Obituary for Josephine Parker

December 3, 1924 - November 6, 2018
Indianapolis, Indiana | Age 93


Beloved mother, "granny", aunt, and friend passed away on November 6, 2018 at the age of 93. Josephine was born on December 3, 1924 in Bloomington, IL to Skylar Vawter and Florence Turnam. She was one of seven siblings; John, Maxine, David, Robert, Paul and Patricia.
She attended Howe High School and began working for RCA during WWII, retiring in the mid 80's.
Josephine's greatest joy came from spending time with her family. She will be remembered for her kindness and generosity by those who knew and loved her. She enjoyed reading, watching TV, and watching "her" Colts.

She is survived by her daughter; Nancy (Kirkham) Allen, grandchildren, Monica Whitehead, (Todd), Melissa Lutgring; and Michelle Hammons, great-grandchildren, Brittany Gray (Austin), Tyler Ferguson (Casey), Brooke Lutgring, Kathryn Ferguson, Briana Lutgring, Brandon Lutgring, and Aaron Hook. Josephine was preceded in death by her husband, Everett (Ed) Parker.
The family wishes to extend their deepest gratitude to the staff at Arlington Place Health for her care and companionship over the years.
Visitation will be from 11 a.m. – 1 p.m. on Monday November 12, with a short service after celebrating Granny Jo's life.
