Jacquelin Ann Parra


Devoted Wife, Mother, Grandmother, and Friend

Jacquelin Ann Parra, age 75, passed away peacefully in her sleep Friday, March 11, 2022, after a courageous battle with cancer.

Jacquelin “Jackie” was born in Dover, New Jersey, on July 8, 1946, to parents, John “Jack” and Virginia Dorothy Bradley. She had four brothers, Raymond, Paul, Peter, and Keith.

In 1963 she met and married her soul mate, Luis “Lou” Parra, who was the love of her life. Together they had an exciting life, blazing new trails across the country before being joined by two daughters.

She was a bookkeeper and office manager. After retirement, she enjoyed spending more time on her many interests and hobbies. She had a passion for quilting. She was also an avid reader and enjoyed watching movies. Her greatest joy in life was her family, especially her grandchildren.

She touched so many lives and was a beautiful, generous, intelligent, wonderful woman. She was the foundation and heart of her family. She will be dearly missed by all who knew and loved her.

Jackie is survived by her loving husband of 59 years, Lou Parra, her daughters, Maryann Parra and Jenni Welch, her son-in-law Roger Welch and her 3 grandchildren, Melody Parra, Allison Welch, and Preston Welch.

She was preceded in death by her father Jack, her mother Virginia and her brothers Peter and Raymond.

A memorial service will be held at the home of Lou and Jackie Parra. The date will be determined at a later time.

    I am so sorry for the loss Jackie. She was a great lady. 59 years married–you are a lucky guy Lou. I know it is very hard for all of you. Lou, I’m right down the street if you need or want anything. Love and Hugs to you all, Don Drewry

    Don, lucky yes and more so blessed. She was the inspiration and purpose to my life. She will always be with me and she’ll never be alone, it was my promise to her.
    I feel so empty.

    I’m so sorry for your loss. Sending prayers to you Lou for you and your family.

    It is impossible to describe the greatest woman who ever lived in a few short paragraphs. Mom made me the woman I am today. She was the heart and soul of our family and we will miss her more than any words can ever say.

"I highly recommend this funeral home and crematorium; when I had to make and pay for my brother’s arrangements across state lines, Evelyn Montonya, in particular, demonstrated both compassion and professionalism and made a very sad and difficult situation much easier. Many thanks."

"The unexpected passing of my husband was a very difficult and trying time for my boys and I. I had the good fortune of having Abel walk us thru this process. Working with him was such a weight off my shoulders. He was professional, so polite and helpful. The service was beautiful – never did I feel rushed or like just another customer. They gave me the time I needed and I appreciate that so much! Also Mr. Brooks took special care of my husband as he is a fellow mason. I would highly recommend working with Abel and North Dallas Funeral Home."

"As soon as the call was made to Mr. Wayne Baxter all of my brothers final needs were taken care of. They walked me through what to expect the timeline and even dealt with the cemetery and the grave diggers. I was a hot mess due to my brothers sudden and unexpected passing. The experience was seamless and made it easy for my brother’s friends and family to say their last goodbyes. They even had the size to accommodate such a large group that showed up . The package deals that they offered were cost-effective and didn’t break my bank account. They included extras and accommodations that other funeral homes charged extra for. All the staff was amazing including Mr. Don Dodd . I can not thank them enough for all their help."

Dear John,

It was such a nice pleasure to meet you, and what you had planned for my father just took my breath away. It was so special to hear you tell us how he would just come over to talk with you. I think it brought him much comfort. Thank you for putting that Air Force article of him on your website. I am going to have a replica made of the painting of his plane to give you.

Thank you again for all you have done to honor our dad.

Love, The Gillilands
