Obituary of Rebecca Conard

Rebecca Lynn Grove Conard, 63, of Naples, NY, passed away suddenly on Monday, January 22, 2018. Born in Virginia on September 27, 1954 to James and Clara (Hanggi) Grove. Becky is predeceased by her husband Douglas Conard and her father, James Grove. Becky is survived her mother Clara "Chub" Grove, brothers Jim "Peach" Grove (Mary Ann Paulsen) and Douglas (Denise) Grove, sisters Tina (Joe) Norman and Michaela Mohr, nieces and nephews, Billy (Carrie) Grove, Katresa (Mike) Foster, Jimmy Grove, Libby Grove, Remington Norman, step-daughter, Mary (Jeff) Conard Lopus, grandchildren, aunts, uncles, cousins and many dear friends.

Becky was a baker at Joseph's Wayside Market in Naples for 15 years. In that time, she not only loved her job but loved the Joseph family. She could not wait to return every spring with Jake, Nancy, their boys, Rick and Jay. It gave her great happiness and she was at her best baking for Naples. She loved to see people enjoy her sweet treats, share a story and a few laughs. Cooking for family and friends was one of her passions along with spending time with all the wonderful people who entered her life.

As we witnessed in the last few days, Becky seemed to know everyone in town. The outpouring of kind words and love has completely overwhelmed this family. Becky was a loving, funny, sweet and giving woman. She had great love for her mother, missed her father and husband, cherished her family and friends. She was a fighter and possessed amazing courage. The sudden passing of our sister has been heartbreaking and we are so thankful for the love and support of this community.

Calling for Rebecca will be on Sunday April 22nd at the Edgerton's Party House 8600 Cohocton St. in Naples from 10-2 for refreshments and desserts.
