Simply A Farmer’s Wife

About Us


This is our story after the death of our only child, Parker Reese.  She was born at Duke University Medical Center on May 7, 2006 at 9:03 a.m. weighing 3 pounds and 12 ounces.  She passed away on May 8, 2006 after 20 hours of fighting a rare birth defect known as Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia (CDH).   You can find her story and many other CDH families at  Not only am I a mommy but I am a farmer’s wife.  I love and adore my husband, Ashley!  He is my constant inspiration!   He farms 6 days a week, 11 months out of the year but it’s our life and we love it!  Welcome to our world!

I too am a Farmer’s Wife (you look close to my age–late 20’s early 30’s?) from Missouri and happened to stumble across your web page while looking for a t-shirt that says “Farmer’s Wife” on it. How funny is that?

I am so sorry to hear about your loss. I am on maternity leave with my third daughter. My husband too is a full-time farmer—sounds like he works as much as your husband. Very hard to get used to at first, but we made it.

Good luck in the future.
