Our beloved Mother, Grandmother and Great Grandmother passed peacefully in her sleep, January 6th, 2021 in the early hours of morning, she was 88 years old. Born in 1932 in Norway, Michigan. She was a widow, who was married to Robert D. McConnell (3/25/1928 - 7/9/2000) for 50 years. Loma was a mother to 6 daughters, her living daughters are Colleen Holroyd, Michelle Venegas and her husband Rudy, Linda White and her husband Mike, and her 3 daughters who are no longer with us Mary Rosales, Karen McConnell, and Debbie McConnell.

Along with her 3 surviving daughters, she has a myriad of grandchildren and great grandchildren. Kenneth Barger and his wife Tracy, Nicole McConnell, Jon Price and his wife Jennifer, Robert Price, Megan Price, Juan Carrillo and his husband Gary, Mathew White and his love Dre , Tina Fernandez and her husband Luis, Rosie Mencia and her husband Jay, Loma is also survived by her Brother Bill Wall and his wife Judy and Sister Betty Carr as well as her great grandchildren Juan G. Fernandez, Alejandro g. Fernandez, Amalinda Marie Flores. Roger Mencia, Seth Mencia, Owen and Lexi Mencia. Loma Worked for 22 years at Host International restaurant group before retiring from Host to move from California to Florida where she continued working for another 15 years at Target. She was a fanatic about basketball, knowing stats and schedules, for her favorite team, The Orlando Magic and she was not a fan of Lebron James, an avid reader she loved Danielle Steele novels and enjoyed country music, especially Travis Tritt.

Loma was a spitfire, incredibly determined, always in charge and usually over prepared, as we could tell by all the little notes, she left us that pertained to her passing such as clothes, no shoes and absolutely no bra! Her spirit was like no other, she could command a room full of the noisiest family with just the boom of her voice, and if she asked you or told you …. you best do it now, because she did not mean later. Open minded and firmly grounded in her spirituality, Loma never judged or slighted, what she taught us all and what she gave us we will carry with us always close to our hearts as we continue this journey without her. Hopefully, we will continue to make her proud by carrying ourselves how she would have expected and every now and then smile when we use her favorite word … “Dammitt”. As I write this we can definitely say “Dammitt Loma, we love you, and we will be forever grateful for the time we had with you, and you will be with us always.”

We may have lost our Matriarch, but we will never give up our memories of her and her gorgeous smile.

I remember being I believe 11 or 12 and grandma getting me into watching night time soaps with her. Like Dallas that was our show and I loved calling her and we would talk about it. Mom would laugh at us, and grandma introduced me to the enquirer and star and use to have me ride my bike to get it for her every week. I always told her she made me gay. Love and peace old woman in heave. Don’t drive God crazy.

My grandmother meant the world to me. The life lessons she passed on has helped me become the person I've become.

She was one special lady and the loss of her is felt deeply by many. The love of a grandma is unique. God must have given grandmothers to us to liven up our lives, to make our lives more complete, to make us well rounded and better human beings. She played a big part in my childhood and I can remember so many times sitting with her in the kitchen and tasting her grill cheese sandwiches made with special love. She taught me a lot about love and the meaning of family.. She has never been just ‘my grandmother’, but my guardian, my friend and my inspiration.

Still, we can’t believe my lovely Grandma was taken away from us . We will miss our Grandmother, but her spirit and strength, lives on in each of us and in the lives that she touched. She lives on in me, my children and in all those who have been touched by the love, strength, conviction, wisdom, and beauty of her soul.

Love you grandma – You truly were a special, special woman! You may have passed on, but your memories would always live on within us. Thank you for your sacrifices, your care and concern, your love and everything that you have done for me. Thank you for approving of me and thank you for letting me know how proud my mom was of me. I owe the world to you. I know you will never leave my side in life or after. Thank you for loving me.” I will be forever grateful and thankful that you are my ‘grandmother’.

Rest in Peace Grandmother…we will never forget you and we will always love you forever…
