    • Ruby Myrtice Conner, 95, of St. George, GA., passed away March 21, 2009. She was born to Joel and Ola Hodges on April 14, 1913. She was raised in St. George, Ga., and was preceded in death by her husband, Frank Conner, 3 brothers, Willie, Marshall and W.A. Hodges, 3 sisters, Maybelle Hill, Marie Conner and Eula Arnold.

      On January 11, 1931 she married Frank Conner who along with his father operated D.W. Conner and Sons for many years. In 1956 Myrtice and Frank moved to Camp Blanding, FL where Frank went to work for the State of Florida. They spent 17 years living on beautiful Kingsley Lake. Her love for fishing was formed at an early age by her grandmother Bathsheba Gainey, so living on a lake was a thrill for her.

      In 1973 Myrtice and Frank moved back to their beloved community of St. George, where they built a new home. Her love of flowers and gardening took over and she spent many hours canning and arranging her flowers. Visitors as well as the community always knew they could find a good meal or help if they went to "Ms. Myrtice's" house. She became very active in the Callahan Chapter, Order of the Eastern Star where she served as Worthy Matron. She was also a lifelong member of the First Baptist Church of St. George.

      For the past several years she spent her time between her daughter and son-in-law Norma and Bill Oliver's home in Snellville, Ga. and son Vernon and Frances Conner's home in Winter Springs, FL. She has resided for the past several years in Oviedo, Fl where she attended the First Baptist Church of Oviedo and was a member of the Joy Sunday School class.

      She was a devoted mother to her children Julian (Alma) Conner, Callahan; Betty (Leonard) Horne, Jacksonville, FL; Norma (William) Oliver, Snellville, GA.; Vernon (Frances) Conner, Winter Springs, FL 10 grandchildren George (Ann) Horne, Wayne (Joy) Horne, Kenny (Tina) Horne, Lanette (Dale) Denby, Toby Horne, Ernie (Patty) Horne, Steven (Kate) Conner, Jennifer (Jason) VanderVossen, Stephanie (Greg) Williford and Carey (Heather) Oliver, 15 great-grandchildren, 8 great-great-grandchildren. She is also survived by several nieces, nephews and cousins that she loved dearly.

      Memorial service will be held at First Baptist Church Oviedo on Thursday, March 26, 2009 at 7:00 p.m. Visitation will be held at the Callahan Funeral Home, Friday, March 27, 2009 between 6:00-9:00 p.m. Funeral will be held at the First Baptist Church St. George, Saturday, March 28, 2009 at 10:00 a.m. Interment at Conner-Green Cemetery.
