Obituary for Lily Grey Parker

Lily Grey Parker graduated to heaven on December 13th at the age of 88. She suffered from Alzheimer's disease for the last 8 years of her life, and was a double cancer survivor as well. However, through any of her trials, she had a positive indomitable spirit through it all. She would attribute this to her Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.
Lily was born in Heath Springs, SC on June 19, 1929 to Clifford & Henrietta Threatt. The 6th of 7 children, Lily was a very spry and active girl. In 1948, Lily’s sister Annie and her husband Jesse introduced her to Jesse’s good friend, Glen Parker. They grew in love with one another, and were married in 1952.
Although raised in church and a Christian home, Lily did not get saved until after she married Glen. One night as he was preaching at their church, she was convicted by The Lord that she was not yet a Christian. That night she trusted Christ Jesus and was born again! From that day forward, she never looked back, but was a steadfast and diligent Christian woman. She and Glen raised 4 children, and lived mostly in the southeastern states.
In 2013, she and Glen moved to Santa Maria to live near their son and his family. She is survived by her husband of 65 years, Glen Parker, a son Steve Parker, two daughters Angela Parker and Beverly Woodard, 13 grandchildren and 2 great-grandchildren.
She will be remembered for many things, among them her great “home style” cooking, wonderful mother, wife and Granny, diligent worker, spiritual woman, and always full of energy. She will be greatly missed, but those of us who know Christ as Saviour will see her again someday!
If you knew Lily Grey, please join us for a celebration of her life on Monday, December 18th at the Crosspointe Baptist Church on 1265 W McCoy, Santa Maria CA 93454. Viewing and visitation will begin at 12pm, with the memorial service to follow at 1pm. A luncheon is planned following the service.
