We are deeply sorry for your loss - the staff at Sanders Funeral Home
On August 23, we lost our loving mother, grandmother, aunt and friend. Shirley was born December 10, 1931, in Sedro-Wooley, Washington. She has now gone to join her Lord and Savior and join our father.
Shirley graduated high school in Sedro-Wooley, where she met the love of her life, Wayne Parker. The two married on February 9, 1951 and enjoyed 55 years of marriage before his passing in 2006.
Shirley’s family was always her priority in life. She loved all the time she spent with each and all of them.
Shirley is survived by her three children, Vickie and husband Steven Osborne, Kathy and husband Jerry Young, and John and his wife Doreen Parker. Her grandchildren Joselyn and husband BJ Moss, Kasidy Parker, Codey Young, Stephanie and husband Tommy Antoni, Daniel and wife Kim Osborne, Matthew and wife Alyssa Osborne, Ann and husband Chad Lannom, Jerry William and wife Jennifer Young, Megan and husband Vitaliy Pilopovich. Ten great-grandchildren and two great great-grandchildren, with a third on the way, three nephews and two nieces.
Shirley was preceded in death by her husband Wayne, grandson Derek, her mother Mae Kerlee, her in-laws John and Bertha Parker, her sister Evelyn and brother-in-law Lloyd Armey, niece Sandy and two sister-in-laws Jean and Willyne.
The family would like to thank Rebecca and the other Hospice nurses for their care and support. We would also like to express our appreciation for the wonderful neighbors mom had that looked out for her. A very special thank you to Judy Butler for her invaluable help.
Graveside services will be held Wednesday, August 31, at 1 p.m. at Ocean View Cemetery. Arrangements are under the care of Sanders Funeral Home. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Hospice of Humboldt or St. Jude’s Children Research Hospital.
