Wendy Parrott Garney

May 24, 1979December 24, 2012

On the night of December 24, 2012, Wendy left the restraints of this world and entered into the presence of her Lord. She is survived by her loving husband Justin, her parents Martha and Dwayne Parrott, sister Laurie Parrott, brother Daryl Parrott and wife Becca, niece Madisyn, mother-in-law Constance Garney, father-in-law Gary Garney and wife Connie, countless aunts, uncles, cousins, and close friends. She attended Sam Rayburn High School where she excelled academically and enjoyed cheerleading for 4 years. She then attended the University of Texas, where she graduated with a Bachelor of Science in microbiology. In 2005, she accepted a teaching position at South Houston High School where she had been teaching science and coaching cheerleading for the past 7 years. She loved her students and enjoyed sharing in their successes. She followed her passion for cheerleading with her squads through many hours of practice, games, and camps. Wendy held family near to her heart, and was a devoted wife, daughter, sister, and aunt. She met the love of her life at South Houston High School, where Justin continues to teach and coach. They were married on June 25th of this year. Courageous to the end, Wendy battled brain cancer for almost 8 years, enduring numerous procedures, operations, and treatments without a single complaint. Her resolve was a source of strength to all that knew her. She never let cancer define who she was. We want to thank everyone for their prayers, love, and support. They have been and still are a tremendous source of strength. Although she will be terribly missed, there is peace and comfort in knowing that she is now completely whole and experiencing eternal joy in the presence of our Savior. The family will receive friends for visitation on Thursday, December 27, 2012 from 5:00-8:00 pm at Grand View Funeral Home. Funeral services will take place on Friday, December 28, 2012 at 12:30 at Memorial Baptist Church 6901 Fairmont Pkwy. Pasadena, TX 77505. Interment will follow in Grand View Memorial Park.

My condolences to the Parrott &'Garney families. Wendy was an amazing person. I will never forget the times we spent together whether it was at gymnastics, swimming at her house or in our later years cheering, working together and hanging out. She was always a great friend and will never be forgotten.
