Anna Marie Parker, 56

Anna Marie Parker, 56

Anna Marie Parker joined her Savior, Jesus, on Tuesday, September 24, 2019. She was 56 years-old.

Anna was such a bright spot in this world with her loving and kind spirit, giving heart, and infectious smile and laugh. Anna loved her husband and her kids fiercely. She loved all her family, church, community, and all her employees of Parker Corporation. She continually bragged on all of them and told them they were the best. Anna and Greg worked hard, everyday, with their company and farm to provide for their family and friends and to show them that love never fails. But most of all, she loved her Jesus and her faith never wavered. She not only instilled values into her children, she also taught them to always keep Jesus first, as he will never fail you. One of Anna’s greatest joys was to teach children about Jesus at Vacation Bible School at Faith Harvest. Anna loved all of her VBS kids and loved blessing them. Anna touched everyone’s hearts that she came in contact with. She would give the shirt off her back if she needed to. She enjoyed watching her kids, nieces, nephews, and grandkids play sports and show livestock. She will be incredibly missed and though this pain we feel is indescribable we are rejoicing with the fact that she is in Heaven with her Jesus. And sometimes you just need some barn time. 

Anna was born on December 17, 1962. She is the wife of Greg Parker. She is survived by her husband, and her kids, Justin (Jamie) Robertson, Katie (Kevin) Holter, Jacob (Taylor) Parker, and Jordan Parker; grandchildren, Makenzie and Kendra Robertson, and Hunter and Riley Holter.
