This union was blessed with three daughters; Jean (Robert) Burke, Beverly Ann Parker, and Dolores (Lawrence) Sturdivant.

My sincere condolences to the family. May Jehovah bring you comfort knowing that she has faith in the resurrection.

Our families go WAY back. Jean & myself were just kids. We'd go to Clarkes and buy clothes for for our dolls.😅 We'd stay the night at each other's home. Our moms & my grandmother made sure we were on the right track & taught us about the Bible. I'm thankful that Jehovah put the Parker Family in my life
Much love to the family,
Carolyn Hurdle

To my cousins, Our sympathy. As I told you, Aunt Thelma was a great lady, always kind and thoughtful. One quality that I’ll always remember is she had the ability to make all of us feel special. We all thought we were her favorite. I’m sure she’s in heaven having a great time with Uncle Buddy, my mother and other family members. She’ll be missed. Lil, James, Toot and Tara.

To the family of Sister Parker, although she has gone to sleep, we look forward with joy in our hearts to her waking up to a life here on earth where sickness and death will never again be the plague that they are now. Her pleasant smile and calm manner accompanied by zeal for Jehovah and the work He gives us are what I always think of when Thelma comes to mind. May Jehovah's holy spirit comfort and strengthen all of you. "Those blessed by {Jehovah} will possess the earth." Ps 37:22a "Grief and sighing will flee away." Isaiah 35:10b "Death will be no more, neither pain. Look I am making all things new," He {Jehovah} says. With love and condolences, Theresa Miller
