Terrie Lynn Parks, born November 25 1955 in Lake Providence, Louisiana to the late Thomas and Estelle Coburn. She was the baby girl to a large sibling family of seven.
Terrie was originally diagnosed with cancer in 2014 and was able to place it in remission multiple times with the help of many skilled medical providers and most of all by the Grace of God. During her battle with cancer she continued to keep her eyes looking forward to what life still had for her and what she could do for others.
Terrie Parks was called to her eternal resting place by her Lord and Savior on April 3, 2021 at her home in Tallulah Louisiana surrounded by her family during her entrance into eternal life. She was sixty five years old.
Terrie was born and raised in Lake Providence and attended Lake Providence High School. She accepted the Lord as her Savior at a very young age. She was a lifelong learner. She was driven to learn and could do anything that she set her mind too. Her life goals were to love, support and uplift her friends and family. For everyone she knew, she made them feel as though they were family. She was always known to never look down on another, be there for anyone in their time of need at any time day or night. One of her greatest loves were her grandchildren and was known as MeMe to all.
Terrie was preceded in death by her daughter, Stephanee (Nikki) David; father, Thomas Coburn; Mother, Estelle Coburn.

There will be a celebration of life at her home, 115 Sam Vilardo Road in Tallulah, La on April 10th, 2021 from 5:30 pm until 8:00 pm (dark). The celebration will be a time for laughter, reminiscing and catching up with friends and family while honoring MeMe’s life. There will be a candle lighting memorial for her to end the ceremony. All friends and family are encouraged to come. Terrie’s request would be that you come as you are. She did not want anything fancy or uncomfortable.
