Mary Parrish, the amazing and wonderful woman we have all come to love, is currently battling a brain tumor. There will be ups and downs along the way, and more than anything she will need the support of friends and family to stay positive and strong to beat this challenge. That is what this site is for!
Mary Parrish, born on April 4th, 1977, has always been a go-getter. Having incredible talents in everything she has tried to do, she excelled through school. As a young athlete, she was a very talented gymnast. She also immensely enjoyed learning new skills, such as basketball, playing the flute, and loved being the high school drum major. She also excelled academically, getting straight A's most of her school career. Mary graduated college with a double degree in Biology and Chemistry. After being a fantastic science teacher at Wenatchee High School for several years, she went on to become a nurse for the same wonderful community. All during this time, she has been married to her awesome husband Mike Parrish, and has 4 awesome kids: Audrey, who is about to go to Dixie State on a swimming scholarship; Dylan, who is loving football and other sports in high school; Boden, who is about to enter 8th grade and loves everyone and everything; and Sam (Rambo), who continues to be the incredibly sweet surprise to finish off the family, just finished kindergarten. Mary has a lot of faith in God, and that her life has purpose. She also believes this trial, wherever it takes her and her family, has purpose. She is willing to submit to the process, and will need all of our faith and prayers to keep up her strength. Thank you for visiting the page and keeping updated!
