Gerrie Elizabeth (Kilby) Parker, 77, died Tuesday, December 11, 2018 at the Campbellsville Nursing and Rehab Center. She was born on April 20, 1941 to Herlene (McGaha) Kilby and the late Lendolph Kilby.
She was the cherished wife of, and proud homemaker to, Harlin Parker, who preceded her in death on December 13, 2011.
She took pleasure in her work as a babysitter and childcare provider at ABC Daycare, and carried that love and compassion all the days of her life. Mrs. Parker had made a profession of faith in Christ and was a member of Robinson Chapel Separate Baptist Church. Always artistic, she enjoyed creating colorful drawings and collecting teddy bears, but she was happiest and most content when she had a baby on her lap.
