Patricia Stephenson Parker of Sheffield, Alabama, passed away Monday, March 9, 2015. Visitation will be from 10:00 to 11:00 a.m. Friday, March 13, at First Presbyterian Church, Tuscumbia, with funeral services at 11:00 a.m., Dr. Randy Thompson officiating. Interment will follow at Cullman City Cemetery.

Survivors include her son, Scott David Parker; sister, Sherrie (Randall) Reese; brother-in-law, Dr. Sam (Betty) Parker; nephews, Lance (Melissa) Reese, Stephen (Annette) Parker; great-nieces, Laine and Loren Reese; and a host of aunts and cousins.

Preceding her in death were her husband, Jerry L. Parker; parents, T.D. and Bernice Cleghorn Stephenson; and sister, Nona Stephenson Wright.

She was born in Winston County, Alabama, and the family moved to Cullman when she was a teenager. Patricia, affectionately called Pat, graduated from Cullman High School. Following her high school graduation, she attended Sacred Heart College of Cullman, and was later employed by Security Mutual Financial Corporation in Cullman. While there, she met her husband. Following their marriage, they moved to Sheffield, Alabama, where she was employed with the Board of Education of Florence, Alabama, until retirement. She was a member of the First Presbyterian Church, Tuscumbia, Alabama, and was a loyal member of the Travelers Sunday School class. This extraordinary woman could not be justly described in any language. Her ears never tired of listening, her heart never weary of caring. Her life was the epitome of selflessness. Pat was truly a people person with a heart of gold. She was a loving wife and mother and will be truly missed.
Pallbearers are Scott Dawsey, Ronnie Goss, Bill Lacey, Tommy Crosslin, Clay Garrett, and Jimmy Barnett

In lieu of flowers, please consider memorials to the First Presbyterian Church of Tuscumbia, Alabama.
