Emily Anne Conklin

August 4, 1935 ~ December 31, 2021 (age 86)


Emily Anne Conklin (nee Hunt), 86, of Brighton Township died on

December 31, 2021. Born August 4, 1935, Emily lived most of her life on

the family farm where she enjoyed gardening, baking, and cooking. She

was an avid reader and book lover all of her life. She had a beautiful

voice, and she created her own public speaking career that spanned

about two decades combining humorous anecdotes, stories, and song.

She was hired by many organizations for annual meeting

entertainments, mother-daughter banquets, etc. She made many lasting

friendships from this career. She was quick to make new friends and

was never at a loss for easy conversation.


Emily is survived by her husband of 68 years, Richard Conklin, daughter

Paula Conklin, sons Steve (Terri) Conklin, Brad (Elle) Conklin, and David

Conklin; grandchildren Sarah Conklin, Melanie (Moe) Kramer, Abi

(Steven) Popovich, Rachel (Connor) Baker, Calvin Conklin, Alex Conklin.

She was preceded in death by her sister Mary Evelyn Hunt Roberts.


We would like to express our gratitude to the many kind and caring

professionals who helped us on Emily’s final journey: Dr Georgia

Newman’s office, the NOMS Care Team, Mercy Hospitals (both Oberlin

and Lorain), Welcome Nursing Home, Wesleyan Village, Crossroads

Hospice, and Norton-Eastman Funeral Home. Every person we came in

contact with went above and beyond to help us through the process.

Emily was a life-long dog owner and her last canine friend was Barney,

who she dearly loved. Barney came to Emily through Oasis Animal

Shelter, 44881 US 20, Oberlin OH 44074. If you are so inclined, please

consider a donation to Oasis in lieu of flowers.


A Celebration of Life service will be announced at a later date.
