Nancy Diane Parsons, 56, of Fernley, Nev., passed into heaven on Sept. 4, 2011.
The eldest child of Steven Konakis and Alicia Konakis, Nancy graced San Francisco, Price, Sonoma and Fernley, with her joyous smile, infectious laughter, and gorgeous blue eyes. A free spirit at heart, she found joy in every day.
Her proudest accomplishment was being a mother and grandmother to her four children and grandchildren. "Grandma Reno" is best known for "all the fun stuff" - rice crispy treat breakfasts, finger painting, and hours of wild giggling.
Nancy is survived by her husband, Joel Parsons; son, Sam (Amber) Baker, Price; daughters, Cambria (Jimmy) Adams, Santa Rosa, Calif; and Amy (Colter) Wasson, San Diego, Calif; grandchildren, Dane, Taylor, Mikey, & Marissa; mother Alicia; sister Connie (John) Grasso, Sparks, Nev; and many family, friends and "Special Sisters".
She was welcomed warmly to the other side by her son, David Baker, brother, Kenny Konakis, nephew, Paul Konakis, and father, Steve. She will be missed by all who were lucky enough to know her.
Services will be held on Sunday, Sept. 25, 2011 at Spring Hill Church located at 3700 Fulton Road, Santa Rosa, Calif., from 2-4 p.m.
In remembrance of Nancy, the family asks that you consider becoming an organ donor.
