George PARROTT

October 10, 1928 - June 11, 2017

Obituary

Our beloved Dad/Papa left us on June 11, 2017 to be with his beloved late wife Natalie, who he said was “the most beautiful woman in the world”.  Our hearts are broken and we miss them terribly but we knew he couldn’t live without her.  A celebration to commemorate Natalie and George was held Sunday, June 11 at the St. Paul Golf Course Tin Cup.  In deepest mourning are his children, Jody, Jackie (George), Rick & Robb (Kelly); grandchildren, Anne, Christie, Melanie, Candice, Michelle, Mark, George & Daniel; great-grandchildren, Nicholas, Ayden, Abigail, Ethan, Isabelle, Andrew, Nate, Jessica, Dominic & Rowyn.
George was born in Esther, Saskatchewan on October 10, 1928.  After the death of his father, he, his mother Alberta, and sisters Helen and Barbara moved to Innisfree, Alberta to live with his grandmother and three uncles. George grew up and went to school in Innisfree, learning and playing the trumpet and saxophone in the family dance band.
George & Natalie, who worked at the local CIBC, met at one of the dances and were married in Mannville on August 18, 1950.  They moved to St. Paul in 1951 to begin a new life together with George working at St. Paul Sales and Service as a tune up specialist for 15 years.  George started his adult education at Alberta Vocational College and moved the family to Edmonton in 1967.  He received his Bachelor of Education degree with distinction in 1970 and the family moved back to St. Paul where he started teaching automotives at St. Paul Regional High School.  George also owned and operated a service station and worked for Indian Affairs as it was then known, and concluded his working career as guidance counselor and band teacher at Ashmont School.
George was instrumental in the design and construction of the St. Paul Golf Course, was club champion several times and served as club president. He was an avid curler, loved playing bridge and ice fishing. He and Natalie loved dancing and shared their passion with many people by teaching throughout the area.

To the family of George Parrott,
Your father was a wonderful teacher who had such a wonderful laugh and was such an encouragement to a student in Ashmont High School. He will be missed by many. From Temple and Rheta and the rest of the Ellis family our prayers and thoughts are with you at this time.

From: Lorraine and Bob Lawton
Relation: we were students

Dear children, our hearts go out to you as you mourn the loss of both parents. How much harder could it get. We pray that you feel the Lord’s arms lifting you up as your friends and relatives comfort you. Your father taught our children band in Ashmont. Your mom taught stretch and sew in the fabric store some 45 years ago. Your parents tried three times to teach us how to dance but we had too many bad habits. We are so thankful for their part in our lives and the lives of our children. Hugs
