Glenda Parrish Obituary

Glenda Yvonne Parrish, 64, of Spurger passed away peacefully surrounded by her loved ones on February 27, 2024.

Born April 28, 1959 in Pensacola, Florida to Frank and Mary Ann Hardeman, she lived in Spurger for many years.  Glenda was a natural caregiver who loved to show her motherly love to everyone she met.  A sassy gardener, she was adventurous and enjoyed having fun everywhere she went.  She once entered a tamale eating contest coming in a close second to the past champion from the year before.   She loved her family with her whole heart and each one knew by her devotion to them.

Her strong faith in her Lord and Savior is what kept her fighting through all her illness.  She knew her Lord had a great plan for her life and she lived it every day.  She was a member of the First Baptist Church in Spurger.  When she could not go to church, the church came to her singing and sharing the good news of the gospel.  She was truly loved. 

Glenda was preceded in death by her father, Frank Bruce Hardeman.

She is survived by her loving husband of 38 years, Benjamin Parrish; mother, Mary Ann Hardeman of Pensacola, FL; daughters, Michelle Longsworth and husband, Michael of Hillister,  Catherine Parrish of Hillister and Angela Rainwater of Austin; sons, Ben Michael Parrish and wife, Mareasa of Coon Rapids, MN, Mark Rainwater and wife, Jessy of Fort Worth and Daryl Parrish of Crestview, FL; grandchildren, Blaze, Colton, Aria, Logan, Adeline, Benny, Zoey and Toby; sister, Cathy Murphy and husband, Carl of Pensacola, FL; special cousin, Carol Mixon of Deer Park and a host of other family members and friends.

Funeral service will be held Friday, March 1, 2024, at 11 am at the First Baptist Church in Spurger with Brother Cole Clark officiating.  Visitation will be held Friday at the church from 10 am until 11 am.  A graveside service will be held Friday, March 1, 2024, at 3 pm at the Runnels Cemetery in Broaddus, Texas.
