LaJulia Conerly was born on Aug. 4, 1952, to the Late Hayward Brumfield and the late Charlene (Milton) Conerly-Bolton. She parted this life and transitioned to her heavenly home on Friday, Dec. 30, 2016.

LaJulia worked at the Washington Parish Clerk of Court Office as a certified deputy clerk for 35 dedicated years. She was the first black female hired at the clerk’s office. She affectionately and passionately served in several divisions: criminal court, juvenile court, deeds and mortgages, conveyance, and court of appeals. She knew every division in the clerk’s office, and served the community of Washington Parish and beyond. She never met any strangers and was always willing to help everyone. She shared encouraging words to all she came in contact with and all who knew her and loved her.

Hermon; nine grandchildren; three godchildren; and a host of other relatives and friends.
