Geraldine Arwilla  Parrish
Geraldine Arwilla Stiles Parrish, 82, passed away at the Levine & Dickson Hospice near Charlotte, NC on April 18, 2018. She was the 6th of 7 children born at home on Route 1, Shinnston, WV to her late parents, Willie Edgar Stiles and Elsie Marie Fortney Stiles.

She was preceded in death in April 2017 by her husband of 61 years, Edgar David Parrish. One child, Linda Ann Parrish Klein, of Indian Land, SC, survives her.

Geraldine’s remaining family members include: one of nine children, Gladys Ruth Stiles Duffield of Akron, OH; sisters-in-law: Nancy Parrish (Elwood) Sandy and Carol Parrish (Bernie) Pierce both of Enterprise, WV; Bobbie Jane Conaway (Charles “Pete”) Parrish of Shinnston, WV; Joyce Brookover (Paul) Parrish of Clarksburg, WV; Vicki Parrish (Butch) Chrislip of Idamay, Doris Jean Kester (Ed) Stiles of Clarksburg, WV and Marlene (2nd wife of Victor “Vic” Parrish) of New Mexico.

Brothers-in-law include: Daniel “Danny” Selkirk Parrish of Fullerton, CA and John Michael “Mike” (Lucy) Parrish of Clarksburg, WV. Many nieces and nephews also survive her.

She was preceded in death by 8 siblings:

She was also preceded in death by sister-in-law Shirley Parrish (Tony) Roberts, and Wanda Kay Bussy (1st wife of Victor “Vic” Parrish).

Geraldine graduated from Shinnston High School in 1954 and spent most of her working years at Westinghouse/Philips Lighting.

Geraldine, a.k.a. “Billie” and “Arwilla”, was a loving and dedicated wife and mother. She laughed easily, never met a stranger and was extremely hard working, kind-hearted and generous especially with her cooking and baking.

A living memorial and tribute will be held at the Harmer Funeral Home in Shinnston, WV on Sunday, May 20, 2018 from 2 PM to 4 PM.

Per her wishes, there will be no burial event and in lieu of flowers, kindly make a donation to: Levine & Dickson Hospice House at Southminster, P. O. Box 470408, Charlotte, NC or via website: https://hpccr.thankyou4caring.org/ or to any local Hospice and Palliative Care Facility.
