Patricia Lynn Parker Moncrief (Patty), of Dunwoody, GA passed away after a 30 month battle with brain cancer on Tuesday, October 3, 2017 at the age of 50.

Patty was born to parents Chester and Phyllis Parker (Hanson) on January 31, 1967 in Sylacauga, AL. The family moved to Tucker, GA where Patty and her sister, Lisa, spent their childhood.

While at Tucker High School, among numerous other awards and accolades, Patty was the Georgia State Gymnastics Champion for three years. Her athletic talent earned her a gymnastics scholarship to Auburn University where she majored in International Business and was a member of Alpha Delta Pi sorority. Following college graduation Patty began a successful lifelong career with Merck Pharmaceutical Company.

She loved life, food, travel, family and was a devoted and loyal friend. She never met a stranger, she had no casual friendships. Patty’s compassion was bigger than her bright smile. The first to laugh at herself, her unique sense of humor was broadcasted thru her most extraordinary laugh. She had an adventurous spirit; exemplified in her world travels and willingness to try everything from night deep sea diving, hang gliding, skydiving, to enjoyment of exotic foods.

Patty was involved in her community and church; (Dunwoody United Methodist church), leading a small group for teenage girls, attending Bible studies and prayer groups. She was a devoted wife, mother, daughter, sister and friend. Her daughters remain the center of her life.

Patty is survived by her loving husband of 20 years, Charles Eddie Moncrief Jr. (Ed); her daughters, Alaina Cate Moncrief and Sophia Parker Moncrief; her mother, Phyllis Parker Hanson of Tucker, GA; her sister, Lisa Parker Ramey (Garry) of Alpharetta, GA; 2 nephews, Mitchell and Garrison Ramey; a sister-in-law, Mary Moncrief Fowler (Art); Father-in-law, Charles Eddie Moncrief Sr.; Stepson, Charles Eddie Moncrief III; Step Brother, Gary Hanson as well as many beloved nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles, cousins and friends. The family expresses much love and appreciation to Luiza Roese; for all her love and devotion as Patty’s beloved caregiver.

She is preceded in death by her father, Chester B. Parker; step-father, Lowell H. Hanson; and her mother-in-law, Lucina Moncrief.

Ed, Alaina and Sophia,
Patty and I worked together for years at Merck, but she was more than a co-worker, she was a wonderful friend! She always had a beautiful smile and laughter was so much a part of her life. She brought joy to so many people. She will truly be missed! Heaven is richer because of her being there with our Lord. My thoughts and prayers are with each of you and your extended family.

Ed and girls,
So stunned and saddened by this. Patty and I did meetings together for Merck for several years. What a treat she was to work, intuitive, hard working, funny, and just a joy to be around. Such a sweetheart. I have been retired for 9 years now but have thought of her often and fondly. I pray that God will bring you comfort at this time while she is being comforted in the presence of Jesus.
