Justine Conerly passed away on Dec. 29, 2018, at the age of 33 at Ochsner Hospital.

Justine was a 2003 graduate of Franklinton High School. She decided to continue her education at Southern University and A&M College in Baton Rouge, where she would earn a Bachelor of Science Degree in Nursing. Justine truly lived life to the fullest — through simple pleasures; visiting with family and friends, laughing, and spending time with her nieces and nephews. Her passion for homemaking showed through her delicious baking and beautiful sewing.

Justine leaves to cherish her life: a beautiful baby daughter, Julia Reece Conerly; her parents, Harvey and Deonne Conerly of Franklinton; two sisters, Ebony Jackson and Eugiene Conerly of Baton Rouge; one brother, Malcolm Conerly of Seattle, Wash.; grandfather, Marvin Conerly of Franklinton; aunts and uncles, Silas J. Conerly (Joyce) of Gaithersburg, Md., Robert Conerly of Upper Marlboro, Md., Lillian D. Mitchell of Seattle, Mattie Conerly-Porter of Forestville, Md., Albert C. Conerly (Ingrid) of Seattle, Santa C. Jones (Lindsay) of St. Louis, Mo., Sharon E. Conerly of Ft. Washington, Md., Roy L. Conerly (Alice) of Mandeville, Michael A. Conerly of Seattle, Rory Lee, Denise Jones and Victor Leeks, all of Los Angeles, Calif.; niece, Saretta Mixon of Los Angeles; and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.

Preceding her in death are her grandmothers, Shirley Conerly of Franklinton, and Julia Leeks of Los Angeles; and aunts, Frita May and Sheree Elis of Los Angeles.

The funeral service will be Friday, Jan. 11, at 11 a.m. at Bethel Church of Christ Holiness USA, with Elder Alvin Partman Sr. officiating.
