HUBBARD – Shirley M. Parm, 79, left this life at her residence on Monday April 5, 2021.
Ms. Parm was born on December 4, 1941 in Jamaica, West Indies, to Kenneth Hutchinson and Edna Ford.
During her marriage to Harold Parm, they adopted a son, Douglas. After a few years Harold passed away and later she also adopted her daughter Marva.
She was a seamstress who loved to sew and worked for Weatherbee Coats Inc. and Towel Supply Company for many years. She was excited about her job and her skills.
Not only did she think of herself, but she was very attentive to others, to the point where she sponsored many family members to the United States and would do anything for those in need. She was a no-nonsense person who could make you laugh with her stories, but when she looked at you like that, you knew exactly what time it was!
She was a proud, noble woman who was well put together. She had such impeccable taste in fashion and made many of her own clothes and apparel for others as well.
The past few years have been tough as Shirley struggles with her illnesses. It’s sad to see her go, but she’s no longer in pain and in a better place.
She goes to mourn her death, Douglas Parm and family, Marva (Ezell) Heriot, Hank Tomlin; Siblings, Doreen Dixon and Barrington Hutchinson; Nieces, Annmarie and family, Audrey and family; Nephews, Barry and Anthony; her sister-in-law; Patricia Hutchinson; and a host of other relatives and friends.
Her husband, Harold Parm, had died before her; and her parents, Steve Hutchinson and Dorett Hutchinson.
The memorial service will take place on Thursday, April 15, 2021 at 12:00 p.m. in the Alpha and Omega First Baptist Church. Friends can call church from 11am to 12pm Thursday.
Due to the pandemic, please follow CDC guidelines (6 feet rule) and practice social distancing. Please wear your masks when entering the church and make sure they cover your mouth and nose. Please do not linger so that the family can start the funeral punctually at 12 noon.
FD Mason Memorial Funeral Home, Inc. was honored to serve the family during this difficult hour of grief.
