Obituary for EVELYN M. PARKER
Evelyn Parker, 81, of Saint Leonard, MD passed away on February 25, 2010 at Georgetown University Hospital, Washington, D.C.
On February 22, 1929, when the birds were singing sweetly in the trees, the late Hattie Parker and Daniel Watts, of Calvert County, Maryland produced a song by the name of Evelyn M. Parker who her family passionately called "Ammie" and her friends called her Ms. Evelyn.Ms. Evelyn demanded respect where ever she was present. She was a right wing fighter who believed in the old school principles, respect for other, respect for self, and honor thy GOD, commitment to family, commitment to your job, and most of all show love in your actions. Although Ms. Evelyn chose to be a quiet woman, she spoke out when someone spoke inaccurately. She would immediately say "you do not know what you are talking about", and then she would give them the correct answer or explain the appropriate way something occurred.Ms. Evelyn worshipped and was spiritually fed at Carroll Western United Methodist Church, in Prince Frederick, Maryland. Before her illness, Ms. Evelyn appeared in church faithfully every Sunday. Members who sat in the back knew to leave Ms. Evelyn's favorite seat clear.Ms. Evelyn was educated in the Calvert County, Maryland public schools and she used her knowledge, wisdom, and common sense to educate her family and friends. As stated above, Ms. Evelyn was a right wing fighter, and she showed her unconditional love by encouraging all to use their God given gift, which was to "think". Ms. Evelyn was very proud of her family, and you knew this, because when she spoke of her son's and daughter's accomplishments a smile appeared on her face that lit up the whole room. When Ms. Evelyn smiled - everyone smiled because everything was GOOD.Ms. Evelyn came in this world as a strong and passionate woman and "SHE DID IT HER WAY", while never losing sight of the importance of teaching her family and friends how to love, respect, and honor God, self and others. She understood the true character of a person by their actions not their words.Ms. Evelyn was a devoted mother and friend who was loved and respected by all. She was a wonderful homemaker who enjoyed raising her children and mothering her grandchildren. Everyone knew she was someone you could count on in the time of need. Her service to God and steadfast faith was what she did best.She leaves to cherish memories to nine children, Clifton Gross, Kathy Johnson, Leo Parker, Tracey Parker, Patty Earland (husband Vincent Earland), Darlene Parker, Sharon Parker; Bridgette Mason (husband Garland Mason), and Lynn Taylor (husband Dwight Taylor), three children who preceded her in death, Faith and Tony Parker and Delores Hawkins (husband Sherman Hawkins). Thirty-one grand-children and nine great-grandchildren. As well as one grandchild who preceded her in death, Toshawna Parker.Ms. Evelyn was the youngest of three sisters, and four brothers. She is survived by her sister, Mrs. Elizabeth Willett (husband John Willett), brother, Bishop Robert Watts (wife Beulah-Betty Watts). Deceased brothers and sisters include: George, Charles, and Warren Parker; Bertina Greene, and Catherine Parker. She will be remembered by a host of nephews, nieces, cousins, and friends.
