Sad News for Our Community

Dear Members and Friends of UUFA,

As most of you know, Kelli McConnell, UUFA’s Director of Religious Exploration, has been battling stage four breast cancer. I’m sad to tell you that Kelli passed away this morning, on Sunday November 7. Her transition was peaceful, and she was surrounded by her dear family and loved ones.

In her years at UUFA, Kelli brought fresh energy to the Fellowship, mentoring and teaching children and youth, and inspiring adults with her bright presence.

Kelli’s family is making plans for a service to celebrate her life, and I’ll let you know the details as soon as they’re available. You can send cards of condolence to the family and to Kelli’s partner Jason Huffer, c/o Kenna McConnell, 605 Forest Heights Dr., Athens 30606.

Memorial contributions may be made to the Kelli McConnell RE Scholarship Fund at UUFA so that her legacy of growing strong kids and youth will continue.

Blessings and love,
Rev. Lisa Romantum Schwartz
