Elizabeth Sharon Day Parker

December 28, 1943 ~ January 11, 2024

Elizabeth Sharon Day Parker (80) passed away peacefully at home with her loving family on January 11, 2024.

Sharon was born on December 28, 1943, to Joseph Wilbur Day and Minnie Belle Thompson Day in the town of Greenville, Florida. She is predeceased by both her parents, her brother David Day and former husband of 32 years Mickey Parker.

Sharon is survived by daughter Patrice Parker- King (Rick) and daughter Becky Parker (Spike) Granddaughters Madison Grace King and Kendall Elizabeth King

Sharon was raised in Fellsmere, Florida where she attended all years of school at the old historical schoolhouse. Her dad oversaw operations at the Florida Crystal farms during that time. Her mom was a loving, kind, and generous woman that took care of the family and was always there to help others in need. Sharon followed in her mom’s footsteps as she played this same role in her life.

She was proud to call herself one of the Oldtimers and looked forward to the Old Timer reunions. After graduating high school her family moved to Belle Glade, FL where her dad continued working with Florida Crystals. Sharon became a telephone operator at that time.

She married HM (Mickey) Parker in 1965 and moved to Macon, Georgia. After a few years in Georgia, they moved and settled in Vero Beach, Florida where she raised and cared for her family. She was always involved in school activities and opening her home to all our childhood friends. Often referring to them as her extended children.

Sharon loved playing tennis, reading books, music (times spent with her Southern Gospel friends), church luncheons, Sunday sermons, the beach, the river, cooking, baking, planning family gatherings, family reunions, (Sharon was blessed with lots of aunts, uncles and cousins making these some of her most special memories) She loved the history of Indian River County and was fortunate to meet many families through her work.

After raising her children, she decided to take some classes and became a CNA. She did private duty care giving for many local families. She loved this new role. She was a natural caregiver,

She loved her patients and their families. They became friends and part of our family.

Her greatest role was being a grandma, Mama Sharon (Mush) to Madison and Kendall. She loved and cherished every moment she spent with them.

Through her actions she taught us to love, how to be humble, kind, compassionate, and to always acknowledge God and his love with all our heart. Sharon loved life and laughter. She was a blessing to many; her memory will be treasured as we will love and miss her always.

I am so very sorry for you loss. Her passing has been so sad for me. We will see her again soon. Love to Becky, Patrice and family.

  • The service from Millennium was outstanding. Rachel was sweet, personable and very comforting. It was important to me that my dad was kept locally where I knew where he would be. Very nice facility, state of the art and quality of my fathers remains were so refined compared to my mothers years ago. I highly recommend this place for an affordable choice for your loved one. Thank you for making an already stressful event easy. With high regards, the Esposito and Keith Family.

  • Millennium Cremation provided a fantastic service to our family at a difficult time. Our beloved mother passed away in Vero Beach and the rest of the family was in other parts of the country. Due to the Covid health crisis, none of us could get to Vero Beach in person. That's where Millennium took over. They helped us manage everything, coordinated with a cemetery in Maine, managed the obituaries, expedited all the paperwork, and even delivered an important document locally that saved us days. Funeral director Rachel was a godsend, and she made it clear what she was going to do, and what we needed to do. If you know what you want, Millennium is highly recommended, and the savings versus the full service mortuaries is significant.
