Birth: Dec. 2, 1834, Ireland
Death: Apr. 25, 1910
Dane County
Wisconsin, USA

Death has closed the eyes of another of Sun Prairie's pioneer citizens. This time the summons came to Mrs. Conley and she passed away Monday morning, April 25, 1910, aged 75 years, 4 months, and 23 days; old age and exhaustion being given as the cause of her demise. The shock over her husband's death, which occurred March 15 last, also probably hastened her own. Deceased's maiden name was Mary Hughes and she was born in the parish of Ballinrobe, County of Mayo, Ireland Dec. 2, 1834. In 1848, she sailed with her parents to Birmingham, England, where she was united in marriage, July 29, 1851 to Michael Conley. That same year the young couple came to America locating in Ohio. Five years later, in 1856, they came further into the new west, locating in Wisconsin and October 31, 1859 moved to Sun Prairie. The following year they moved onto the farm at the western limits of the village, which has since been the family home. She was the mother of eight children, two of whom died in infancy and John who died in Minneapolis in 1903. The surviving children are Thomas Conley of Bristol, SD, Mrs. C. F. Brass of Webster, SD, Mrs. Mary O'Leary of St. Paul, and Margaret and James Conley of Sun Prairie, all of whom were at home to attend the funeral. Mrs. Conley in her younger days was always a willing assistant to her neighbors in times of sickness and trouble and her many acts of kindness among friends when she young and strong will make her name revered among her acquaintances. The funeral services were held Wednesday morning at Sacred Hearts Church at 10 o'clock, Father Blum officiating and the remains were placed in their last resting place in the cemetery of that church.
