CHARLOTTE, Vt. – Sarah Nichols Gruenig and David Preston Parker III passed away Oct. 17, 2012, and June 17, 2013, respectively.
Best friends and life partners for more than 40 years, Sarah and David enjoyed a rich life full of adventures. Sarah and David preferred to live private lives, but those friends and family who were close to them appreciated Sarah’s quiet sense of humor and David’s gentle, caring nature. Sarah and David spent their lives doing all the things they loved: owning and managing a horse farm in Rochester, living in Montana and Vermont, traveling to many U.S. National Parks and enjoying the outdoors. David was a jack of all trades and spent years driving truck cross country. Sarah’s favorite work was raising and training horses and dogs, and she had an exceptional green thumb. Sarah and David were endearing souls and will be missed.
The family will hold a private interment service in Brooklin. Memories or condolences may be sent to the family at Parker/Gruenig, P.O. Box 159, Shelburne, VT 05482.
