December 31, 1995 - November 24, 2021
Courtney Paige Connolly, 25, heartbreakingly left this world for her eternal resting place on Wednesday, November 24, 2021. Born December 31, 1995 in Indianapolis, Courtney helped her parents, Matthew Connolly and Denise Watterson ring in the New Year with her big brothers, Curtis and Carter. Courtney was a brave, fearless, and beautiful person, inside and out. Courtney was very passionate in what she believed in, and she touched the life of every person she met. A 2014 graduate of Rushville Consolidated High School, Courtney was an avid music fan, and loved all things related to art & photography – her natural talent allowed us to see the beauty of the world through her eyes. She was gifted with the ability to write in a profound and admirable way and she could often be found writing her thoughts and dreams at any given moment. Besides the arts, Courtney enjoyed watching her brothers play basketball, and she loved being outdoors; whether it be riding her dirt bike or fishing in the river, Courtney made sure she was present in the moment and taking in every moment and experience she could. Those fortunate enough to truly know Courtney immediately recognized her as one of the most loyal and loving people, and will always be remembered by ending each conversation with “love you” and accepting people for who they are, no matter what. Surviving with her parents, Courtney’s void will be felt by her siblings; Curtis (Shelby) Combs, Carter (Sydney) Connolly, Mason Back, Ella Connolly, Marley Back, and Eli Connolly. Also surviving; maternal grandfather, Gerald T Watterson; paternal grandfather, Peter O Connolly; her aunts and uncles; Tracie Watterson, Lorie & Phil Agresta, Angie Leverton, Phillip & Denise Connolly, Andrew Connolly, Peter & Jana Connolly, and Joe & Stephanie Hogsett; her adored nieces and nephews; Dominic, Andrew, and Lyla, and was loved by her many cousins. She is preceded in death by paternal grandmother Connie K Rankin, maternal grandmother Rhonda Hayslett; aunts Susan Danette Watterson, and Jodie Peterson; and great grandparents; Dr. Gerald & Iona Watterson, and Rowland & Wilma Hayslett. The family will receive friends and family to celebrate the life of Courtney from 11:00 – 1:00PM on Thursday, December 2, 2021 at Moster Mortuary located at 334 N Main St in Rushville. A private interment will be held for the family. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made to Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation or A Better Life-Brianna’s Hope.
