Ms. Parker's performances in every role she played should be recognized as a talent we will never see again. Her acting in the movies "Caged" and "Lizzie" should have won her Oscars. She was a fantastic talent deserving of many awards. RIP BEAUTIFUL LADY

Eleanor Parker was a truly gifted actress. She was able to play a wide range of characters and was unafraid to shed the glamour that most others of her era refused to do. I personally class her as the best actress I have ever seen. She had a great life and you should be proud of the way she led that life. A great person sadly missed.

The Golden Age of Hollywood was brighter because of the presence of Eleanor Parker. She was a beautiful and gifted actress that took her craft seriously and never gave a bad performance which was testiment to her dedication to her art, but she was even more dedicated to her family making a conscience decision to keep her private life PRIVATE and never trading it to further her career or for fame. Ms. Parker was a classy lady and great actress that should have received the Oscar for her perfomances in Caged and Interrupted Melody; and the Academy should have recognized her body of work with the Lifetime Acheivement Award. True to her character though, Ms. Parker was not in it for the awards or accolaides; as a matter of fact she was quoted as saying she felt her greatest reward came when she was able to buy a fur coat for her Mother and a home for her parents. Classy lady through and through. In "The Naked Jungle" with Charlton Heston I believe she gave what could be considered the most erotic scene ever when Lanigen was putting bug juice on her character. Ms. Parker's sultry and satisfied look after Mr. Heston left her hut was just great. She was able to convey so much on the big screen with just a look, a smile or a wink. I doubt that we will ever be blessed with the likes of Ms. Parker ever again. My thoughts and prayers go out to her children, family, friends and devoted fans. Thank you Ms. Parker for the hundreds of hours of quality entertainment you have left for us and may you enjoy eternal peace. Shalom beautiful lady.
December 13, 2013
Sharon my thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. I agree with May. Please reconnect with us on facebook.

To the Parker family
I am so very sorry for your loss. I am only a teenager, but i can honestly say that I thought Eleanor Parker was one of the most beautiful women I had ever seen, and I always loved watching her movies. She was incredibly talented. RIP Eleanor
December 12, 2013
She was awesome and I loved her movies.
December 11, 2013
My condolences to your entire family. Your Mother was a beautiful woman. Sharon, I remember when I spent the night at your place in Hyde Park - I did not know your Mother was Eleanor Parker but I sure knew who Eleanor Parker was. When we walked into your kitchen and your Mother was at the sink (back to me) with her leopard silk robe and turned around - I almost fell over. Even in the morning she was gorgeous! She lived a wonderful life and I know you will miss her terribly.
I would love to get in touch with you.

No one is ever totally prepared for the death of a loved one.
People never get over a loss,they just get used to it.
Grief is said to be a necessary part of the healing process and of learning to adapt to the new situation.
At times when you are alone pour out your feelings to God who promises to comfort our hearts- 2 Thessalonians 2:16,17" moreover, May our Lord Jesus Christ himself and God our Father, who loves us and gave everlasting comfort and good hope by means of underserved kindness, comfort your hearts and make you firm in every good deed and word.

We each have a role to play here on earth. When the final act comes then we must cast aside our earthly Robe of Flesh. If we have accepted Christ as our savior then he will give us a new Robe, a Robe impervious to pain, sickness or the ravages of time. It will last an eternity and never grow old. Such is the power of the greatest producer of all....Lord Jesus Christ. I hope Eleanor finally receives her much over due Oscar along with many other rewards when she is greeted by the heavenly host for this one is worth far more than all those offered by man!
December 10, 2013
