Mary Jo Connealy was born April 21, 1921 in Montrose, South Dakota, to Joseph and Pauline Malloy.

Mary Jo entered Eternal Life on May 31,2019.

Mary Jo was a devoted wife, mother and grandmother. She dedicated her life to her husband and family, her church and reaching out neighbors. She taught at Elm Creek School in rural Decatur and continued to be a life-long teacher as she shared her wisdom with her family and others. There would be no way to count the number of lunches she provided for the men working in the field. Fresh hamburgers were a favorite! She was always ready to offer hospitality and a warm welcome. Her faith sustained her throughout her life and her courage facing the challenges taught the value of patience and acceptance. Her ready smile brightened anyone’s day who had the privilege of knowing her.
