Mrs. Conner was born on February 5, 1930 to the late Miner and Beulah Eaves Bateman. She was a native of Noxubee County and lived there most of her life, with the exception of brief stays in Florida. She worked for more than 16 years at the Macon Garment Plant. After her retirement, it was her pleasure to take care of her blind husband, Larry Lawrence Conner, who preceded her in death in August 2012 after 65 years of marriage. She loved helping take care of her grandchildren and was an avid gardener who worked in her yard and flower-beds as long as her health permitted. Her greatest pleasure was serving her church and those around her. Her home and her heart was always open, with a smile or a word of comfort, to all who were in need. She was always ready to share her love of her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, with all they met.
Anita Bateman Conner is survived by four daughters, Gloria Shelton (Mike) and Sandra Poag (Dean) both of Cullman, Ala., Patricia Boykin (Kenny) of Macon, Miss. and Christie Sabinson (William) of Nanih Waiya, Miss.; one son, Larry Allen Conner (Michelle) of Shuqualak; a sister, Barbara Rahrig of Avon Park, Fla.; 13 grandchildren and 28 great-grandchildren.
She was preceded in death by her parents; her husband; six brothers, Arvil, Miner.Jr., Edward, Bobby, Harold and Roy Bateman; and three sisters, Flora Bateman, Bertha Higginbotham and Clara Robinson.
Her casket-bearers will be her grandsons, Johnny Shelton, Steve Shelton, Kenny Ray Boykin, Sonny Poag, Allen Conner, Derrick Conner, David Conner, Jonathan Misso and T.J. Hall.
