Barbara A. Conners, 71, of Northfield, NJ departed this world on Sunday July 28, 2019 surrounded by her loving family. Born in Philadelphia, PA she was the daughter of the late Daniel and Angela (Sledz) Hesske and the loving wife of the late William Conners.

Just a few of the worthy causes she supported were local food shelters and animal rescues such as Atlantic City Rescue Mission and Jersey State Rescue along with St Jude's Children Hospital. Among her various interests were politics and world events, feeding her birds, flowers and gambling. She had a real appreciation for good food, great conversation and a well made Cosmo. Barbara was passionate about music, the theater and art. She was a lifelong Eagles fan.

Barbara will be missed and fondly remembered by her daughter; Lisa Schultz, sister; Donna Schultz and her nieces and nephews along with her friends and feline fur baby Beauty. In addition to her parents and husband she was predeceased by sons; Eric and Matthew Schultz and brother; Daniel Hesske.

Services will be private at the convenience of the family. A celebration of her life will be held privately at a later date and close family and friends will be notified as to the details.
