Dena, being born in Washington, D.C., was orphaned as a child and was under foster care. She moved to Los Angeles in her early 20s and gave birth to a daughter, Tatiana Molinar. She worked in a bank as a data entry clerk to raise her daughter.
Connelly died on April 30, 2020, after battling with the novel coronavirus for weeks. She was 64. Molinar said her mother suffered from chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and had been hospitalized severally over the years. It was unclear how Connelly contracted the virus.
Dena lived as a fighter, and she died as a fighter. She was an honest person with great integrity, and she was stubborn and nurturing. She would say everything like it is and never cared about hurting someone’s feelings. Her hobbies were gardening and reading mystery books. She loved red mail polish.
Connelly survivors are; her daughter and two grandchildren, Sage and Lennox.
