Hilda, 90 years young, passed away Saturday, September 4, 2021, after a courageous battle with cancer. She accepted Christ as her personal Savior as a young girl at a revival service at Antioch Baptist Church.
She was born on April 14, 1931, in Brownsville, TN to the late James Holace Parker and Mabel Parker Booth. Hilda was a supervisor at Brown Shoe Company and retired after 31 years. She didn't quit working though, she went on to work at Milan Express in Milan and then at Trees N Trends in Jackson. She also enjoyed working in the family antique booth "Stanley's Attic" at Carriage House Antique Market as well as assisting Mark and Leah Anne with many weddings and special events. She enjoyed sewing, reading, and cooking. Going to visit with someone gave her great joy as well as her many trips to Branson. She loved music of all kinds and was a great dancer.
On April 18th this past spring, Hilda was able to visit with her many family and friends at her 90th Birthday Celebration. She so loved her church family and always had a kind word or a special hug to share.
She was preceded in death by her parents and her husband, Billy Dean Stanley. She is survived by a loving son, Mark and wife Leah Anne; sister, Ruth Benton; many nephews, nieces, and her precious grand puppies, Bailey and Bella, who brought her so much love and companionship.
The family wishes to thank Laura Moore, special care giver, Mary Kellum and Aserecare Hospice.
