Robin Elizabeth Parker

50, Columbia

Funeral services were held at 1 p.m. on Tuesday, June 25, 2019, at Society Hill Baptist Church for our beloved Robin Elizabeth Parker, 50, who passed away on Saturday, June 22 surrounded by family and friends. Burial followed in Society Hill Baptist Church Cemetery. Bro. Kenny Peavey and Bro. Wade Lott officiated at the services. Visitation was held from 5 p.m. until 9 p.m. on Monday, June 24 at Hathorn Funeral Home.

She was born on July 28, 1968, in Prentiss.  She raised two daughters with her husband of 31 years, Wes Parker.

Her passion for creativity touched everyone who knew or met her. She thought anything could be fixed with a little Shoe-Goo.  She only stood at five feet tall but her shadow was a mile long and her smile was more than enough to light up any room. She was the original junk gypsy with an ability to turn nothing into something with her ever-present collection of tools. Her creative ability was fueled by her love of coffee. There wasn’t a safe Starbucks between home and her destination. We have been comforted by countless stories from people all over of how she impacted their lives. 

She was preceded in death by her mother, Sonja Williamson Kroner.

Survivors include her husband, Wes Parker of Columbia; father, John Kroner (Kathy) of Columbia; two daughters, Savannah Parker of Columbia and Leslie Parker of Bellevue; brother, Johnny Kroner (Tara) of Foxworth; sister, Mary Anne Brister (Chip) of Brookhaven; one granddaughter, Cora Montague of Bellevue, and father/mother-in-law, Harlon Parker (Judine) of Columbia.

Pallbearers were Blake Robbins, Justin Robbins, Travis Culpepper, Frank Vice, Brady Hedgepeth and Nicolas Kroner.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Asbury Hospice House.
