Arleen Brown Conravey, 71, entered into eternal rest in the presence of her loved ones on Sunday, September 6, 2020.

Beloved wife of the late Paul Edward Conravey. Loving mother of Christa Conravey Tuller (husband, James) and Casey Paul Conravey (wife, Shana). Proud grandmother of Rylee Lauren Richard and Barrett Paul Richard. Daughter of the late Kathleen Laurent Brown and Arthur Francis Brown. Sister of Terri Ann Brown and Mary Brown Davis (husband, Donald). She will be sadly missed by a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, other relatives and friends. Arleen was born in New Orleans, Louisiana on July 20, 1949. She was a graduate of St. Mary's Dominican High School and University of New Orleans, where she received her Bachelor of Science degree in Biology Education. She dedicated over 40 years of her life to teaching science to students at a number of schools, including 19 years at St. Clement of Rome School and years later, at East Jefferson High School in Metairie. She retired from teaching in 2017. A devout Catholic, she was a long time parishioner of St. Clement of Rome Church.

Arleen was an accomplished homemaker whose life reflected her love of traveling (especially cruising), enjoying Mardi Gras festivities, shopping and relaxing on the Gulf Coast, rooting for the Saints during football games, and spending quality time with her family and friends. She was happiest when surrounded by her children and grandchildren, whom she cherished. Friends and family, please join us to celebrate her life on Thursday, September 10, 2020 at St. Clement of Rome Church, 4317 Richland Ave. in Metairie. Visitation will begin at 10 a.m., with a Funeral Mass to begin at 1 p.m. Interment will follow at Lake Lawn Mausoleum.

Your kind heart and gentle caring spirit were evident each morning we greeted each other at EJHS. You were an important part of many students’ lives at school. Our department was graced by your accepting, insightful presence. God surely loaned EJ an angel when he sent you to us. Rest peacefully, Arleen.

Mrs. Conravey you are going to be deeply deeply missed by your East Jefferson Warriors family. You were truly an inspiration to all the kids you taught and to all of your colleagues that you worked with. You had a soft spot in your heart for kids with special needs such as hearing Impaired students and students who just needed that little extra boost to get them across the stage to graduate. You touched many of lives, hearts and soul through your journey of affectionate teaching. Take your rest, you have earned your wings in Heaven. You will truly be missed.

There was never a time that we were with Arleen that we didn’t feel her loving heart and enjoy her bright smile! Even in sickness, she brightened our days with appreciation for our prayers and support.
May the Brown and Conravey Families know that it was our privilege to share laughter and good times with such a loving Sister/Mom/Grandmother.
Peace, my Friend, you earned it!
