Charisma Lee-Andra Rain Ruess-Parker

| September 16, 2022 7:00 AM

Izzie R. Parker, 14, our beloved daughter, sister, granddaughter, cousin, niece and friend, was granted her angel wings on Sept. 12, 2022.

Izzie was born May 27, 2008, in Billings, Montana, to Christopher Robert Parker and Cassandra Ruess.

Christopher and Jessica brought Izzie home to Libby, Montana, in April of 2009.

Izzie enjoyed playing sports and making her friends and family laugh at any cost. Izzie’s hobbies were journaling, any water sports (tubing, knee boarding, driving the wave runners), skating, listening to music, taking pictures and pulling practical jokes whenever there was an opportunity.

She was preceded in death by her great-grandma Blackburn, grandma Becky Derrickson, grandma Jonie Strong, grandpa Dave and grandma Beverly James.

She leaves behind a massive emptiness in her large family’s heart and will forever be missed by her dad Christopher Parker, mother Cassandra Ruess, mom Jessica Obrecht and step-dad Ashley Swartzenberger; siblings Cyleigh, Teighler, Aspen, Austin, Tylor, Daiven, Desa, Desi, and Jackson; aunts and uncles Jason and Kerri, Ashley, Dakota, Brandon and Kristy, Kasey and Zach, Kelly, Tommy, Felisha, Shane and Lynn, Amber, Ryan, Kenya, Neenah; an abundance of cousins from Montana all the way to Ohio; grandparents Bob and Dia Lanman, Deanna Bee, Joe and Barb Swartzenberger, and Bob Parker and Vicky.

Services will be held at 11 a.m. Monday Sept. 19, 2022, at Libby Christian Church.

Arrangements are made by Schnackenberg Funeral Homes. Online condolences and memories may be shared at
