Martha Conley Obituary

Martha "Marty" Conley

February 28, 1945 - November 29, 2023

Martha “Marty” Conley, 78, born on February 28, 1945, passed away on November 29, 2023, at home with family at her side.  Marty grew up in Jimtown and graduated from Jimtown High School in 1963.  She was married to and is survived by Robert “Bob” Conley, her husband of 59 years.  She is also survived by her three daughters, Elizabeth Conley, Teresa Joyner (Robert), and Rebecca Stone (Brandon), and her two grandchildren, Andrea Papierski (Stephen) and Andrew Kuruda (Ashley) and 3 foster great-grandchildren as well as her older brother James Cervenak and several cousins.

Other than being a dedicated wife and mother, Marty was always the life of the party.  You would find her volunteering at the Lerner Theater almost any time there was a show.  She would be laughing and sometimes dancing with her many friends, especially her “Golden Girls” group, in the lobby.  Marty bowled in a league for over 50 years and enjoyed golfing in a league in the summer.  On a Saturday morning, you would likely find her having breakfast with her Jimtown classmates, including her lifelong friends, Sally and Sally. 

She is a member of the P.O.H. (Pursuit of Happiness).  The women in this group laughed almost continuously, supported each other and the community and raised children who continue their legacy of loving and laughing.  They held annual conventions where they would do skits and entertain everyone else staying in the hotel.

Marty had a little antique shop in downtown, The Pumpkin Vine and later did Estate Sales with her friends Julie and Janet.  She loved discovering interesting trinkets and collectables, often buying items at the end of sales to fill her shelves and curio cabinet at home.

Family was a huge part of her life.  For years, she hosted Christmas and other gatherings for large groups of loved ones and her neighbors. Her sisters-in-law, nieces and nephews all have numerous stories about when she had them laughing until they cried. 

There are so many people who will miss seeing Marty and having their day brightened by her jokes and smiles.  The family invites her family and friends to join us in a Celebration of Life Open House at the Lerner Theater on December 9, 2023, from 2pm to 6pm.  Bring your memories and stories to share.  In lieu of flowers, the family asks for donations to the Center for Hospice.
