  1. To the Parker family, please accept my sincere regrets and loss over the passing of your dear wife, mother, and grandmother. Having Gretchen and Greg as Captains of our High School Swim Teams was a highlight of my coaching career. Knowing your mother was willing to help at a moments notice was something I could always count on. I know she was and is extremely proud of her family. My prayers are with you all.

  2. Gretchen, Kent, Catelyn and the entire Parker family: we were so sorry to hear about your mom. I remember how close you were to your parents and hope that you always will be. Sending lots of love and prayers to you and your family, Heidi, Erik, Hannah, Jordan and Emma Feig

There will be an obituary for her shortly on our webpage (alumnae/mtholyoke.edu/1958 – click on .Welcome.. Warmly, JoanHeyman Rosen
