays, birthdays, and other special moments in her family’s lives. She was devoted to those she loved, generous and kind to others, and loved music, books, the outdoors, bicycling, golfing and swimming. The passing of our much loved mother, grandmother, great grandmother, sister, aunt and friend leaves a void in our lives, but our memories of her will sustain us, and our knowledge that she is in the Lord’s embrace will comfort us.
In lieu of flowers, the family suggests donations be sent in her name to Alzheimer’s Association, 9370 Olive Blvd., St. Louis, MO.
