MARY O. CONOVER

TARBORO — Mary Osborne Conover died Feb. 18, 2014 at Vidant Edgecombe Hospital in Tarboro, NC. She was a resident at The Fountains at the Albemarle retirement community where she and her late husband, Jack, became residents in January, 1998. Mr. Conover died in Dec. 2001.

Prior to moving to Tarboro, the Conovers lived in New Bern, moving there in 1986 from New York City, where they had owned a public relations agency catering to nationally known companies and individuals in fashion, building products, sports and interior design.

Born in Ottumwa, Iowa, on Jan. 30, 1925, Mrs. Conover graduated cum laude from the University of Iowa in 1946 with a degree in journalism and worked briefly in Chicago before moving to New York.

In New Bern, she served on the boards of Craven Concerts and Atlantic Dance Theatre, and was a charter member of the Coastal Women's Forum. In Tarboro, she served on the board of EdgecombeARTS.

There is to be no service. Mrs. Conover's cremains are to be scattered, as were her husband's, near Penfield Light in Long Island Sound. Immediate survivors are a cousin, Julie Mellor Reid, of Alhambra, Calf, and a niece, Sandra Conover Bruno, and her husband, Frank, of New Bern.

Arrangements are by Carlisle Funeral Home, Inc. of Tarboro. Online condolences may be directed to the family by visiting www.carlislefuneralhome.com.
