Marion F. Conver 94, of Louisville, KY, passed away on March 26, 2019, at the Episcopal Church Home of Louisville.

Formerly of the Washington, D.C. area, she was a member of the Westport Road Baptist Church since moving to Louisville, and when able, attended the First Southern Baptist Church in Clarksville, Indiana, as well as Melbourne Heights Baptist Church in Louisville.

Mrs. Conver spent the bulk of her adult years as a devoted wife, homemaker, and caregiver. Earlier, she was an elementary school teacher, daycare worker, and substitute teacher. Missions were a life-long theme. She served and led in local church Women’s Missions groups for many years. Perhaps her most gratifying job was when she served as a secretary for the office of the Southern Baptist Foreign Mission Board in Taipei, Taiwan. Her children and grandchildren honor her legacy in education and the love of the Church by serving in education, ministry, missions, medicine, law, and through active participation in local churches.

She was preceded in death by her husband, Charles M. Conver of Louisville, KY; parents, Edward and Maude Coates of Silver Spring, MD; sisters Edna Boyd of Washington and Lillian Leland of California; and a grandson, Michael L. Conver of Louisville, KY.
