WOOSTER – Jean S. McConnell, 74, of Wooster passed away on Friday, June 15, 2018 at her home after a long battle with Alzheimer’s.
Jean was born March 26, 1944 in Bluffton, Ohio, the daughter of the late Paul and Evelyn Gratz Stauffer. She married William S. McConnell on September 11, 1966. He survives.
Jean graduated from Bluffton High School before attending Bluffton University, graduating in 1966. She then obtained her Masters of Library Science from Case Western. Jean retired in 2000 from the Wayne County Public Library after 30 years.
Jean was a member of AAUW and an ardent supporter of the Wayne County Humane Society. She was a lifetime member of the First Mennonite Church of Bluffton.
