Doris Parrott, age 93, joined her husband Lyle, in heaven, on April 14, 2021 surrounded by her loving family. Doris was born on October 24, 1927 to Hazel and Clifford Cooper in Muskegon, MI, and was a twin and one of twelve children (eleven girls and one boy). Doris was a stay-at-home mom, raising her kids alongside close friends and neighbors on Cornell Road. There were always friends at the kitchen table having coffee, while the neighborhood kids gathered to play games in the yard. Sundays were designated family days, spent visiting family and friends, and stopping for ice cream along the way. Butter Pecan was Doris' favorite, and Lyle's was always chocolate. What great times those were. During Christmas, Doris and her sister Jackie would bake various kinds of cookies, and make their famous sea foam. Doris was full of life, outgoing, and loved her cigarettes! She didn't have much of a filter - always speaking what was on her mind. For fun, she loved watching her grandkids play sports, catching a Detroit Tigers game on tv, and working in her yard. We will always have fun memories of playing on Snapchat with her, making funny faces and laughing hysterically. Her grandchildren will cherish memories of family summer camping trips, building forts in the living room and remembering how she let them do whatever they wanted to, as long as they were having fun. Doris will be lovingly remembered by her children Diane and Vern Westerhof from Holland, Jan Schumacher from North Muskegon, Phyllis and Mike Sullivan from Muskegon, and Lyle and Becky Parrott from Traverse City. Her grandchildren: Holly Mashour (Michael), Craig Westerhof (Melissa), TJ Schumacher (Michelle Williams), Tara Steketee (Mike), Michael Sullivan, Patrick Sullivan (Kaleigh Sumner), Kristin Parrott, and Brandon Parrott (Melanie). Her great grandchildren: Tori MacVane (Michael), Tess Mashour, Cole, Connor, and Jonah Westerhof, Sebastian and Magnolia Steketee, Westyn, Karsyn, and Ender Parrott, and Jaxson and Josie who lovingly called her LaLa. Doris was preceded in death by her husband Lyle, her infant son, and her son-in-law Tom Schumacher. If you wish to make a donation in Doris' name, please consider Hospice of Muskegon Michigan. There will be a celebration of life for Doris at a later date. Please visit www.muskegoncremation.com to leave a memory or sign the online guestbook.
