Carroll Lee Conner



Carroll Lee Conner of Rose Hill, North Carolina left his earthly home for his eternal rest on Thursday, March 1, 2018 while at home. He was born on February 17, 1956 in Madison County, Indiana to the late Clois Hershell Conner and Frances Ellen Meeks Conner. In addition to his father, he was predeceased by his sister Sheryl Conner and brothers Jerald Conner and Ronald Conner of Madison County, Indiana.

Surviving are his wife Christina Conner of the home; children--Christopher Conner of Rose Hill, son James "JC" Conner of Summitville, IN, son Braxton Nelson of Summitville, IN, daughter Kari Nelson Jaqua and her husband Beau of Summitville, In; daughter-in-law Jesse Conner of Magnolia, NC; mother Frances Meeks Conner of Madison County, IN; grandchildren Christopher Lee Conner, Brenton Jaqua, Klayre Jaqua, Elyse Jaqua and Emma Jaqua; brother Lonnie Conner of Anderson, IN; sister-in-law Ivonda Conner of Madison County, IN; and several nieces and nephews.

Mr.Conner was led to North Carolina several years ago by his good friend Jack Tucker. He decided to stay here and purchased property in Rose Hill. Work years were spent in self-employment in interior construction. His artistic talents were very obvious in his sheet rock finishing and painting. Many hours were spent in using his tractor to "bush hog" the area around his house or to use the box blade to level his long driveway. This was enjoyment rather than work to him. Gardening was another special interest in his life. He liked watching the New England Patriots on television. When all his work was done, there was always time for fishing in which he was very proficient. More important than all these material things was his family. He loved all his family members but especially the grandchildren, who he adored.
