As an added service, we place all of our obituaries on our website. This allows family and friends to view their loved one's obituary.

Each obituary also offers the opportunity to leave an online memorial. Each personalized memorial will be forwarded to the family.

So if you are unable to physically attend the visitation or funeral service, you may still express your personal condolences. Your condolences will not immediately appear on the web site. They will be reviewed and approved by the funeral home before being placed on the web site.

Wilma L. (Barnett) Conner peacefully left us on Saturday, April 14, 2012 at the Heritage Center. She was born in Winslow, IN on April 5, 1927.

Wilma had a strong Christian faith and worshiped in the Baptist Church. She was a member of the First General Baptist Church in Oakland City, IN where she served the Women’s Bible class in many different capacities, taught Sunday school and served on many other committees and functions.

Wilma was very involved with her sons in their childhood as a Cub Scout den leader, “pink lady” at the school, classroom parent, and supporter of all their activities.

Wilma is survived by her sons, Roger, Randy (Zoe), and Rick (Beth); grandchildren, RJ Conner, Breanna (Aaron) Black, Zach Conner, Jamie (Jason) McLaren, Adam (Abbie Cook-fiancé) Conner, and Katie Conner; and four great-grandchildren, and her sister, Phyllis Preston.

She was preceded in death by her husband, Ken Conner, parents Earl and Cora (Willis) Barnett, sisters, Eldena Poehlein, Beatrice Richardson, Mary Lou Scharfenberger, Ruth Heacock, granddaughter Kiersten L. Conner, and daughter-in-law Kathey Conner.

Services will be held at 10 am on Saturday, April 21, 2012 at the Corn-Colvin Funeral Home in Oakland City, Ind. officiated by Reverend Larry Johnson, with interment at Park Lawn Cemetery in Evansville, IN. Friends may visit Friday from 4 pm to 7 pm at Corn-Colvin Funeral Home and on Saturday from 9 am to service time.

A special thanks to the staff at the Heritage Center for their care during mom’s last months.
