Obituary of Mary Lee Conyers

Mary Lee Treadwell–Conyers was born on October 20, 1935 in Allendale, South Carolina to the loving parents of Willie and Annie Treadwell. She was raised in a Christian home and attended Manly St. Congregational Church in Raleigh, NC. As a young child, she taught the adult Sunday school class and older members how to read and write. Mary received her formal education in the Allendale County public school system. She graduated from Ligon Junior-Senior High School in 1954. Soon thereafter, she met the love of her life, Nelson Conyers. Their union produced two daughters, Nancy and Cordelia. Following her husband's death, Mary and her two young children relocated to Baltimore. She later continued her education at Strayer Business College receiving a certificate in business administration. Upon graduation, Mary secured employment with the State of Maryland as an administrative assistant for over 30 years. Mary was a founding member of New Faith Christian Community Church, where she participated in a variety of organizations, such as the Trustee Board, Missionary Board, Flower Circle, Usher Board, and Culinary Committee. Additionally, she served as a faithful member of the Women's Department of the United Council of Christian Community Churches of Maryland and Vicinity. For 15 years, Mary was honored to serve as a licensed foster care parent. She was committed to making a difference in the lives of the countless children and young adults to whom she opened her home and arms – offering nurture, instruction, and support during challenging times. Mary entered into eternal life on December 22, 2022. She was preceded in death by her beloved brother, William Treadwell.
