Jenny Parker Stacy,  84, died peacefully surrounded by family on Wednesday, March 8, 2023, at Memorial University Medical Center. 

She was born in Savannah to the late Mildred Jones Parker and George Otis Parker. She was predeceased by her brother George Otis Parker, Jr.

Jenny grew up in Ardsley Park and attended the Charles Ellis School, Savannah High School and the University of Georgia. She was married to Hugh Thomas Pade Stacy for 65 years and they had two children, Janet and Alan. Jenny and Hugh were a spirited couple and always the life of the party. She enjoyed quite a few years modeling in fashion shows and print ads in the 70’s and 80’s traveling to Atlanta and New York before she started her career at the Savannah Convention And Visitors Bureau.

 Jenny was involved in Media Relations for 29 years. She promoted Savannah to editors, freelance writers and photographers within the print, electronic, domestic and international markets. She was a member of the prestigious Society of  American Travel Writers for 41 years and was very active on a chapter and national level. She was presented “The Georgia Sweetheart Award” by the Georgia Tourism Division in 1989 and Savannah’s “Herb and Franklin Traub Award”  in 1995 for media development in promoting Savannah. 

She and her husband Hugh, loved traveling and had adventures around the world with family, friends and with the SATW, visiting 47 countries and 5 continents. One of their favorite trips was crossing the Atlantic on the Q E 2. She also enjoyed playing bridge, gardening, reading… and being “Nanny” to her much loved grandchildren and great grandchildren. 

Jenny is survived by her husband Hugh, daughter Janet Stacy Whelan and her son Timothy Whelan, son Alan Stacy and his daughter Madeline Stacy Reinhardt, husband Jonna, and their three children, Archer, Brandt and Camille. Her sister, Mary Parker Lee and several nieces and nephews.

She was a beautiful, fun, devoted wife, mother, grandmother and friend, who will be greatly missed by all that were close to her.  

The service and interment in Hillcrest will be private at Jenny’s request.

A celebration of life party will be scheduled in the near future.

Special thanks to the caring and professional Physicians and Nurses at Memorial Health University Hospital who were so kind during her illness. 



I worked at the Chamber of Commerce in the late 1970s. Jenny was one of the best travel ambassadors Savannah has ever seen. I remember her bringing travel writers to town on a re-creation of the Nancy Hanks. Jenny connected with everyone she met. We miss her greatly.

I am so sorry to learn of Jenny’s passing. I knew her in the early 80’s. I worked at The Desoto Hilton in sales. My favorite memory was our trip to New York and Boston for trade shows. I was a newbie and Jenny was a well traveled woman. She was charming, smart, funny, and a delight to be with. One night we had dinner at Tavern on the Green , maybe too much champagne, and we walked barefoot back to the hotel! I learned so much from her and will always have a lot of lovely memories. Your family will be in my prayers and thoughts through the difficult days to come. Lenna Wegener Dembski, Savannah Georgia

Dear Janet and Alan, I was so very sorry to hear about the loss of your Mother. I really enjoyed seeing your Mom after I moved back to Savannah, when she was with my Mom and Mildred. Jenny was so very funny, smart, and honest, and was a true jot to be around.She will be missed. Thinking of you both and sending much love, Caroline

My condolences to Jenny’s family in this sad news of her passing. Jenny and I were members of SATW during the “height” of our respective careers; Jenny for Savannah and I for Canada. She hosted the SATW BOD meeting in Savannah; one that continues to bring fond memories. She was a woman of extraordinary charm and grace. At one point, we ran against each other (not our doing) for SATW associate rep. It turns out I was the winner and was astounded to receive a floral bouquet of congratulations from Jenny. The gesture has remained with me all these years as a lesson on refinement and respect. It was my privilege to have known and worked with her.
