Samuel Johnson's Sister Connie Dies Aged 40

Connie Johnson, the sister of Australian actor Samuel Johnson, has died at age 40 after a long battle with cancer.

Her family posted a message on Facebook sharing the tragic news.

“We lost Connie today. Or, as she asked me to say, she died of cancer today. It was so beautiful. We laughed, we cried, we sang stupid songs from our childhood to her, which she loved (mostly!),” Samuel Johnson wrote.

“I read her so many village messages, which she relished. She went so richly, and with such grace. Trust me, she was genuinely cushioned by your love, till the end.”

“I’m off to cuddle the fam and warmly embrace an exquisite whisky, in memory of my sister, who did so bloody well, from start to finish. Thanks for everything, Connie Cottonsocks. It was my pleasure to be your Sammy Seal.”
