Denise C. Parkes, 63, of Clinton died at home suddenly on Monday April 27, 2020.

Denise was born at Emerson Hospital in Concord, MA on July 22, 1956 to Richard and Evelyn Parkes. She graduated from Acton-Boxborough Regional High School and went on to graduate from Rivier University in Nashua, NH. She worked as a nurse at Sisters of St. Chretienne in Marlborough, MA. Previously she worked in early childhood education. Prior to living in Clinton she lived in Boxborough, Acton and Littleton.

Denise’s life centered around her family and her church family. She attended and was a member at The United Church of Christ-Congregational of Boxborough for over 40 years. She was heavily involved in church activities for many years, serving as a deacon and in many other capacities. Denise was a very caring and giving person, showing a tremendous amount of empathy for others. There was no better example of this than her living with and caring for her mother Evelyn for many years.

Among her many loves were everything Red Sox, Christmas (for which she would start preparing in the summer), birthdays, Thanksgiving and children. Some of her happiest moments were when she gave gifts and presents to others, putting a smile on their face.

Denise is survived by her mother Evelyn Parkes of Clinton, her brother Richard Parkes and his partner Kathleen O’Connor of Milton, nephews Justin Parkes of Brighton and Ricky Parkes of Worcester, and several cousins including Gregory and Carolyn Baecthle of Summerville, SC. She is predeceased by her father Richard S. Parkes.

Burial is in South Cemetery, Boxborough, with services to be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations to the United Church of Christ-Congregational of Boxborough, 723 Massachusetts Ave, Boxborough, MA 01719, would be much appreciated.

I am heartbroken to imagine life at UCC Boxborough without Denise's smiling face. Denise and I were deacons together, and she used her gifts of empathy and nurturing to reach out and really care for others. Her faith was strong, and her love of our church community was deep. I loved being with Denise on our women's retreats and I'll always remember her pride in going on every single one! She loved to listen with deep respect and caring,and was also ready to let loose and really laugh out loud in our evening games together! Denise was such a quiet observer at times, and yet ready for almost anything once she knew what was up! It was truly inspiring to see how devoted Denise and her mom were to each other. I feel so lucky to have known Denise and Evelyn, and will miss them deeply.
