Abigail “Abbey” Mae Conner, a 20-year-old student at the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater, passed away tragically from a pool accident.

Bill Conner, Abbey’s father, described his daughter as a handful, a pistol and a smiling and loving person. Abbey was loved by so many. More than 500 people attended her celebration of life.

Abbey made the decision to be a donor when she was in high school. Abbey was an organ, eye and tissue donor. Bill said, “With this tragedy, the donation helped other people live or live a better life."
