Windsor Chamber offices closed this week after death of leader

WINDSOR — The Windsor Chamber of Commerce offices are closed until March 18 as a result of the death of executive director Michal Connors.

Connors died unexpectedly at home March 1 at the age of 54, according to her obituary. She had served as the director of the Windsor chamber since 2000.

“Thank you to all of you for the tremendous outpouring of sympathy and support following the unexpected loss of our long-time executive director, Michal Connors,” the chamber posted on its Facebook page. “Our chamber board, ambassadors and volunteers are working hard to manage chamber business until a new executive director is hired, but the office will not be staffed during the week of March 11.”

Connors’ death came on the heels of the recent deaths of two other prominent members of the Windsor community: Parks, Recreation and Culture Advisory Board Member Sandy Brug and Historic Preservation Board Member Carrie Ann Lucas.

In a statement released earlier this month, Windsor Mayor Kristie Melendez said “It’s with a heavy heart that our town mourns the loss of three ladies who dedicated their life to public service.”

“Michal Connors, Sandy Brug, and Carrie Ann Lucas made a huge impact on our community and their loss will be felt for some time to come,” she said. “I wish all of their families and friends comfort and peace in knowing that their legacies will be lasting. All three ladies had lives well lived and they will be missed dearly. Windsor was blessed to receive their contributions.”
