"Mrs. Conrad" was a second mother to all of us who grew up on Julep Lane in the fifties and sixties. She was always positive and happy; she made each of us feel so special. Love and prayers to all her children and grandchildren. She was a great lady !

Mrs. C was the "Mom next door" when we were growing up. She proved it when she rescued me from the principal's office one day. I was a high school freshman and a classmate reported that I was wearing culottes (horrors!). The teacher had me stand up, turn around, then asked if it was true. I acknowledged that I was not wearing a pleated skirt. So off I went. I knew my Mom wasn't home that day, so I has the office call Mrs. C, as she was the keeper of our extra house key. After explaining my predicament, asking for help, and telling her which skirt in my closet to choose (girls not allowed to wear pants at that time), she agreed to help. As a young teen I didn't think anything about asking this favor; as an adult I marvel that she would be willing to go into our house, upstairs, etc. She brought the change of clothes to what was then the still under construction Forest Park High; I replaced the culottes with appropriate, although shorter, attire, and went back to class. Your Mom just laughed when I thanked her again later, saying she never knew me to be a rebel.

Her Christmas cards and other written communications throughout the years always included encouraging words. She was a special lady, and I will always remember her.

My heart goes out to you all; may you feel God's arms around you during this difficult time.

I remember Mrs. Conrad, whom I met many years ago through her daughters and my friends, Lynn and Leigh, as a very attractive, elegant, intelligent and witty woman. And also as a mother who loved and looked out for her family. What I was unaware of though was her background singing with her sisters for the USO during WWII. Truly a class act. May she rest in peace and her memory be treasured.

I have so many great memories from living next door...the annual neighborhood picnic, spending hours playing inside your house and out, and who could forget the sleepover with a monster under the bed?! Your mom always made me feel welcome and at home. Thanks for the wonderful memories. My condolences and love to your family.
