Kathy Deminie Parrish passed away at her home in Virginia Beach Tuesday, May 10, 2022 after a long valiant struggle with cancer.  

Kathy was born to Lyle and Rita Stubbs in Haverhill, Massachusetts on July 19th , 1963.  She is of French Canadian descent.

Kathy met her husband, Roger Dale Parrish, Jr. (Roddy) in 1996, while working in the restaurant business in Virginia Beach.  They were married 10 years later on August 12, 2006.  She is predeceased by her parents, Lyle and Rita.

Left to cherish her memory, are her husband, Roddy Parrish, her brother Kenny Stubbs and his wife Margo, her nieces, Michelle, Holly and Leah and her nephews, Chris, Mike, Brian and Eric.  She also leaves behind her beloved BFF, Lori Watson.

She will be missed by her “Doc Taylor” restaurant family and by “Virginia Gifts” where she managed several gift shops at the Virginia Beach Oceanfront.

Kathy’s stunning looks in her teens and early 20’s earned her modeling jobs and acting parts in television.

She loved making decorative cakes and pies and sold them to local restaurants in addition to gifting them to family and friends.

In her later years, Kathy enjoyed painting pictures on canvas and growing flowers.

She adored her dog Max and cat Sylvester.

A Memorial Service will be held June 4, 2022 at 12 Noon at Altmeyer Funeral Home, Maestas Chapel at 1801 Baltic Avenue, Virginia Beach, VA 23451.

Donations may be made in Kathy’s honor to the American Cancer Society and/or to the S.P.C.A.

Roger I just found out about Kathy’s passing. I’m so very sorry for your loss and please accept my humble condolences! I lived Kathy just because of who she was. She was bold, and held nothing back when it came to how she felt about… Well, anything. Like me in many ways and I guess that’s why we always got along. You never had to worry about where she stood on any subject because she told you how she honestly felt right or wrong, good or bad. I know she fought a fierce fight with her illness and I thought she was gonna kick that Cancer right in the ass and send it right back where it came from! I had highhopes that she would overcome and prevail and it breaks my heart knowing she gave it her all but it had just wreaked havoc on her body I’m sure. I know how much she loved you and you probably have her to thank for many many different things over the years! She sure kept you straight most of the time but every now and then you tried to get a little crazy but she’d always get you back on the right path and loved you through it all. She was a great person. So smart, skilled, and creative. I always enjoyed hanging out when we all had time after work or on the weekends when you guys lived with Micheal and I briefly. I’m sure she was exhausted after all the several year’s she fought her illness so hard. I’m so sorry man. I’m super glad she’s no longer suffering or in pain but I hate she had to leave so soon. You and her family are in my thoughts and prayers. I wish I had known before now but I really just saw it on FB. Her birthday came up in my notifications and I realized I’ve been so busy with the startup of my company and business I haven’t been on FB very much but I did know I hadn’t seen her or heard from her in quite a while. I pray you have received peace for understanding and comfort from God for your sorrows.

God bless you and I pray she is at peace in heaven. I’m always here if you ever need to talk. Feel free to call me Roger (803-645-0474). I hope you are doing ok.
