Mary Parks Obituary
Mary Parks
Mary Jean Henry Parks lived a life, loved a lot and was loved to a greater degree.
She was born on a Sunday evening to Paul Kruger and Mary Walderns Henry in Maumelle on July 1, 1928, and was the second of six devoted siblings who would cut a wide path. She passed peacefully in Fort Smith on Friday night, Jan. 4. In between, she enlightened countless children in her 22 1/2-years of service in Fort Smith Public Schools.
Mary Jean is survived by many who miss her dearly, most notably the four grandchildren she doted on and beamed over. Her children, Dana Goins and husband Rick, Bruce Parks and wife Jennifer, along with grandchildren, Ryan Goins and wife Andrea, Taylor Goins, Mary Parks, and Joe Parks, will miss her dearly. Thank you, Gramsey. We were blessed by the wonder and childlike joy you brought to each day. In lieu of flowers or donations, we ask those who can to please spoil children or grandchildren for an entire day with penny candy and Dollar Store squirt guns.
A memorial service will be scheduled at a later date. Arrangements are entrusted to Edwards Funeral Home. Internet obituary and online guestbook are available at www.edwardsfuneralhome.com.
