Roberta “Bert” Conyers was born on January 25, 1936, in the middle of the Moore mix; during a blizzard. 

Born in Mapleton, IA, Bert moved to Des Moines, IA, during her first-grade year with her family and then returned to Mapleton for her third-grade year. She went on to graduate from Maple Valley High School with the class of 1954.

On November 13, 1955, in the St. Matthew Lutheran Church of Mapleton, Bert married the love of her life Robert L. “Bob” Conyers, in the same church where she was baptized and confirmed.  The couple called Mapleton home and were blessed with three children: Patty, Carrie, and Robert R.

As a young girl, Bert worked at the local dry cleaners. In the 70’s she owned and operated the Clothes Shack. She also worked at Van’s Clothing Store, Fiesta Foods, and Conyer’s Music. Bert loved working with the public and visiting with old friends and making new ones. 

Together Bert and Bob liked going for long drives. They drove across many states including Canada, either on their motorcycle or later in life, their convertible making many dear friends along the way. After retiring the couple enjoyed going south to Orange Beach, AL, where they enjoyed: golfing, listening to great music, eating delectable food, exploring, and spending time with their family and friends. 

Bert always looked forward to her Thursday morning coffee group at the Beef-n-Brew. She also liked golfing, reading, shopping for the latest fashion and shoes, getting pedicures, traveling, and family vacations. Bert treasured every moment spent with family. 

At 81 years young, Bert attended her first concert (Garth Brooks) in Sioux Falls, SD, with her two daughters and two granddaughters, she had a BLAST! She will be truly missed by her family and friends.
