Dr. Georgia Kathleen Connor

November 20, 1949 – January 20, 2019

Dr. Georgia Kathleen Connor went home to be with the Lord, at the age of 69, on January 20, 2019, in Port Angeles.

She will be lovingly remembered by her sister, Eileen; her two brothers, Brad and Duncan; and many nieces, nephews, cousins; her Goddaughter, Kathy Easton; friends and colleagues.

Dr. Connor was born November 20, 1949, in Columbus, Ohio, to Nolen D. Connor DVM and Lena Grace (Cooper) Connor. She attended Kalamazoo Central High School, and Western Michigan University, and was referred to as Kathy.

She received her B.F.A., and M.A., with honors, from The Ohio State University School of Arts and Sciences, then performed PhD research in Neuro Science and Neuro Feedback at UCLA, and VAMC.

As a Neuro Scientist, in her private biofeedback practice, Mind Moves, Dr. Connor served learning challenged children, in southern California, for more than 30 years. In 1993, she founded Possibility Kids 2001, a non-profit organization. She was an inventor and created the prototype, ÒMind Moves Study Buddy,Ó which was designed to help children synchronize their brains to hear words at the same rate as their peers, so that they could hear, speak, and communicate.

She was an active member of the Association of Christian Therapists for 15 years, which was a very important part of her Charismatic healing and spiritual life. In 2015, she moved to Washington State and resided in Sequim and then Port Angeles.

A funeral service in memory of Dr. Connor will be held Saturday, February 2, 2019, at 1 PM at the First Baptist Church, 105 West 6th Street, Port Angeles, Washington, with Teresa Hanson and Pastor Tim Hughes officiating. Interment of her ashes will take place in Kalamazoo, Michigan, at Mount Everest Memorial Cemetery, alongside her parents.

Memorial donations in memory of Dr. Connor may be made to the First Baptist Church in Port Angeles.

She was graced with the special gifts of singing, dancing, playing the violin and piano, and derived great pleasure in communicating with animals (cats, dolphins, birds, and squirrels), and being in nature. She loved her work and especially enjoyed helping children and adults discover their special gifts. Her joy for life, contagious giggle, and habit of fluffing her bangs, will be terribly missed.

Dr. Connor showed her unyielding faith for our Lord Jesus Christ up through the end.
