A flock of 10 birds took flight over Highland Cemetery Monday morning during Lena Conger’s funeral. They weren’t headed just anywhere; they were going back to Topeka, their home. 

Conger, who died Thursday, was laid to rest.

In honor of her peace and freedom, family members released the doves, said Conger’s niece, Barbie Webber.
