To all our friends, far and wide in the world…We are sad to inform you that our incredible, proud and loving mother has passed away after a battle with only recently discovered cancer. She was surrounded by her closest family members and fought with great strength, leaving us with the assurance of her infinite joy of living and whatever adventure awaited her. As iconic as she was on screen, she was a mother and a grandmother still more extraordinary. We are grateful to the incredible team of doctors and nurses at Moffitt Cancer Center for their care. Our mother’s enthusiasm and passion for life, her children, grandchildren and her many pets, not to mention her eternal joy of creating, are unparalleled and leave us inspired to live life to the fullest just as it did. done her. We thank you for your love and prayers and ask that you respect our privacy during this difficult time. Love always, True and Lillie Parker
