Laura Davis Conner passed away on Tuesday, Feb. 12, 2019 at Heart of Florida Regional Medical Center. She was born Oct. 19, 1925 in Avon Park, Florida to Carl H. Davis and Millie T. Davis. The family moved and settled in Lake Wales where she worked at Hunt Brothers and met her husband of almost 50 years, Bob Conner.
She was a devoted wife and mother and enjoyed sharing life with many of her lifelong friends and families.

Her life is a wonderful legacy and example to follow: keep focused on what is truly important, not only when your life is easy, but when it is difficult too.

The family will receive friends from 2-3 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 16 at First Baptist Church of Lake Wales followed by the service at 3 p.m.. For those who wish, donations may be sent to the First Baptist Church or the Lake Wales Care Center.
