Connie would like to let you know that her work here is done. She received a call, an offer you can’t refuse, for an appointment from which she will not be returning. This assignment comes with a huge sign on bonus, a reunion with her mother, Doretha Wykoff (Dear), her father, Joseph Parker (Joe), Jr, her brothers, Ronald Parker, Robert Thomas Barnes, sisters Barbara Alpough, Cynthia Parker, beloved nieces, nephews, cousins, a host of family and friends. Her new assignment takes her to a wonderful place where she will be socializing, dancing, singing, and reading to her hearts content.

During her time here she was a firecracker with a smile that lit up a room and an unforgettable laugh. She was born and raised in Port Arthur Texas and was a proud graduate of Lincoln High School. She attended Prairie View A&M University and enjoyed careers in banking and customer service. During different stations of life Connie called Port Arthur, Texas, Norfolk, Va., and Houston, Texas home, but in her heart Spring, Texas was her true home.

The highlight of her life was the birth of her two children, Mandy and Bayne. If you had an hour or two she’d tell story after story about the loves her life, her grandchildren Chase and Avary. After the hour or two, perhaps in the third hour she’d spend time bragging on her son-in-law Calvin Parks. She had the best stories, even if you’d heard them once or twice, you never tired of hearing them again or seeing the pure joy on her face as she told the story.

Connie was a protective sister and leaves her siblings, Gwendolyn Simon, Alvin Parker, Victor Parker, Brenda Senigal, Renee’ Guillory, Don Parker, and Dr. Marilyn Parker to continue sharing the family stories.

She was Auntie Connie to a host of nieces and nephews that she loved dearly and was extremely proud of.

Remember, it’s not good bye, it’s until we meet again she got an offer for eternal life and it was an offer she couldn’t refuse.
