Obituary for Edward C. Conley

Edward C. Conley, 84 of North Loup passed away peacefully on July 9, 2019 at Brookefield Park in St. Paul. Ed’s wishes were to be cremated. 

Ed was born October 11, 1934 in Omaha.  Be sure to note, for anyone who knew him, that he probably started telling stories to the Doctor the minute he saw him! 

He was the son of Charles and Mae Conley and husband of Sharon, all who have proceeded him in death.  Survivors of his immediate family are; daughter Lynn Anthony, son Steven Conley, son Randy and Tammy Conley, brother Jim and Colleen Conley, and sister Patricia Wickman.  He has six grandchildren and eight great grandchildren. 

Ed graduated High School from Omaha South in 1953.  He went on to apprentice at the Omaha Power Company.  He and Sharon were united in marriage on April 15, 1960. 

The family then moved to Muncie, IN where he worked for Westinghouse.  In 1966 they moved back to Nebraska where they purchased the Elba Club in Elba, NE.  Ed never knew a stranger, which is one of the reasons the Club was so successful. 

In the summer times he would work on irrigation systems or put up grain bins in a wide area through the state.  After the sale of the Club he contracted out to several companies in Arizona while Sharon took care of her parents there.  About 20 years ago they moved back to the family farm in North Loup.  Here he was Maintenance for NoLo Villa and took pride in caring for the town swimming pool. 

Ed enjoyed helping friends and neighbors throughout the community.  He liked working on construction projects and mowing the three acres of lawn around the house. 

When he was in Elba, he was a volunteer for the Fire Department.  In North Loup he had been a Lion Member for over 15 years and supported other organizations throughout the Community.  One of his favorite pastimes was to join the others that gathered for coffee in the mornings and afternoons to, uh, shoot the breeze.  Once again regaling on new and old stories being told. 

There is to be a Celebration of Life lunch on August 3rd at the North Loup Community Building starting at 11:30 a.m.  Please plan on attending so that you can regale tales of Ed.  In lieu of flowers memorials are suggested to family’s choice, the North Loup Lions, and the Elba or North Loup Fire Departments.
