Gwendolyn Pearl Conner, 82, of Delphi, passed away at 12:30 pm, Thursday, November 14, 2019 at her residence surrounded by her family.
She was born on March 12, 1937 in Lafayette to the late Frederick and Eva (White) Carter. She had three marriages. Husbands, Wade Morgan, Jerome Weis, and Harold Conner all preceded her in death.
Gwendolyn had worked several years at the former Twin Lakes Village Nursing Home and also owned the Hillbilly Pet Shop formerly of Monticello.
She was a very private person and had a passion for animals. She was devoted to the nurturing of and caring for all types of animals including injured wild animals or their offspring and strays. She also raised goats, and as a result, was affectionately referred to as "Grandma Goat".
She was a member of Hickory Grove Church.
She enjoyed crocheting and made many afghans which she gave to her family and donated to numerous charitable organizations or for charitable causes.
She loved her family especially her grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
Surviving are her children, Wayne (Cora) Morgan of Renton, WA, Cindy (Larry) Turner of Delphi, Kenneth Morgan of Orlando, FL, Frederick (Fonda) Weis of Monon, Jay Weis of Crawfordsville; nineteen grandchildren, and thirty-four great-grandchildren.
