Connie O'Leary

March 17, 1943 — September 18, 2023


Mary Constance “Connie” O’Leary (née Burch) of Beaver Dam, Wisconsin passed away peacefully and surrounded by family on September 18, 2023. Survived by son Patrick (Lisa) O’Leary; daughter Kelli (Bret) Haack; daughter Erin O’Leary (partner Greg Frahn); daughter Bridget (Mark) Wegener; former spouse James O'Leary; brothers Michael (Jeannine) Burch, Timothy (Barbara) Burch, Jeffrey Burch; sister Kathleen (Terry) Maloney; 6 beloved grandchildren Drew (Samantha) Haack, Cassie Haack, Aidan and Rylie O’Leary, Audrey, and Clara Wegener; and many extended family and others dear to her. Preceded by parents Byron and Mary (O’Malley) Burch; and partner Arnold “Arnie” Marble.


Born in Madison, Wisconsin on St. Patrick’s Day (March 17, 1943), Connie was always proud of her Irish heritage. She graduated from Villa Duchesne High School in Frontenac, Missouri and later attended the University of Wisconsin- Platteville. Connie touched many lives with her relentlessly positive spirit, her kind heart, and her friendly demeanor. She always put her family first, and would do anything to help others. She was a good friend, a kind neighbor, and a loyal and avid fan of the Badgers, Packers, Brewers and Bucks. She never missed a family event, usually arriving early and with a big smile.


Enduring gratitude to the staff at Randolph Health Services who provided care to Connie in her final days. There will be a celebration of life at Cress Funeral Services at 3610 Speedway Rd. in Madison, Wisconsin 53705 on Friday October 6 from 1 to 4 pm. Please feel free to wear your favorite sports attire.
