Mrs. Conway was one of the most gracious people I have ever met. John would often see her in the morning as she went into OMOS to worship or as she was walking at the Middle School track. She was always interested in him and our family and she also enjoyed our dogs Mackey and Luke who were on their way to Stackhouse Park with John. I would often run into her at the Giant Eagle or around the church and we had many conversations about life. Mrs. Conway dealt with some hard things on her life but her faith remained strong. Her focus on the well being of others was an important part of her life. She was a blessing to us and to many others. I am grateful her struggles are past and she is at rest with the Lord.
