Obituary: Parker, Janice Lynn

PARKER, Janice Lynn May 9, 1964 - March 30, 2015 Beloved wife, mother, daughter, and sister passed away in the early morning hours of March 30th, with her loving husband Jack by her bedside.

Janice was born in Pasco Washington on May 9th, 1964 to parents Raymond and Nola Casey.

Her family moved to Spokane in 1976 and she graduated from Central Valley High School in 1983.

Janice worked in the display department at Sears for several years and met John C. Parker Jr. (Jack) during that time.

They were married on March 28th, 1987 and Janice spent most of her married life as a homemaker for their children.

Janice will always be remembered for her quick wit and keen sense of humor.

She was fun and loved to tease her family.

She was a devoted mother and very loyal to her children.

She was always true to herself and faced her illness with great courage and dignity.

Our hearts are broken but we take comfort knowing that she is no longer in pain.

We will miss her laughter and beautiful smile.

Janice is survived by her husband of 38 years, Jack; sons Ryan and Joseph; daughter Brenna, all of Spokane; and stepson Joshua (Missy) of Lacey, WA.

She is also survived by her father, Raymond Casey and father-in-law John Parker Sr., both of Spokane; sisters Kathy Best (Ken) of Kennewick, WA and Teresa Wilhelm of Spokane; brothers Michael Casey (Kelly) of Kennewick, WA; and Patrick Casey of Spokane.

Her sisters-in-law are Connie Jacobs (Darby), Sherry Holdrige (Todd), Karyl Williams (Dennis) and brother-in-law is Kevan Parker (Barb), all of Spokane.

She had numerous aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces and nephews who also loved her very much.

Janice was preceded in death by her mother, Nola Casey; mother-in-law Vickie Parker, and sister-in-law Kelly Casey.

At Jan’s request, the family will observe a private remembrance and celebration of her life.
