Obituary for LATANYA A. PARKER

LaTanya Agaither Parker, affectionately known as "Tanya" was born on August 25, 1973 to Gaither Woodrow Parker, Jr. and Josephine Lucille Parker. She was born the third of four children, and was the youngest daughter. After living a full life, she passed away at John Hopkins Hospital on December 29, 2014.

Tanya was educated in the Calvert County Public School system. She attended Mutual Elementary in St. Leonard, Maryland, Southern Middle School in Lusby, Maryland and Calvert Senior High School in Prince Frederick, Maryland. Tanya received her high school diploma in 1991. After high school, she worked at the ARC of Southern Maryland as an employment specialist, in the residential program and Crisis House with Southern Maryland Community Network, and with Always There Companion Care LLC as a companion specialist. In addition, she took courses at Fleet Business School.

Once her physical condition no longer allowed her to work, Tanya was able to spend valuable time with special people in her life. She devoted some of her time to attend concerts of her favorite artists, specifically Frankie Beverly & Maze, New Edition and the Dells. Tanya also loved to go out with special friends, Shonda Stewart & Dorisa Parker, and family members for meals throughout Maryland, Washington DC and Virginia. She enjoyed traveling throughout the US and took several trips to Cancun and Puerto Rico. Tanya also exercised as much as her body would allow, as she participating in activities at a local gym and took frequent walks. Tanya also looked forward to getting her hair done by her personal hair stylist Marine (Rene).

However, Tanya loved nothing more than to spend time with her great nieces and nephews
Kameron, Dajoun and Kaylynn. As Kameron started to attend Head Start and Pre-K, Tanya
volunteered her time at many school events & fundraisers. She also joined the PTA. Tanya also
spent quality time with Dajoun and Kaylynn at her home. Tanya was also our designated
photographer whenever we held family events. Several people commented about the great pictures Tanya would take of her family during time of joy and grief. Tanya would also prepare meals for her grandmother Lucille, once she was not able to complete this task on her own.
Tanya accepted Jesus Christ as her Lord and Savior. Tanya completed a baptism ceremony in 2005 and renewed her faith in 2014.

Tanya leaves to cherish her memories her father and mother Gaither Jr and Josephine Parker; one grandparent, Lucy James; two sisters, Wendy (Merle) and Carita (Ray); brother: Gaither Ill; two nieces, Chantell and Shenille; nephew, Cortney and many uncles, aunts, cousins, and friends.
