JOY VITA (PARKER) WELDON
OCTOBER 30TH 1937 to AUGUST 4TH 2021

Joy was the first born of Rufus and Lena Parker with two sisters following, Judith and Diane.

Joy lived her life as she saw fit sometimes that was on the edge of life and forgetting her medical issues so she could really enjoy life as it was meant to be enjoyed.

We raised horses and had one on the racetrack in California. We went whitewater rafting for our honeymoon. I took her to places that she was not comfortable with and with my help she was able to enjoy some beauty that otherwise would escape her.

Joy had seven children, two died before birth and she had to have an abortion for those two, five grew up with the same fire their mother had, from those five the oldest two have moved on to better times in their own field of flowers. We had one girl through a surrogate mother, her second daughter and adopted three more. When I met Joy she was into foster care and treated those kids as if they were her own, we continued being foster parents when we got to Sacramento.

Joy has been preceded by her father and mother, Rufus and Lena, her oldest son Duane and his lover Leroy, her oldest daughter Susan and a good friend from Germany, Chuck plus many others that are possible unknow to me. Surviving her are her companion in life, husband, friend, her jokester and stud. Her daughters Tamara, Leslie, Joanne and Tami (Beth), her sons, David, Steven and Dudley. Her granddaughters, Ninja, Madison and Alexandra, her grandsons Joshua and Parker and her great grandchildren, Hailee, Nathan and Lucas. Very good friends that are scattered across the states, Ken Richey, Linda Brown, Nancy Williams, Dee and Manuel and many more, she also left a big hole in everyone’s heart.

Waiting to here from everyone during my spooktacular memorial service on the 30th of October.

Her last thought: “I love you a bushel and a Peck with a hug around the neck….”
