BRAZIL, IN: Marilyn Sue Parker, 81 of Brazil IN and Winter Garden FL, passed away June 6, 2015 in Paris Health Care Center following two months of failing health.

Combined Memorial Services for Marilyn Sue and Edward Wayne Parker (Nov. 30. 2010) will be conducted Saturday June 13, 2015, at 3:00 pm at Pulliam Funeral Home in Robinson, IL.

Edward “Wayne” Parker was born Dec. 23, 1933 in Robinson, the son of Benjamin Harrison Parker and Cora Emmaline (Hanson) Parker. Marilyn "Sue" (Martin) Parker was born Oct. 9, 1933 in Robinson too and was the daughter of Hubert and Esther (Reedy) Martin.  Both attended school in Robinson becoming high school sweethearts and decided to share the rest of their lives together.  At the time of Wayne's passing in 2010 this union was just one month shy of 55 wonderful years.

Wayne and Sue raised three sons: Bradley Wayne of Marshall IL, Martin Wesley of Olney IL, and Richard Scott of Brazil IN, all of whom survive. In addition to their three sons, Wayne and Sue are survived by a daughter-in-law, Anita (Rick) Parker of Brazil and grandchildren Keith, Ben and Leah Parker, all of Brazil IN.  Additionally surviving is Wayne's sister and her husband, Elleanor and Robert Laswell of Robinson: a niece Lynn Johnson: nephews Kelly Martin and Eric Laswell: a sister-in-law Pat Martin: and several great grandchildren.

Wayne and Sue were preceded in death by their parents, a step-father Charles McIntosh, Sue's brother Jimmy Martin, and a nephew Dick Martin.

Wayne was an educator his entire life molding the lives of hundreds of young men and women at the high school level. In addition to classroom studies, Wayne coached basketball, football, and golf and finished his career as dean of boys.
Sue dedicated her life to raising her three sons, and also worked part time as a legal secretary and a substitute elementary school teacher.

Both were very devoted to their church spending many hours in the Lord’s service via the Ocoee Christian Church in Ocoee, FL.

Combined Memorial and Burial Services will be conducted Saturday, June 13, 2015, at 3:00 pm at Pulliam Funeral Home in Robinson, IL with Rev. Tom Akers officiating.  Interment of their cremated remains will immediately follow the memorial services in Robinson New Cemetery. A time of visitation and sharing of memories will be held prior to memorial services from 2:00pm - 3:00pm.  The family requests that in lieu of flowers, memorial contributions be made to the Alzheimer’s Foundation with envelopes available at the funeral home.

Brad, Wes,and Rick..........We are sorry for your loss. It is hard to lose a mom and dad. Unfortunately we will not be able to attend the funeral because of Doris' job. Please know we are there in Spirit.

Brad, Wes, and Rick, our thoughts and prayers are with you during this time of loss. Even though dying is part of living-there is a vacuum created within our hearts with the passing of our parents. Your parents were very special to Craig and I. We loved having them with us for Thanksgiving and Christmas, they were so much fun. They were very special people and like you I wish I could see them one more time. We love you all.

I think that is so appropriate that you have a service for both Wayne and Sue. They were totally devoted to each other. We were so glad to get to know them at Ocoee Christian Church. Alan enjoyed playing golf with Wayne and I enjoyed singing with Sue. Wish we could have been there for the service but know it was special. Our prayers are with you.
