RALEIGH –Emma Revels Parrish, 90, passed away July 7, 2018, in the SECU Hospice House in Smithfield surrounded by her family following a period of declining health. She had been an assisted-living resident at Gabriel Manor, Clayton. She was born Jan. 13, 1928, to Van Buren and Nancy Ann Williams Revels. Her siblings, Melvin Revels and Ruth R. Stephenson, preceded her in death. She was married for 29 years to Carl Glenwood Parrish, who passed away Jan. 7, 1976. She retired after working nearly 20 years for the State at Dorothea Dix Hospital in Raleigh. As an active member of Fellowship Baptist Church in Raleigh for more than 50 years, she faithfully served in the nursery and enjoyed many wonderful friendships with other church members. She enjoyed listening to Southern gospel music and family summer camping in the mountains when her children were young. She especially enjoyed cooking and baking for family and friends as she was a gifted hostess and prepared homemade food for countless showers at her Church.

Visitation will start at 1:00 pm on Wed., July 11, with funeral service following at 2:00 pm at Bryan-Lee Funeral Home, Garner.

    Belinda, Pam, and Terry,
    I am so sorry for your loss. Your mother was a sweet, kind, and great lady. I miss her now. I remember her, your dad, and you when your family lived just down the street from me. I would still talk with her on the phone after you moved to Greenbrier.
    Belinda, remember riding our new bikes at Christmas, across frozen Parkers Pond !? And hiding in the bathroom in first grade, running from a group of kids for some forgotten reason?
    Pam, I remember you when you came along. I thought of you as a smaller version of pretty Belinda
    Terry, my mother and I always treasured your visits when you became a young man. You and I would sometimes talk about cars. I remember you as a toddler, licking cake batter off the mixer’s (turned off and removed !) blades.
    Love and good thoughts to you all.
    John Sullivan
