Obituary for Bettie Louise Parrish
Bettie Louise Parrish, age 82, passed away at Spectrum Butterworth on Saturday, February 1, 2020 after a courageous battle with cancer. She was born in Newport, Tennessee on March 27, 1937, the youngest of 9 children, and moved to Michigan in the 60’s. She loved to travel in her younger years and also enjoyed shopping and loved to cook. But mostly Bettie loved her family and especially all her grandbabies. She will be remembered by them for her feisty, sometimes stubborn personality, and they will greatly miss the all-around beautiful lady she was.
Bettie is survived by her son, Robert Ledford; daughters, Elizabeth Samons and Karen Travis; grandchildren, Robert Ledford, Jr., Kimberly Ledford, Robert Samons, Jessica Barker and Tara Agrella; 9 great grandchildren and 8 great great grandchildren. She was preceded in death by her parents and all 8 of her siblings.
A memorial service for Bettie is being planned in March. Details will be added as soon as available. Anyone wishing to make a donation in Bettie’s memory may do so to the American Cancer Society at www.donate3.cancer.org.
