Construction of the Ann Arbor Public Schools’ Preschool and Family Center was running behind schedule in 2006. But the principal, Connie Knott Toigo - who more than anyone was responsible for the new facility - determined classes would be held, no matter what. With only half the planned space available on the opening date that fall, Toigo arranged to have classes in the finished portion of the facility at 2775 Boardwalk St. Those who knew her say such dedication and determination were typical of Toigo, who died Dec. 30 of complications from cancer treatment.

A leader in early childhood education and the longtime principal of the Ann Arbor Preschool and Family Center is being remembered for her love of children and her dedication to giving every child an opportunity to learn. Connie Knott Toigo died Dec. 30 following a battle against cancer, which had been diagnosed in September. A memorial service for her has been tentatively scheduled for 1 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 17 at Skyline High School, 2552 N. Maple, Ann Arbor. She was 47.
