Kenai resident Billie Marrion Parker died Monday, Aug. 4, 2003, at her home. She was 56.
A celebration of life will be held at the Moose Lodge in Kenai on a date yet to be determined.
Mrs. Parker was born Sept. 4, 1946, in Wichita Falls, Texas. She moved to Alaska in 1995, where she met Wesley G. Parker of Kenai. They married July 7, 1999, in Homer.
She was educated and worked most of her adult live as a certified nurse's aide in Stevensville, Texas, before moving to Alaska to be near her grandchildren.
Mrs. Parker was a loyal member of the Women of the Moose Chapter No. 1120 in Kenai. She and Wes spent much of their time in service of the community and always looked forward to fellowship with their friends and the special events that involved the children.
"Billie loved Alaska and looked forward to the summers when she and Wes fulfilled their dreams of traveling the state and fishing on the Kenai River. She was an avid dipnetter and enjoyed halibut fishing," her family said.
Mrs. Parker was preceded in death by her father, James Marion Helton, and mother, Faye Loraine Dalton of Stephenville, Texas.
She is survived by her husband, Wesley; his six children, Robert, David and Brian Parker, all of Wasilla, Lori McCanna and Kim Parker of The Dalles, Ore., and Wade Parker of Keiser, Ore. ; daughters, Starlia Klopman of Austin, Texas, and Sissy Huelsnitz of Minneapolis, Minn.; son-in-law, Paul Perry of Nikiski; and 21 grandchildren and one great-grandchild.
In lieu of flowers, contributions can be made to the Moose Heart children's fund or the Moose Haven elder fund though the local lodge in Kenai.
