WAYNESVILLE — Sandra “Barefoot” Gail Parks, 53, a special lady that was loved by everyone, passed away Thursday, June 27, 2019.
Sandra was born April 2, 1966, to the late Charles Parks and the late Sue Ledford Parks. She was a lifelong resident of Haywood County and had been employed as a certified nursing assistant, working at several nursing homes throughout the area and also Haywood Lodge in Waynesville.
Sandra’s faith led her to attend Full Gospel Holiness Church. Her delightful personality was a joy to everyone and her time with her “fur baby” dogs — Angel, Halo and Bella were treasured by Sandra. She loved her family deeply and her grandchildren were the light of her life.
In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her brother, Charles “Bo” Parks and her sister, Mildred English.
She is survived by her son, Keith Parks and Hailey of Waynesville; grandchildren, Logan, Tanner and Dawson; her sisters, Shirley Franklin and Bill of Fuquay Varina, Kathy Owen and Michael of Waynesville and Judy Price and Steve of Tennessee; eight nieces and nephews and many friends.
A celebration of life service for Sandra will be held at 2 p.m. Tuesday, July 2, at Full Gospel Holiness Church. Pastor Martha Whitley will be officiating. The family will be receiving friends at the church one hour prior to the service.
Memorials may be made in Sandra’s memory to Brother Wolf Animal Rescue, 31 Glendale Ave. Asheville, NC 28803.
