Ariane Charisse Parnell, was a beloved daughter, mother, sister, granddaughter, niece, cousin, and friend. On Monday, September 18, 2023, surrounded by her loved ones, she made her transition from this Earthly home, and gained her eternal wings.

Ariane was born May 17, 1989, in Florence, South Carolina. She was the daughter of Mrs. Pquillia M. Fulton, and Mr. Thomas M. Parnell. She was baptized as an infant at the Spears United Methodist Church, in Bennettsville, South Carolina. During her childhood and youth, she attended Simon Temple AME Zion Church, where she was actively involved with the youth ministries of the church. During her illness, she accepted Christ as her Savior, which makes us at peace, knowing that she is with the Lord.

Ms. Parnell started her early education in the public schools of Lawton, Oklahoma, and completed the duration of her education in the public schools of Cumberland County, NC. She graduated from Seventy-First High School in 2007. Ariane was very active in sports. She aggressively played soccer from the early age of 8, through her senior year of high school. She also participated in the fine arts of dance and orchestra. After completing high school, she attended North Carolina Central University, in Durham, NC.

Ariane enjoyed preparing and serving exquisite dishes. She was employed with the Fayetteville State University Culinary Department for 9 years. She also worked with Comcast of New Jersey for a period, and resided and worked in Atlanta, Georgia.
