CONNIE FLANAGAN August 9, 1959 - March 9, 2019 It is with extremely heavy hearts we announce the sudden passing of Connie Flanagan, beloved wife, mother and friend. After a long and hard-fought battle with cancer Connie passed away on the evening of Saturday, March 9 at St. Boniface Hospital. She is survived by her daughter Shantel (D'Arcy), her husband Donald, his daughters, Melissa, Tara, and granddaughters, Brooke and Lily. Connie was born in Winnipeg where she lived her whole life. She followed in her late parents, Maurice and Noni's, footsteps, choosing to pursue a career teaching kindergarten and nursery for 35 years. Connie was an exceptional teacher beloved by her students and known for always bringing innovation and passion into her classroom. Outside of the classroom Connie was known for her love of travel, cooking, Christmas and her creativity. With her husband Donald they travelled the world making memories together. A funeral service will be held at First Lutheran Church at 580 Victor Street on Tuesday, March 19.

Condolences & Memories (3 entries)

  • I was so sorry to hear about Connie's death. What a shock, although I had known that she was battling cancer. I had gotten away from the circle at Champlain after retiring and lost touch with the folks there. My deepest and sincere condolences to Don and the rest of the family. You were so good to her, Don and she loved you for it - may she rest in peace! - Posted by: Ellen Cook (Colleague) on: Jun 05, 2019

Connie’s sense of humour, good nature and kindness inspired many. She was a wonderful person. With respect and love. Maxine - Posted by: Maxine Geller (Colleague) on: Mar 23, 2019

  • Connie was an amazing teacher. Her students were always busy doing great activities that she thought up and then went to great lengths getting all the materials she needed to make them! Being on any committees in school or chatting and laughing through lunch hours were always so much fun with Connie joining in! She had a great sense of humour, a contagious laugh and a wonderful sense of fun! - Posted by: Cathy Willows (Friend) on: Mar 16, 2019
