Carol J. Conley

Carol J. Conley, 74, of San Pierre, passed away unexpectedly in her home December 10, 2020.

Carol was born in Toledo, Ohio, to Charles and Bertha (Gang) Schramm on April 21, 1946. She moved to Indiana to work at Owen’s Corning Fiberglas where she met the love of her life, Jerry Conley. Jerry and Carol married on August 12, 1985, in Valparaiso. Carol went on to work as an accountant for Vale Park Animal Hospital in Valparaiso. Her two favorite things were her family and her animals. She loved dogs, cats, horses, etc. and never had a house without them. She was independent, stubborn, and intelligent. Those close to her remember her for being a selfless, kind friend. After retirement she enjoyed going on camping and fishing trips with her husband. She loved swimming with her grandkids and watching Lady and the Tramp. She was always willing to spend time with her family whenever they called last minute, especially if it was for a game of cards.

She is survived by her loving family: husband: Jerry, daughter: Heather (Willie) Wireman, step-sons: Jerry Conley Jr. and Joe (Dee) Conley, granddaughters: Andrea (Steve) Caputo and Autumn Wireman.

Carol was preceded in death by her parents and her special adopted mother: Genevieve Payne.

Friends are invited to visit with the family from 3:00 until 6:00 p.m. on Thursday, December 17, 2020 at the Boersma Funeral Home, 90 E. Grove St., Wheatfield, Indiana. Graveside services will take place on Friday, December 18, 2020 at the San Pierre Cemetery.

Carol was the happy & knowledgeable voice I heard on the phone, when I first became a client of Vale Park. As time went on, she became a love to our Pets, Shady, Angel, & then Goldie. When Angel became ill & I could not lift her, to bring her in to the clinic, Carol & Con came to my home, and helped to take her back to Vale Park. Carol boarded our pups when we were visiting family out of state, & I knew she cared for them like her own. My pups & I were blessed by her care, love, and forever kindness. Thank you Carol, for teaching us your ways. With Love & all good thoughts & blessings for Carol, her loving husband & family. Darlene McKenzie

I came to know Carol when she worked at Vale Park Animal Hospital. She was so warm and welcoming and was also so compassionate at the sad times. She will be greatly missed by her family and friends.

My heart is broken broken.

Carol was always a ray of sunshine, Carol and Jerry adopted our dog Amy when we couldn't keep her, later after when we were looking for a cat she always came thru. She was the keeper of pets, just visiting her on their way to their permanent homes. She would always rescue a cat or dog. Loved it when she would come over to my store after she got of work. I know heaven got another Angel.
