Nancy will be dearly missed by all who knew her.

In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her loving husband, William X. Parker, Jr.; son, George Parker; and siblings, Phil Dragotto, Lala Matranga, Gloria Martinez, Tina Mossorofo, Sonny Mossorofo, and Georgie Mossorofo.

  • I met Nancy because her beautiful grand daughter, Caitlyn, is my son’s girlfriend. She was always so kind, fun and generous. She and Caitlyn had such a strong bond and the fact that they looked so much alike made it even sweeter. I know how much she meant to her whole family, and I consider myself lucky to have been apart of her world. God bless her family and friends during this difficult time.

  • May God bless you and your family during this fragile time. Nancy was a loving woman and really loved her children.

  • Sending our love and condolences to Nancy’s family. We knew Nancy through her granddaughter Caitlyn. Caitlyn has been in a relationship with our grandson for six years. If anyone knows Caitlyn they understand the very close friendship and bond those two shared. Caitlyn having lost her father at such an impressionable age drew closer to her grandmother. Even in high school when most teens lose interest in older relatives she kept us all entertained with stories of the time spent with Nancy. They joked, teased and she confided in her. Many nights we dropped Caitlyn off at her grandmother’s house . That strong bond continued on after high school. My grandson Liam admired Nancy and felt comfortable calling her grams. On all occasions she was so up and full of life. She seemed ageless. The last time we saw her was at her surprise 80th birthday thrown by her sons. It was a beautiful event and she was Queen for the day. The world has lost a model role but heaven will welcome her humor and spirit. May her soul Rest In Peace.

  • Dearest Billy, Michael and Family,
    I have such fond memories of your mom (and family) during our time at Holy Spirit. May all of the love, strong faith and comfort that she has showered upon others help comfort you with her transition to Heaven. Now you have 3 angels! May she rest peacefully with your father and George. Sending love, peace and prayers to all of you – especially during this difficult time.

  • We are so sorry to hear this. We loved spending time with your family at your home enjoying barbeques and parties; also at Holy Spirit hanging out while our parents worked at many functions. My children spent time at your mom’s home also. My mom (Marie Carroll) brought them to swim in her pool many times when they were younger. I will miss her. She was always so kind and asked how we were all doing. Keeping all of you in our thoughts and prayers.

  • Bill and family I send my sincere condolences in the passing of your mother, Nancy. As the brother of Bill’s wife, Dottie, I would see Mrs Parker at times and after our father passed she would always ask about me and to make sure I was not alone during the holidays.
