SHARE Obituary: Eileen Banks Conder

Eileen Banks Conder 1926 ~ 2007 Our beloved wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother, Eileen Banks Conder returned to the loving arms of her Father in Heaven on April 25, 2007 Eileen was born in Longton, England on August 15, 1926 to Alfred and Annie Banks and was the youngest of three children. She attended schools in Longton and finished her education early in order to work for the Col. Barratt as a secretary during the war. The war brought many American servicemen to the British Isles and was the basis for our parents finding one another during this turbulent time. Although mom and dad met in the spring of 1945 mom had promised not to marry until after the war was over. Mom married Dean Earl Conder on August 23, 1945. Soon after, dad left England to return to the US with his army battalion and mom followed on the Queen Mary six months later to be reunited with her love in Lehi, Utah. Their union was later solemnized in the Salt Lake LDS temple in 1968. They cherished their membership in the church serving in many positions. Mom especially loved working with the primary association. She also gave her talents to the Utah Girls Village for many years and the University Hospital Ladies Auxiliary Association. Mom and dad enjoyed a second home in St. George where they spent winters and continued to volunteer their time to the church and local agencies. Eileen is survived by her husband, three sons and one daughter. Robert (Cynthia) Conder of Corvallis Oregon, Karen (Howard) Smith of Salt Lake City, Jeff (Shannon) Conder of Sandy Oregon and Alan (Lisa) Conder of Livermore California, eleven grandchildren and seven great grandchildren and her sister Nancy Justice of Cornwall England. She was preceded in death by her brother Alf. We would like to thank the many doctors and nurses who have cared for our mother at the Garden Terrace Care Center.
