In Memory of Tina Jo Conner

Tina Jo Conner, 59, of Meridian, Idaho peacefully passed away Monday, June 4, 2018 in her home supported by unconditional love and surrounded by her three sons. Tina believed that kindness is everything, that love is love, that no human is illegal, that black lives matter, and that women's rights are human rights. She was not afraid to speak her mind if her opinion was unpopular, as long as it had integrity and humility. She freely sacrificed her time, her money, her emotions, her sleep, her desires, and, at times, a bit of her sanity for the welfare of her boys. ​

She also had a wicked sense of humor that often resulted in uproarious laughter and, as she blamed on having three kids, would sometimes end in "accidents" and a quick outfit change. Tina had an affinity for dogs and hummingbirds; she was fond of travelling and photographs; she enjoyed potato chips and pedicures; she liked flowery conversations and flowery gardens; and she absolutely loved being a mother and grandmother. 

​​Tina is survived by her three sons: Thaddeus Michael Marks, Trevor William Marks, and Jesse Otis Conner; her grandson: Quetzal Levi Marks; her sisters: Rhonda Dee Martinez, Colleen Ann Nicely, and Carol Lee Foster; her BFF: Mary Margaret Kath; and various cousins, nieces, nephews, and friends. Tina is preceded in death by her parents: Robert Dean Rundle and Darlene Rose Moore.

Formal services will not be held in accordance with Tina's wishes.  In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Tina's name to the Ocular Melanoma Foundation.  Tina's sons would like to extend special thanks to Beth Maucere, Melanie Fausett, Rhonda Martinez, and Maggie Kath.
