Obituary for Adrienne Blair Parker

Adrienne Blair Parker, 41, died on Sunday, May 26, 2019, at her home in Houston, TX, after a courageous and resolute battle with metastatic breast cancer. She was born in Houston, TX, on July 13, 1977 to her overjoyed parents, David and Blair Parker.

Adrienne is survived by her beloved son, William James Ruiz; mother, Rev. Blair Parker; sister, Stephanie Glenn Parker; grandmother, Elsie Butler; cherished uncles and aunts and beloved cousins. She was preceded in death by her “dear sweet dad,” David Parker;
and her grandparents, James Butler and Frank and Bertha Parker.

Adrienne graduated from I. H. Kempner High School in 1995 and attended Houston Community College. She had many interests and her great attention to detail and professionalism were assets in her varied areas of employment.

Adrienne was a life-long member of Bethany Christian Church where she was spiritually nurtured, made her Confession of Faith, was baptized, married, and dedicated her son. Her continuing relationship with Bethany members and their prayers offered on her behalf have been a source of comfort and have sustained her during her illness.

Adrienne’s passion was music! She began singing as a young child. She loved and listened to all types of music and developed an extensive playlist. Attending concerts – any concert – with her sister was always a high point. Until recently she also enjoyed singing at her favorite karaoke spot. She was an artist with an incredible eye for the use of color! Her favorite color was purple. She had a great sense of humor. She also enjoyed working jigsaw puzzles and had a gift for writing. She was an avid reader and enjoyed working with young children. She would tell you that her greatest accomplishment in life was giving birth to her son, William, and watching him grow into a capable, caring, kind and loving young man. He was the love of her life and her best friend!

Adrienne was a gentle soul and possessed an empathetic heart. She loved her family deeply. She cared for the marginalized and those who suffered from distress. The sudden death of her father continued to be a source of deep grief in her life. In addition to cancer she also suffered from depression, two diseases she did not ask for but which she faced with a determined grace, even when they caused her to feel overwhelmed and complicated her life. In her everyday battle with these diseases she inspired her family and others with her will to fight and her ability to continue to see and find joy in the beauty of the lives of others and in the wonders of nature. She learned to always be true to herself and never traded her authenticity for approval. Adrienne was unique and special, and she will be deeply missed by her family and by all whose lives she touched!

A graveside service of Christian burial will be held Saturday, June 1, at 11:00 a.m. at Forest Park Westheimer Cemetery. A memorial service celebrating Adrienne’s life will be held Sunday, June 2, at 2:00 p.m., at Bethany Christian Church, 3223 Westheimer Rd., Houston, TX, 77098 with a reception to follow. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in honor of Adrienne to Bethany Christian Church, or your choice of Breast Cancer or Mental Health organizations.
