Jennie M. Parker

CHESTER — Jennie Madeline Parker passed away at the age of 93, surrounded by her two children, on the evening of Jan. 16, 2018. Jennie was born on July 13, 1924 in Patchougue, Long Island, New York. She enjoyed the outdoors, flowers, nature and painting. She is well known for her exceptional fall and winter scenes depicting whitetail deer, covered bridges and iconic Vermont landscapes.

Jennie always loved being with her family, friends and beloved pets.

She was born to and predeceased by her mother, Selma Nisula Noor, and father, John Noor.

Her surviving brothers are George Noor and his wife Gerry of Springfield, Vermont, and Kenneth Noor and his wife Ginny of Montpelier, Vermont. She was predeceased by her brother, John "Norman" Noor, and sisters Doris Noor, Viola Noor and Vivian Lorenzo.

She was married to Reau "Tink" A. Parker, who predeceased her on Jan. 11, 1999. Throughout their years together they could be found bantering over the age-old rivalry between the Red Sox and Yankees.

She is survived by her two children, daughter Renee Amsden and her husband Roy of Chester, Vermont, and Gary Parker and his wife Lu of Chester; grandchildren, Jessica Corliss of Chester, Jason Amsden of Danby, Vermont, Shannon Parker of Chester, and Hannah Parker-Kingsbury of Chester; great-grandchildren, Corey, Keith and Cameron Corliss of Chester, Dahlia and Makaylah Kingsbury of Chester, and Daiton and Jasonna Amsden of Danby; and her niece Emily Noor-Hoffman of Waterbury Center, Vermont.

It is difficult to know she is gone, but we take comfort in knowing she no longer suffers.

A celebration of life will be announced at a later date.
