Kelly Rene Myrick Parish

Monday, April 26, 2021

Kelly Rene Myrick Parish, 42, of Manila, left this earth on Tuesday, April 6, 2021.

Born in Blytheville, Kelly grew up in Armorel where she graduated as a Tiger in 1997. She later went back to school and earned her RN degree from Arkansas Northeastern College. Kelly loved being a nurse almost as much as being a mom. She met some of her closest friends during her nursing career including her best friend, Christie Brister. Kelly was an avid Razorback fan and loved making people laugh or at least smile with her Facebook stories and videos. Kelly’s humor and compassionate personality will be greatly missed by all.

She was preceded in death by her father, Ralph Myrick; her paternal grandparents, Earl and Ella Myrick; and maternal grandfather, Billy Branch.

Kelly is survived by her sons, Logan Parish and Rylan Parish of the home; mother, Cathy Myrick of Blytheville; grandmother, Geneva Branch of Earle; sisters, Tracy Russell and husband Randall of Memphis, Tenn., and Lori Brees and husband David of Manila; nieces, Jessica Russell, Ashlynn Brees, Maegan Brees and Meagan Russell; nephew, Jacob Russell; great-niece, Penelope; great-nephews, Baker, Walker and Colton; and numerous aunts, uncles and cousins who loved her.

Memorial services will be held Saturday, May 1, at 2 p.m. in the Cobb Funeral Home Chapel. Interment will follow in Dogwood Cemetery. The family will receive friends from 1 p.m. until service time at Cobb Funeral Home. Condolences may be expressed to the family at
