Mrs. Geo. W. Conley Passes
Rebecca S. Hooper was born near Baltimore, Maryland, May 25th, 1828, and died at Dayton, Wash., April 10th, 1920, at the age of nearly 92 years.
With her husband, Geo. W. Conley, she came to Joseph in 1888 where he died in 1907. During this period of nearly twenty years they contributed largely to the development of the county and added materially to the social life of this community. Following the death of Mr. Conley she resided with a daughter Mrs. W.T. Mahon until last summer when she went to Dayton to make her home with another daughter, Mrs. C.F. Austin.
Of a family of eleven children seven survive her. They are Mrs. Mary Grisham, of Springfield, Missouri, J.M. Conley of Flora, Mrs. W.T. Mahon, of Joseph, Mrs. Elizabeth Tyler of Stanfield Oregon, and J.C. Conley of Enterprise, G.F. Conley of Eugene Oregon and Mrs. C.F. Austin of Dayton, Wash.
Mrs. Conley has been practically helpless following a fall three years ago.
Interment was made at Dayton, Wash. Tuesday.
