I consider myself fortunate to have had Marge Conley as an aunt. Whenever she would come over, whether she was there for a get-together or just passing by, the living room would brighten up as we listened to news of family, friends, and the neighborhood. The talk would range over a variety of subjects, such as the weekly specials at Jewel, the delicious coffeecakes at Wolf's Bakery, or the latest Chicago-style political scandal. Often the subject of education would come up, and we understood that she wanted us all to do well in school.

Friendly and outgoing, she had her own unique style. More often than not, she was all dolled up and coiffed, wearing fancy jewelry. Her smile and laughter and the distinct rhythm and flow of her words were unmistakable. During her visits, lots of information and ideas were discussed, and what became apparent throughout the discussions was her intense love of family. If you were a family member, (and for her that term included nieces and nephews and cousins and aunts and friends,) you could count on her to be cheering for you and proud when you succeeded and offering words of encouragement when you didn't. She had big shoulders--she would pitch in and help when things were difficult. For instance, when my mother was in declining health, Aunt Marge helped care for her.
Over the years, Aunt Marge always kept in contact, even though I had moved away. A letter from her made the day special, and I enjoyed reading her candid observations about the family and her hopes and concerns for us all. Her beautiful penmanship made each page a work of art.

Farewell dear Aunt, I'll always remember your fondness for a good poker game, your fun-loving spirit, and your loving heart.

I was always so proud of having you for a mother, mom. You were a woman of integrity who taught us values that would carry us throughout our lives. You taught us to have faith in God and in ourselves. We learned through your example. I know you're with Mary and Tom and Philip, and finally with your husband and parents and brothers and Helen and Veronica, but most of all you're with God where you belong, and of course, your favorite, St. Anthony. Hope we can live nearly as good a life as you did so we go straight up to Heaven with no stops in between. We miss you and Mary.

love, joann

I knew Mrs. Conley for over 12 years, but still it wasn't nearly enough. I will never forget her heartwarming smile, her laughter, and her constantly polite and generous nature. I have the utmost respect for her strength in all she had persevered through the years. Her vibrant love of live will live on in her children and grandchildren.
