Connie Sue Shortt, age 63 of Willard, Missouri, passed away Sunday, January 19, 2014 at The Meyers Center in Springfield, MO.  She was born April 27, 1950 in Willard, the daughter of Dennis Jackson and Joanna (Doke) Jackson. Connie was an artist from a very young age which became her dream career over the past 35 plus years.  Her work was deeply inspired by her strong faith and love for the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Connie loved her family and embraced life with a huge heart. As a final act of love for others, Connie gifted her eyes to the Saving Sight Foundation.  She will be sadly missed by her family, but fondly remembered. Connie is survived by her loving sons Clint Shortt of Sparta, Andy Shortt of Ozark, and her self-proclaimed son Trever Micham of Ozark. Connie was blessed with one grandson Ethan Shortt of Sparta that she doted on and truly adored. Additionally, Connie is survived by her siblings Pamela Drennan of Springfield, Steve Jackson and wife Mary of Willard and Michele Langlo and husband Bill of Willard; her extended family, many caring relatives and a long list of devoted friends.  Connie was preceded in death by her parents, a sister Rebecca Fischer and a nephew Jeremiah Jackson. The family would also like to extend a special thank you to the most amazing staff at the Meyers Center in Springfield for their unbelievable care and compassion they provided for Connie and her family. Funeral services for Connie will be 2:00 p.m., Thursday, January 23, 2014 in Barnes Family Funeral Home, Ozark with Pastor Mitch O'Neil officiating.
