Hammond, Louisiana and formerly of Canton - Virginia Parker Clark, was welcomed into the Kingdom of Heaven late Saturday afternoon, September 10, 2022. She left this world peacefully in her Louisiana home, surrounded by her family.
She was reunited with the love of her life and husband of fifty-five years, Paul; her mother and father, Alvin “Fat” and Vinnie Slatton Parker; and her beautiful “Sister,” Rebecca Parker Thompson.
