Verna (nee Jack) Parry
PARRY Verna (nee Jack) - A resident of Chatham died peacefully Saturday January 20, 2007 at the Chatham Kent Health Alliance Public General Campus. Our mother was born on October 25, 1916 and grew up in Dover Township just north of Chatham, Ontario. She was born the middle child between twins Gordon & Garnet (both deceased) and her younger sister Helen (Gagner) and spent most of her life in the Chatham area. She met our father, Robert, and they were married in December 1939. Rob & Verna had a most loving and caring marriage that they enjoyed until our father's death in 1975. Their relationship taught all of us the meaning of commitment and love. Our affection and admiration for her is shared by our spouses (John, Jane, Lyn and Jean-Louis), our children (Amy & Julie, Andrea, Erica, Trevor & Kyle, and Robert & Adam) and grandchildren (Jack, Luke, Zara & Isaac). Our mother grew to know and accept all that life had to offer and she applied her curiosity, charm and determination to life's challenges. She had many friends and was actively involved in her community. As a volunteer with the Flora Campbell Auxiliary and May Court Club of Chatham and as the first Director of Discharge Planning at the former Chatham Public General Hospital, she was a tireless advocate for services that support the independence of others in the community. Her spirit and character set an unfailing example for her family and those who knew her. By us, she will be remembered as a gracious, strong and yet gentle person. Our family is especially grateful to Cathy & Al, Kelly, Kym, Teri-Lyn, Cheryl, Lena, Sheila, Bev and the Community Care Access Centre whose care and support made it possible for her to remain in her home. The family will receive visitors Thursday January 25, 2007 from 7:00 - 9:00 p.m. at the BOWMAN FUNERAL HOME, 4 Victoria Ave., Chatham (519-352-2390).
