Dorothy Sue (Garner) Conn

June 16, 1937 — August 29, 2023

Dorothy Sue Conn passed away on August 29, 2023, at her residence in Dallas, GA, at the age of 86. She was born on June 16, 1937, to the late Ernest and Lois Garner. Dorothy was a remarkable woman whose warmth and compassion touched the lives of all who knew her. She dedicated her life to being a loving wife to her spouse, Paul Ridley Conn, and a devoted mother to her sons, William Lee Conn and Robert Daryl "Bobby" Conn. She found immense joy in her role as a grandmother to her grandchildren, Paul Conn, Wyatt Conn, and Kyle Conn.

Known for her unwavering love for gospel music, Dorothy found solace and inspiration in its soothing melodies. She would often spend her time singing along to her favorite hymns, finding comfort and peace within the lyrics. In addition, Dorothy had a great passion for spending quality time with her beloved grandchildren. Whether it was sharing stories, playing games, or simply lending an attentive ear, she created cherished memories that will forever hold a special place in their hearts. Another one of Dorothy's simple pleasures in life was her love for sugar kiss melons. Furthermore, Dorothy possessed an undying loyalty to her beloved Atlanta Braves, cheering on her favorite team with unwavering enthusiasm and pride.

Dorothy is preceded in death by her parents, Ernest and Lois Garner; her loving husband, Paul Ridley Conn, and siblings, Geraldine Cook, Charles Garner, and Irene Presley. She is survived by her sons, William Lee Conn and Bobby (Christine) Conn; grandchildren, Paul Conn, Wyatt Conn, and Kyle Conn; brothers, Bobby Garner and Jimmy Garner; sister, Brenda Singleton; sister-in-law, Jean Cone; and cousin, Debra Culver.
