Zepha Rose Conner, 89, of 808 SW Davis, College Place, Washington, passed away at the General Hospital, Walla Walla, Washington March 5, 2005. Many spoke of her as the "Rose Lady of College Place."

Zepha was born November 29, 1915 at Big Trails, Wyo. to Bert and Grace Ainsworth. The newborn's first home was in a dugout on her parents ranch until they could build their cabin. She and her older brother Clarence attended a small country school in Big Trails through the tenth grade. Zepha continued grades 11 and 12 by correspondence.

On June 5, 1935, Zepha married George Rebedeau. Their joy was short lived for George died in the early fall of 1936. Zepha and her newborn son, Charles lived with her parents until she married Joe Chamberlain on September 30, 1942. This marriage ended in divorce. On December 17, 1949, Zepha married, Earl L. Conner, a long time friend who was now a widower with three small children. They farmed and ranched on Earl's homestead in the Upper Nowood Valley of Wyoming until 1964 at which time they sold the ranch and moved to Gentry, Arkansas. While there, Zepha worked in a cabinet shop to help support the family while her younger children attended Ozark Academy. In 1972, Earl and Zepha moved to College Place, Washington. Earl wanted Zepha to be close to their older children already living there, as well as giving the younger ones an opportunity to attend college there as he knew that he did not have long to live.

She first and foremost loved her Savior, which revealed itself in her love for her family. She was widely known for her friendly smile, evangelism roses, quilt tops, crocheting, Bible studies, and many other investment projects. Her home with a park-like yard was also known for helping many worthy college students with living accommodations. She ever demonstrated a loving, kind, and generous spirit.
