Wilhema Parrish Crownover, of Cheyenne departed from this life on August 29th 2023 at Cheyenne Regional Medical Center, surrounded by family and her beloved minister.
Willie was born at home on January 18th 1941, daughter of Robert and Mary (Perry) Throgmorton.
Willie is survived by her loving children Ann (Steve) Burkitt, Lynn (Troy) Deason, Rae (Mark) ZeKovich and Charles Parrish, Jr.; stepchildren Connie (Clayton) Neighbors, Larry (Sue) Crownover, Margot (Bruce) Plachetka, Michael (Gloria) Crownover; eight grandchildren Allison (Joseph) Pike, Daniel Harkins, Stephanie Harkins, Erik (Taylor) Deason, Sarh Zekovich, Michele Zekovich, Charles (Sarah) Parrish III, Caleb Parrish; as well as numerous Great Grandchildren.
She was preceded in death by her parents, her sisters, Pat Alwa, Connie King, Debbie Ramsay, and Carolyn Montgomery.
She was also preceded in death by her first husband Charles Parrish, her second husband David Crownover who passed away in 2014 and her feline friend, Cowboy who loved only her.
Although they met later in life, they cherished those years together by traveling, enjoying time with family and study in their Bible together.
Willie spent her younger adult life, raising four children. Later, she became a real estate broker and started her own business.
Willie always had a love for fresh mountain air. She moved to Wyoming in 2002 after growing tired of the humidity in the Midwest. She always commented that the clouds were more beautiful and the air was crisper out West.
After retirement from real estate, Willie had many hobbies such as reading library books, crocheting baby blankets for her great-grandchildren, and attending church. She was a beloved member of Victory World Outreach and love taking her grandchildren.
A celebration of life will be held at a later date; per their wishes David and her ashes will be spread in the mountains.
