In Loving Memory

Conner, Lu Ann (Sitton)

October 18, 1956 - January 20, 2024

LuAnn Conner passed away on January 20, 2024 at the age of 67. She was survived by her son Austin, daugher-in-law Polly, her 3 grandchildren Adelyn, Tyler, and Clayton, and her dear friend and caretaker Michelle Hawk.
She was born and raised in Illmo, MO. After moving to Columbia, MO for high school she graduated from the University of Missouri with a bachelor’s degree in nursing. She worked as a nurse in the NICU at Cardinal Glennon for close to 3 decades.
Even though her last few years were defined by struggles with Multiple Sclerosis and Diabetes, they never compromised or overshadowed the best of who she was. She was loyal. She was kind. Her laughter and smiles were infectious. Her skills as a compassionate and caring nurse were matched only by her love for her son, her mom Martha, her extended family, and countless others. If anyone asked her how she was doing, the next two words without fail were “I’m fine.” Because she is with Jesus, we can now say with confidence that she is indeed “fine.”  She leaves behind a legacy of love and warmth that will be fondly remembered by many. In memory of LuAnn, let us celebrate a life well-lived, marked by laughter, love, and unwavering kindness.

Memorial visitation at Kutis Affton Chapel 10151 Gravois Rd. 63123 on Friday, January 26 from 2:00 pm. until Memorial Service time 3:30 pm. Interment will be held in private.

  1. Austin and family,

  2. My heart is broken💔 but at least I know where she is and I will see her again one day We really grew up together as kids She was with us a lot in summer as her Mom was a working widow Such wonderful memories of her I will cherish Prayers for you and your family Austin

  3. My very best of best friends in the formative years with Illmo and Scott City as our playground. Lu Ann and her mother, Martha, literally shaped my outlook on life during my challenging teenage years. In many ways they saved me with their acceptance and generous love. A light has gone out on earth but is shining brightly in heaven.
