Obituary for Venessa Parker

PARKER, Venessa – Passed away suddenly in London on Monday, January 4, 2021 from a blood clot in her lung, Venessa “Vinny” Rose Ruby Parker at the age of 26.

Dear daughter of Ruby Parker and granddaughter of Rose Parker and the late John Parker. She will be forever loved and missed by her beloved partner Jessie Goss of London. Sister and best friend of Luann Parker of Woodstock. Dear sister of Shawn Neave; his son Teegan, and Kathy-Rose Parker both of Woodstock. Venessa will be sadly missed by her aunt Gloria Parker of Woodstock, Dave and Sherri Goss of London as well as Jessie’s siblings and friends.

Venessa was always a caregiver to everyone that was in her life and she will be forever remembered by many, many friends, family and extended family around the world. She had a passion and love for theatre and arts and was a beautiful singer. She had a huge, bright and shining personality and was always warm yet strong and courageous and held a strong sense of confidence, that you felt even if you had only known her for a few minutes. She had “Moms and Dads” everywhere. Venessa will forever be remembered and loved.

Cremation has taken place and there will be a celebration of life held at a future date for everyone to celebrate her beautiful spirit. In honor of Venessa’s life, donations can be made to Theatre Woodstock or the Heart and Stroke Foundation and would be gratefully appreciated.

Arrangements have been entrusted to the SMITH-LeROY FUNERAL HOME, 69 Wellington St. North, Woodstock, On (519-537-3611). Personal condolences may be sent at
