Kari Parker Beaty

June 8, 1948July 11, 2019

Kari Parker Beaty, 71, passed away on July 11, 2019. Kari was born and raised in Fort Worth by her parents, Honnie O'neal Parker and Elizabeth Abbott Parker. Kari, or Cat, as she was lovingly known, was a self proclaimed "Flea Market Queen", often procuring antique and costume jewelry. Her bubbly personality was contagious and allowed her to easily befriend vendors and comrades with the same interests. She met the love of her life, John, in 1967 and they married in 1969. They shared 50 years of marriage. Beloved wife, mother, sister, and friend will be dearly missed by all those blessed to have walked this journey with her. She is survived by her loving husband, John Beaty; children, James, John Ray and Bonnie; sister, Honnie Kaye, and numerous other relatives and friends.
