Maria Antonietta Parra, age 52, “Anni” to all who knew and loved her died suddenly on Friday December 28, 2018 of an unexpected illness.
Anni served as the grant administrator at Talbert and Bright Engineering. Anni always knew just the right help to lend. She chose just the right words. She listened and she cared and you could feel it. Some lights are so bright they can never be extinguished. Her megawatt smile was something to behold and it was always given so freely. Oh, and by the way, her hair was really badass, too.
Anni was born in El Paso, Texas to Guillermo M.Parra and Maria Chavez Parra and grew up with with six brothers and sisters Willie, Lori, Ernie, Margie, Peter, Greg and her very special cousin Gina.
Anni is also survived by her spouse Deb Butler, and her beloved pups Paytee Pie and Molly Moo, as well as countless nieces and nephews.
