Judy Carol Parker, age 73, passed away on Tuesday, August 24, 2021. She was born in Sherman, Texas on April 28, 1948.
Judy worked hard her whole life, and set the example for her daughters on how to work hard to achieve the most out of life. She retired from Boeing Electronics after a 30 year career, and even continued working at Bell Helicopter where she eventually retired again to spend extra time with her family. Caring for her grandchildren and great-grandchildren brought her joy.
Judy resided in Fort Worth, Texas and was a very active member of her church community, Life Fellowship in Hurst, where she had been a dedicated member for nearly 50 years. She worked at Life Fellowship Child Development Center where she cared deeply for each and every child and shared her love for the Lord daily.
Judy was preceded in death by her husband, Gary Victor Parker, her mother, Mattie Lou Hughes, and her brother, Timothy Ray Douglas.
