Rose Ann Parker Smith, 63, of Corbin, Kentucky, passed from this life to her Heavenly home on March 17, 2024.

Born September 7, 1960, in Hamilton, Ohio, she was the daughter of the late Roland Ray Parker, Sr., and Marilyn Jewell Saylor Felts who survives

She graduated from Lynn Camp High School in 1978.  She was voted “Cutest” in her senior class superlatives.  Rose was a beauty on the outside, but, most importantly, on the inside.

Rose was an incredible woman, always helping others.   She had a fierce love for her family and friends.  Her most special relationship, however, was with her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

In addition to her father, Rose was preceded in death by her brothers, Roland Ray Parker, Jr., and Michael Lee Phillips; her baby sister, Cara Elizabeth Parulekar; her grandparents: Nathan and Cecil Parker and Rev. Lee and Rose France.

She is survived by her mother and step-father, Tom Felts of Corbin; her sister, Tammy Russell (Phillip) of Corbin; her brother, David Nathan Parker of Corbin; her aunt, Mildred Ann Moore of Corbin; her uncles: Donald Ray Saylor of Seminole, Florida, and Claude Parker of Middlesboro, Kentucky.

She was an amazing mother. She is survived by her only child, Suzanne Smith Eaton and husband Rob; her grandbabies: Mariah Cecilia Parker, Shyanne Jewell Parker, and Sarah Rose Eaton; and by her friend and former husband, Terry Wayne Smith, along with her best furry friend, Mr. Milo. Also surviving are several nieces, nephews, other relatives, and friends.

Rose was dearly loved and will be deeply missed.

Funeral services will be held at 4:00 P.M. Thursday, March 21, 2024, in the Hart Funeral Home Chapel with Bobby Joe Eaton and David Johnson officiating.  Burial will follow in Pine Hill Cemetery with Phillip Anthony Russell, J.D. Smith, Adam Smith, Austin Smith, Phil Russell, and Rick Smith serving as pallbearers and Eddie Smith as honorary pallbearer.

The family will receive friends from 1 – 4 P.M. Thursday at Hart Funeral Home, located at 1011 Master Street Corbin, KY 40701.

    We always wanted to go view the Moonbow together. Now, you will be surrounded by the most beautiful, Pearly Gates of Heaven. Your enthusiasm and love will be missed, as well as your love and knowledge of good music.

    Rose smile and beauty will surely be missed. If she could she would tell us all to come home and meet her savior . So she would tell us make sure we know the LORD JESUS CHRIST So we too could come and see her again with all of her love because that was the kind of person she was she loved every body.
