Warren Conger

PACKWOOD — Warren Eugene Conger’s eternal reward was granted June 30, 2014, in Noblesville, Indiana, where he and his wife, Frances, had lived since 2005.

He was born Sept. 20, 1924, in rural Hedrick to Carl and Mary Baker Conger. He graduated from Packwood Iowa High School in 1942 and married Frances Lee Kenyon March 31, 1946, and farmed with his wife near Packwood until 1983. They moved to Fairfield, where he was a court attendant until his retirement in 2000. He and Frances then moved to Iowa City until 2005, when they moved closer to family located in Indiana. They are the parents of three daughters, Dianne (Fred) George of Edmonds, Washington, Mary (Steve) Adam of Greensburg, Indiana, and Janet (Terry) Derby of Fairfield.

He was a member of the First Christian Church of Packwood and a 50-plus year member of the Masonic Lodge and a Shriner. He had a passion for golf, bowling, laughter and never knew a stranger. He loved his wife and family, who will miss his presence but always carry him in their minds and hearts.
