Connie S. Rickard

June 10, 1972 ~ October 25, 2020 (age 48)


MERCER – Connie S. Rickard, 48, of Mercer passed away peacefully on Sunday morning October 25th, 2020 in the comfort of her home surrounded by her family following a hard fought two-year battle with colon cancer.

Connie was born at 2:35PM on Saturday afternoon June 10th, 1972 in Clarksburg, WV to Gene and Sarah (Cropp) McIntyre. Following her graduation from Mercer Area High School, Connie married her sweetheart Robert C. Rickard on July 21st, 1990. 

She was very active with her childrens’ activities and had been a volunteer with the Mercer Lady M’s Softball Team as their treasurer. Her love for the racetrack was second only to that which she held for her greatly valued family and friends. Not to be forgotten is her unforgettable smile and unbreakable faith in and admiration of God.

Her memory will forever live on through her husband of over thirty years Rob, her children son Bobby Rickard and daughter Kayleigh Rickard, all of Mercer; and by her brother Greg (Tiffini) Spencer of East Liverpool, OH. She also leaves behind her beloved dogs Nova and Carmen, as well as cat Mysty.

She was preceded in death by her mother Sarah on August 16th, 2019 and her father Gene on June 8th, 2020.

Private arrangements are under the care of the Sample-O’Donnell Funeral Home in Sharon.
