Margaret Lucille Parker (nee Marshall)
December 12, 1930 – April 2nd 2017
It is with great sorrow, love and gratitude that we announce the passing of our mother, Margaret Lucille Parker. Mom was game to do anything and go anywhere, especially if it involved a game of crib, visiting her family, chatting with anyone and everyone, shopping or something delicious to eat. She had many great friends, and all those who knew her will remember her bright eyes and her generous smile.
Survived by her loving children: Laurelle Johnson (Graham), Linda Trendall (Les), Bonnie Brugger (Terry), Barbara Parker (Tony), and David Parker (Kate), 10 grandchildren and 14 great grandchildren. She knew them and loved them all. The great grands knew her as GG; they gave her endless pleasure.
The family would like to extend special thanks to her medical specialists, Dr. Lorree Larrett and Dr. Curt Johnson, for treating Margaret for many years with such skill and respect . She loved you both. Countless other medical personnel worked tirelessly to help her recover from several health issues, and granted us all more time and joy with her.
To the staff at Glastonbury, who bore the burden of her final months with grace, patience and unending kindness, thank you.
Margaret will be greatly missed. She leaves a legacy of unconditional love that her family and friends will always treasure.

I am so sorry for your loss. The loss of a loved one is one of the most difficult things a person may have to deal with in life. We can take comfort from God’s word that tells us he’s aware of our pain. 2 Corinthians 1:3,4 “Praised be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of tender mercies and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our trials so that we may be able to comfort others in any sort of trial with the comfort that we receive from God.”
We are saddened for your loss but pray that all your wonderful memories will bring you great comfort and peace. She was such a vibrant spirit and gave everyone she met such encouragement and joy. Her sister,Millie, was our neighbor, best friend and employee for many years. We only spent a few days with Muggs over the years but they were memorable and so much fun. Know you will miss her. God bless. She leaves a mighty legacy. Will be thinking of you and wishing we were there on April 23rd.
