Fair Haven native Shirley Parker “peacefully and gracefully rose to her reward of everlasting life, surrounded by love, on May 21.” She had turned 100 on Jan. 17.
With the support of the Red Bank Men’s Club, founded by prominent westside doctors in 1949, they got the street Drs. James Parker Blvd. named to memorialize the Parker family name in Red Bank. Shirley worked hard as a volunteer and a fundraiser for the Parker Family Health Clinic.
Shirley spent her final years as resident of The Chelsea at Shrewsbury, an assisted living facility where she was cared for by live-in health aides under the watchful eye of her good friend, Barbara Sheridan. Shirley enjoyed comforting, loving care to the end.
She leaves to mourn her passing, brother Harold Albert, Fair Haven, New Jersey.
