PARKER, Alexandra (nee Gunn)
Alex died on January 20, 2013 at the age of 82. Skilled and compassionate care by physicians of the Community Palliative Care Network and the staff of Billings Lodge enabled her to die in the peace of her home. She was the beloved wife of the late Harry Parker. Her sons, Barry, Shane and Michael, and her daughters-in-law and seven grandchildren gave her great joy. Alex was a spirited Irish woman who brought friendly cheer to others. Her life will be celebrated at 1:30 p.m. on Friday, January 25 in the Church of the Resurrection at 3191 Riverside Drive in Ottawa. Please consider a memorial donation to the Primate's World Relief and Development Fund (www.pwrdf.org).
