Lila Jean Elizabeth (Donat) Connant, was born on Feb. 7, 1938, and left this world on Jan. 29, 2018, after a brave battle with ALS. Lila was a warm, funny, compassionate woman who will be missed by all who knew her.

She is survived by her husband of 60 years, Don Connant; her children, Don Connant, Jr, Christine Logan and David Connant, their spouses and children.

Lila’s dearest desire was to be around family. Her parting advice was to forgive one another, be kind and laugh often. She loved to laugh.

Lila will be laid to rest at 3 p.m. Friday, Feb. 9. A brief service for friends and family will be held at Valley of the Sun Cemetery, 10940 East Chandler Heights Road in Chandler, AZ 85248. Those who wish to send flowers may send them directly to the cemetery.
