Jan was born on Easter Sunday, April 6, 1947 in Tulsa, OK to the late Ralph Parrish, Jr. and Mildred Brown Aubrey Parrish.
Jan loved to be in the kitchen and was a wonderful cook. She delighted in having huge family gatherings on the holidays. Her family and friends gave her special joy, each treasuring their special moments with her. She was very close to her mother whom she took care of for several years.
Jan was a devoted animal lover and loved riding horses with her husband, Stephen, when she found time in her busy day. She was a best friend to her children and uncommonly generous to others. She loved to crochet and knit.
In addition to her parents, Jan was preceded in death by her mother-in-law, Janie Satterfield and a fur baby she loved dearly, Fred.
Left to cherish her memory is her husband, Stephen; sons Ron Casteel and wife Connie; Randall Hattox and his wife Rachael; one daughter Kimberly Hattox; two sisters, Teresa Aubrey and Gloria Hammond and husband, Karl; nephew Anthony Ross and wife Kimberly, nephew Joshua Ross and wife Jenny, niece Lisa Eddy and husband Eric; special sister-in-law, Margaret Skidmore and her late husband Ken; cousins Michael Adams and Steve Adams and wife; and special friend Mysteri David and family; a fur baby named Buttons; and many many friends.
She will be greatly missed but leaves each of us with precious memories.
