Mrs. Conner was born Sept. 2, 1913, in Houston to the late Amelia Virginia Alberti and Flavius Asbury Harkrider. She was educated at Our Lady of Victory and Central High School (now Paschal) and attended TCU.
Through the years, Mrs. Conner was a faithful member of St. Mary Catholic Church and was a founding member of St. Andrew Catholic Church. In support of her husband's law practice, Mrs. Conner was active in the Women's Auxiliary of the Fort Worth Bar Association. She loved golf and was a longtime member of the Colonial Country Club Women's Golf Association. As 47-year members of Colonial CC, she and her husband were active volunteers in the annual Colonial National Invitational Golf Tournament.
