Nancy Parker was set to be the Grand Marshal of the 2020 Nyx parade, according to the popular Krewe’s Facebook page.

The FOX 8 reporter, who was one of two that died in a plane crash last week, had accepted the invitation to lead the parade down the route about five weeks ago, the post reads.

“She was going to lead us down the parade route of New Orleans on 2/19/20 in the city she loved,” it said. “We were thrilled to have her share with everyone her infectious smile and beautiful personality up close and personal in the parade. She was going to throw purses to you in the streets.”

The post went on to pay tribute to local television stalwart writing: “Our thoughts and prayers are with the rest of us in New Orleans as well. This will hurt for a long time. Our city lost a great woman who can never be replaced.”
