July 18, 1950 — December 21, 2023


Connie Marie Zarr, 73, of Belgrade, passed away December 21, 2023, after having complications from Breast Cancer. Connie was born July 18, 1950, in Glendive, MT, to Robert & Bonnie Ward. Connie grew up in MT & WA, graduating high school in 1968 in Centralia, WA. After high school Connie attended Cosmetology school in Billings, MT.

Connie worked many jobs but found her career at the Belgrade schools. For 20+ years she was the head cook at the elementary school & then, for most of her career, at the middle school. Connie loved her job & was very good at it. She gained many friends while working there.

Connie’s passion was first & foremost her family. Connie loved her family with all her being. Together they enjoyed camping, fishing, boating, horseback riding, traveling & just being together.

Connie has four grandchildren that were her whole world. She would stop whatever she was doing if they needed anything! She attended every birthday, play, concert, or special event that she could. Xavier, Hannah, Abigail, & Reece will miss her dearly.
