Posted by on Dec 11, 2018

Mrs. Gerrie Elizabeth (Kilby) Parker departed this world on Tuesday, December 11, 2018 at the Campbellsville Nursing and Rehab Center. Born on April 20, 1941 to Mrs. Herlene (McGaha) Kilby and the late Mr. Lendolph Kilby, she was 77 years, 7 months, and 21 days of age. She was the cherished wife of, and proud homemaker to, Mr. Harlin Parker, who preceded her in death in 2011. She took pleasure in her work as a babysitter and childcare provider, and carried that love and compassion all the days of her life. Mrs. Parker had made a profession of faith in Christ and was a member of Robinson Chapel Separate Baptist Church. Always artistic, she enjoyed creating colorful drawings and collecting teddy bears, but she was happiest and most content when she had a baby on her lap.

She leaves to cherish her memory: five children: Douglas Wayne Parker and wife Renee of South Carolina, Diana Lynn Lenington and husband Roger of Danville, Kim Knifley and husband Joe of Elk Horn, Amy Hicks and husband Carl of Campbellsville, and Renay Wethington and husband Mike of Campbellsville; her mother: Mrs. Herlene Kilby of Campbellsville; a sister: Shirley Matney and husband Gene of Campbellsville; brothers-in-law: Johnny Parker and wife Jean of Elk Horn, Ron Parker of Florida; three sisters-in-law: Betty Parker of Elk Horn, Patsy Riggs of Illinois, and Burma Wheeler of Campbellsville; fourteen grandchildren, twenty-five great-grandchildren and a host of other family and friends.

Special Thanks to all the staff at Campbellsville Nursing and Rehab for their great care.

Ernest Gotham, 79

Posted by on Dec 11, 2018

Mr. Ernest McLain “Ernie” Gotham of the Breeding community in Adair County departed this life on Sunday, December 9, 2018 at the Norton Hospital in Louisville after a brief illness. Born on April 4, 1939 in Norwood, Massachusetts, he was 79 years, 8 months, and 5 days of age. Mr. Gotham was a retired police detective and was of the Christian faith. He spent his later years enjoying crossword puzzles, eating too much candy, and watching his Boston Red Sox create a Major League dynasty. As a historical enthusiast, there wasn’t much he didn’t know about the Civil War, and his appreciation for all things athletic served him well as an umpire and referee.

He leaves to mourn his passing:

Five children, Lisa Gotham and fiancé Anthony Vickery of Columbia, Chris Gotham of Breeding, and Kristy Gotham-Flynn, Richard Gotham, and Susan Gotham-Hildreth, all of Massachusetts,

One local grandchild, Amelia Vickery, and several extended grandchildren,

A former spouse, Barbara Lionetti of Breeding,

One niece, Bridgette Flynn-Bennett and husband Christian, and their son, James,

And a host of other family and friends.

He was preceded in death by his mother, Doris Wedge Gotham, a son and daughter, David Gotham and Ashley Gotham, and his sister, Beverly Flynn.

Cremation was chosen, and a memorial service will be announced and conducted at a later date in Massachusetts.
