July 26, 1929 - February 15, 2021
Clara Lorraine (Powell) Parker, 91, of Traverse City went to be with the Lord on February 15, 2021. Born on July 26, 1929 in Cadillac, Michigan, to William H. Jennett and Flora (Gee) Jennett, she spent her life volunteering her time and talents to those in need. As a long-time member of the Traverse Bay United Methodist Church (formerly Asbury), she volunteered for over 20 years at Christmas Bazaars, organizing Rummage sales, keeping the Church kitchen clean and setting up for Thursday night suppers. Whether in the church kitchen or library, she prepared the space and taught Sunday school for over 10 years so children could continue to learn. She led a group of volunteers who did mending on a monthly basis for Munson Medical Care Facility and the Birchwood Nursing Home. For over fifty years, she spent countless hours sewing thousands of hospital gowns, lap robes, baby blankets and various items for the Munson Medical Center and Hospice House. She lived her life in the light through service to others and was fully giving of herself spiritually to the community, her presence will be greatly missed. She is survived by her brothers William and James Jennett, her children, Randy Powell, Nancy Hubert, Jon Powell, Judi Guith and Karen Husband, her 12 grandchildren, and 15 great-grandchildren. She was preceded in death by her first husband Robert Powell, her second husband Charles Parker, her sisters Janey Marie Jennett and Kitty Powell, brother Dick Jennett and her daughter Sheryl Dunham. As current circumstances prevent traditional services, please sing or recite a favorite hymn or bible verse in her memory. In lieu of flowers please make donations to Munson Hospice House or the Traverse Bay United Methodist Church, Traverse City, MI.
