Obituary

Mary Jane Conley Ison, age 85, of West Liberty, KY passed away Saturday, October 16, 2021 at Elliott County Nursing and Rehab, Sandy Hook, KY. She was born September 8, 1936 in Arkon, Ohio to Arthur and Bergie Fincher Conley. She was a member of the Wells Union Church, West Liberty, KY, where she was saved and baptized.

Known to many as Mary Jane, she was simply “Nan” to her family. A strong, hardworking, loving mother, grandmother, and great grandmother, Nan was loved by her daughters and adored by her grandchildren. Her kind heart, loving smile, and Sunday dinners will be sorely missed.

Mary was a hard worker, with a strong work ethic. She retired from Lion Apparel in West Liberty, KY after devoting over 30 years there. After retirement, she enjoyed working in her flower gardens, occasionally traveling to TN with family, and helping babysit her great grandson, Gunnar Clay. Gunnar was her pride and joy, and she always lovingly referred to him as “Nanny’s baby”. She so enjoyed watching him grow and play. Nan loved her family with all her heart, as was made obvious by her constant willingness to offer a listening ear or a helping hand.

Surviving are her two daughters; Candy Day (Danny) and Sherry Terry (Danny) of West Liberty, KY. Two grandchildren, Jon Day, and Brittany Perry (Robby). One great-grandson, Gunnar Clay Perry.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Arthur and Bergie Fincher Conley, her husbands, Vinson Leander Johnson and Arlis Ison, infant daughter, Shirley Ann Johnson, and sister Betty Ann Day.
