Dovie Parks Starcher, 88, of Charleston, passed away on January 21, 2019.
Dovie was a generous, loving lady with family, friends and strangers. She worked in private health care well into her 80’s and never lost her great sense of humor or keen intelligence no matter what obstacles life put in her way. Dovie served several terms in the silver haired legislature. She loved all living creatures, was an avid collector of dolls and all things beautiful. Never a day without a laugh, she will be greatly missed.
She was preceded in death by her husband, Delbert Starcher, Jr.; mother, Dallas Parks; father, Lannie Parks; brothers, Lawrence Parks, Owen Parks and Red Hanshaw.
Dovie is survived by her sons, Kenneth Starcher (Gina) and Bruce Starcher; daughter, Kristy “Cookie” Elliott (Frank); grandchildren, Alan and Scott Starcher and Michelle Adkins, Kenn II and Ben Starcher; numerous great and great-great grandchildren.
A Service to Honor the Life of Dovie will be held at Noon, Saturday, January 26, 2019 at Snodgrass Funeral Home. Burial will follow in Elk Hills Memorial Park, Big Chimney. Family and Friends may gather at the funeral home one hour prior to the service.
