I just received this news after I has put Hugh's News to bed for Saturday's edition:
Irvina Parker wrote at about 8:30 p. m., January 6, 2017:
"Hard to believe, but at about 3 pm today, Miss Edna entered her Heavenly home. She was under hospice care for less than 24-hours. She was ready for that final journey. We were privileged to be at her side along with Pastor Richard Goad as she drew her last breath. David realized that both of his parents died at about the same hour of the day. Ryan Parker commented how they loved an afternoon nap. She went to sleep for her last siesta and woke up in Heaven. What rejoicing there was!!"
As soon as I receive more information, primarly from the family, I will pass that news on to you.
I do know that Edna has been in declining health for a while.
We all love John and Edna Parker. Edna was full of joy and kept us laughing with her stories, and the funny things she would say.
What wonderful friends the Parkers have been to all of us.
