Marjorie Jean Parrish

Feb 13 1924 - Aug 29 2007

Marjorie A. Parrish, age 84, of San Marcos, Texas, passed away August 29, 2007 in Frisco, Texas. She was born in Port Arthur, Texas. She can be remembered as one who adjusted beautifully to life in 16 different cities to keep up with her husband Randy’s civilian and military moves. Margie attended N.T.A.C, now the University of Texas at Arlington. There she and her future husband Randy fell in love. WW II interrupted their togetherness, and in June 1943, Randy joined the Marines. They were married on April 1, 1945 while Randy was on leave from the Marines. Soon, he returned to the Marines in the Pacific theater in preparation for the invasion of Japan. The war ended, but rejoining her husband had to wait several months while his unit took part in the occupation of Japan. About five years later, Margie again had to manage by herself. Randy got called back to the Marines for combat assignment in Korea. When that conflict ended, Randy went back to work for Humble Oil, which resulted in many moves. She was an efficient homemaker, and when she needed to work, she could always find employment whether selling or office work. She is survived by her loving husband Randall J. Parrish of Plano, Texas; sister, Betty Bartlett, of San Francisco, California; brother, Robert P. Adams of Victoria, Texas; cousins, Danny Danby and his wife Catherine of Plano, Texas; numerous nieces, nephews, great-nieces, and great-nephews. A Funeral Service will be held at Turrentine-Jackson-Morrow Chapel in Frisco, Texas on Sunday, September 2, 2007 at 2:00 AM with Doug Miller officiating. Internment will be follow at the Ridgeview West Cemetery with Bill Adams, Bobby Adams, Sjoerd Adams, Dennis Adams, Paul Adams, and Steve Adams as Pallbearers and Robert P. Adams as Honorary Pallbearer. Family and friends are invited to the funeral home in Frisco at their convenience on Saturday to pay their respects and to sign the register book. The family will receive friends during a visitation on Saturday evening beginning at 6:00 PM. In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to the First United Methodist Church of Frisco Building Fund.
