One of the finest this world could hold
Never selfish, always kind
These are the memories she leaves behind…
Daughter, Sister, Wife, Mother, and Friend…
Mrs. Willie Louis Jones Parker, beloved daughter of the late Edgar and Blanche Jones Sherrill, was born in Iredell County on February 10, 1931. Willie entered eternal rest on Monday, May 28, 2019, surrounded by her family.
She was a graduate of Morningside High School, Class of 1952, and at an early age was a member of First Baptist Church. Following her marriage to Robert Parker, she united with Third Creek Baptist Church in Stony Point. She was an active member of Third Creek serving faithfully until her health began to fail. She served as an Usher, Missionary, Culinary, Youth Advisor, Choir Member and Deaconess.
In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by a son, Robert Parker; a daughter, Louise Parker; siblings, Ralph Sherrill, Edgar Sherrill, Johnny G. Sherrill, Hathe Mae Sherrill Grobes, and Pearl S. Holland.
Those left to cherish her memory are her husband of sixty-one years, Robert of the home; her daughters, Dianne J. Coulter of Gastonia, Donna P. Moser of Stony Point and Tameria (Steve) Corpening of Hickory; three siblings, Richard (Lillian) Sherrill of Statesville, Wanda D. Sherrill of Washington, DC and Deborah Sherrill of Savannah, Georgia; three grandsons, Phillip J. Parker and A. Aaron Moser, both of Stony Point and Johnathan A. Coulter of Gastonia; and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, other relatives, lifelong friends, and the Third Creek Church Family.
And as she sleeps a perfect sleep,
Her memory we will always keep.
Our love for her continues.
