Nellie Connally, Class Act

Yesterday, Nellie Connally, former first lady of Texas and last surviving member of President Kennedy’s limousine when he was assassinated, passed away. In the course of my work, I’ve processed hundreds of interviews from all sorts of people but a particular interview with Nellie was one of the most touching and heartbreaking I’ve ever encountered. Nellie was immensely spunky, intelligent and eloquent. Although she’s most remembered by the world for her privy to the Kennedy assassination, an event which also injured her husband Texas Governor John B. Connally Jr., and which she describes with both frankness and sensitivity, I’m sure her life’s accomplishments were many and grand. Peace out, Nellie.
