She attended the University of Kentucky and was a noted UK Wildcat Fan and member of Chi Omega sorority.

She eagerly volunteered when called upon and her many accomplishments include Executive Director of The Banana Festival in Fulton, Kentucky, multiple Women’s Golf Club Championships at Chickasaw Country Club, and Chair of Les Passees Stock Exchange. She was a loyal volunteer for The Salvation Army Auxiliary, Arise to Read, and Meals on Wheels. Conley was an active member of Christ Methodist Church and their Women’s Ministry.
