Obituary for Anna Elizabeth Parker Rawls

Anna Elizabeth Parker Rawls, daughter of the late Charles Robert Parker, Sr. and Mary Catherine Victor Parker, entered eternal rest November 7, 2017. She was preceded in death by her beloved John Harvey Ayers, February 27, 2017, and by a brother Charlie Robert Parker, Jr. After the death of her mother she was reared by her cousin, Elizabeth “Lizzie” Anderson.
A native of Millersburg (Bourbon County), KY, she was educated in the Millersburg Elementary School and graduated from Paris Western High School. She was a lifelong member of Woods Chapel CME Church in Millersburg where she annually organized Family and Friends Day until her health failed.
She was involved in domestic employment and worked for several families in Bourbon and Nicholas Counties. One such family was the Hadden/Linville family which developed into such a family bond that continued until her demise. They were unselfish in the sharing of their time and resources for her convenience and comfort. Linda was that sister she never had.
Anna leaves her children Deborah Rawls (Vincent) Hart of Charlotte, NC, and Gary E. “Buddy” (Angenise) Rawls of Cincinnati, OH to cherish her memories, her grandchildren - Donald Rawls, Damon Jones, Lorinda Rawls, Elizabeth Rawls, Zak Rawls, Jayla Rawls, Isabelle Rawls, and Gary Rawls, Jr.- and great grandchildren, Jobe, Ryder, Mason, Kyson, Sania, Josia and Eri’Nesha . Special family include Matriarch Delphia Higgins Baker and cousin Marion P. Rogers and The Linville family, Dr. Linda Linville, Dr. Lisa Woody, and Darren Linville who remained close to her throughout the life she shared with John Ayers.
