Margie M. Parker

1943-2020Parker, Margie

Margie Parker was born on May 21, 1943, to Mark and Hazel Eoff; residing in Sand Springs, Oklahoma. Margie grew up from a child to young adult teenager, between the Sand Springs, Oklahoma and Fayetteville, Arkansas areas she commonly referred to as her “stomping grounds”. Margie Eoff acquired many lifelong friends and relationships during this time. Two of her most important relationships were her finding and accepting her Faith in Jesus Christ; and marrying her lifelong loving husband, Clyde E. Parker Sr. at the age of 16.

Clyde and Margie eventually (1961) migrated from the Tulsa, Ok metro area to Edmond, Oklahoma; where they put down homestead and joined the Edmond, Oklahoma Fire Fighter Family and also jointly owned “Parker’s Welding” metal and construction company. Margie loved her family, gardening, canning, her church and church family. Margie also loved life and loved cooking, which all of her friends and masses from the church functions can quickly attest to.

Margie Parker was a wonderful Firefighters wife and companion to Clyde Parker for 50 years, before Clyde went to make room in heaven for the two of them. She was also the best loving mother her two surviving sons, Gene Parker and Lee Parker could ever ask for. Margie was blessed to have the addition of Melody Parker, wife to her son Lee as well a true friend, daughter and final caregiver to Margie. Mom was also an excellent nurturing grandmother to her surviving grandchildren she co-parented, raised, directed, loved: Blain Aaron, Brea Jean Ann, Jacob Lee and Alaina Lea Parker. Jamma is also survived by three Great Grandchildren: Trinity Hope, Averly Kate and Riley Grace Parker. Although the Great Grandchildren have not been privileged to be parented by Jamma, chased with a switch, scrubbed behind their ears, stuffed full with pork chops, hit with a Bible or Baptized in a horse trough; they did all get to meet, know and love their great grandmother.

“Mom we miss you incredibly! We know you are whole, hosting with Dad and Angels in Heaven, we are ever so proud of the life you provided and the life you lived for us.” – Your Loving Family
