Gwedolyn Mabelle Parks


Gwendolyn Mabelle Parks of Coffeyville, Kansas passed away at the age of 87 at CRMC in Coffeyville on April 13, 2019.

 

Emmett and Marie (Barnhart) McGuire received a blessing, of a daughter from the Lord on May 5, 1931 when Gwen was born in Cherryvale, Kansas. Gwen was surrounded by her siblings, Larry, Bob, Gerald, Ted, Karen, Marilyn, Bonita and Kay growing up in Cherryvale where together they attended a small rural school. Gwen graduated from Cherryvale High School in 1949. Soon after graduation she married, Lawrence Gene Parks on August 6, 1949. Together they made their home in Cherryvale raising their two boys. In 1974 the couple moved to Coffeyville.

 

Gwen always sets about her work vigorously, extended her arms to help everyone she met. She had a heartwarming smile and a gentle spirit that provided comfort and warmth. Her servant's heart enjoyed teaching children's Sunday school class and helping people. Gwen's greatest down fall, was that she didn't accept help well, she would rather give it than receive it. Her husband had full confidence in her, and valued her dedication to him and in raising their boys. That was what she considered to be the most important job of her lifetime. She was also employed outside the home, for a number of years she worked at the Lee garment factory in Cherryvale. Changing employers she started working for Vallis Wngroff Business Forms Inc., in Cherryvale in the plate press room manufacturing checks for area banks. After retirement, she could often be found visiting friends, family and church members in the hospital or nursing homes. If volunteering could have been a career she would have been considered a lifetime employee. She was member of the First Southern Baptist Church in Coffeyville.

 

Gwen's life was worth far more than rubies to her two sons, Roger Parks and wife Edna, and Stephen Parks; and her grandchildren, Ryan Parks his wife Beth, Stacy and her husband Ryan Hightower, and 6 great-grandchildren; brothers, Larry McGuire, Gerald McGuire and wife Lavern; sister's, Karen Lassman, Marilyn and husband Dan Dawson; sister-in-law, Myrna McGuire; brother-in-law, Chet Mishler.

 

In addition to her husband and parents, Gwen was preceded in death by her brothers, Bob and Ted McGuire, sisters, Bonita Mishler and Kay Williams.

During these “scrabble battle” the scrabble dictionary was put to good use. Myrna loved her family, keeping a clean house, doing for others, and she loved her church family.
