Delcena Parrott

Delcena "Vareen" Parrott

February 15, 1928-February 10, 2008

On February 10, 2008, Delcena "Vareen" Parrott left this world to begin a journey to Heaven as she had long waited to meet with the Heavenly Father and reunite with many others who had gone ahead of her to prepare her place in Heaven.

She came to begin her journey of life on February 15, 1928 in Seattle, Wash., and was the older of two children and is survived by her brother, Alfred Eldon Root of Medford, Ore. Her parents, William Root, and Delcena "Fay" Garrison-Root, preceded her in death as did her husband, Harvey Parrott, along with her eldest son, Michael Firman. She is survived by her seven children; Patrica Firman, Renee Dodd, and Theresa Firman, all of Talent, Ore., Paul Firman of Coos Bay, Ore., Mary Dunlap, of Eagle Point, Ore., Timothy Firman, of Medford, Ore., and Kathleen Hillyer, of Fruita, Colorado.

She was a grandmother of 28, and a great-grandmother of 27. She also had extended step-children and their children. She was known to volunteer whenever needed for any cause. She was a master doll maker, and owned Vareen's Ceramics where she made Christmas ornaments for the Dream Tree.

Her last 10 months were spent with family in Colorado, surrounded by many who loved her and will miss her, as well as all who she knew and loved her. She was always there when a baby was born, and first to help others when a loved one had begun their journey to join the Heavenly Father. She was very close, and appreciated her brother's wife, Iris Root as she knew she could count on her any time of the day or night if she needed her. Iris was her sister-in-law but also was a great friend. Many knew her and all will miss her.

From her family, we wish her a SAFE, WARM, HAPPY, PEACEFUL, AND LONG-AWAITED REST. We will miss you "Momma" but we know we will see you again on the other side of the veil. May the Heavenly Father keep you until we reunite!

She had a small service in Fruita, Colo. at the Snell-McLean Funeral Home on her 80th Birthday on February 15, 2008, at 2:00 P.M., She will then return to Medford, Ore. for a graveside service at Siskiyou Memorial Park, on February 18, 2008, at 11:00 A.M.
