Mary Hawley ParkerMary Hawley Parker was a beautiful woman @ the age of 80 with perfect skin and hardly a wrinkle. She was born on August 6, 1938 and raised in Albuquerque New Mexico where she learned to make her famous red chili enchiladas and green chili stew. She left her life in Arlington Texas to dance on the streets of gold with her Lord and Savior Christ Jesus on September 15, 2018.
She followed in her parents footsteps by staying in the bowling business for many years. That life led to managing a bowling center in Grand Prairie Texas and touring with the Professional Bowlers Association. From there she went onto many different endeavors that brought her joy and adventure. One of her greatest joys in life were her 7 grandchildren Dee Dee, Jordyn, David, Jamey, Dalton, Dillon and Brodie and her 2 great grandchildren Easton and Dallas as well as her half daughter Kimberly. That only came second to her fierce love for her 2 children Holly and Bill.
When she had the opportunity, she loved spending time with her siblings Richard and his wife Rosalie, Theresa and her husband Gerald, Clifford and his wife Kathy, Allen and Walter and dozens (literally) of nieces and nephews as well as her BFF's Kay, Laverne and her husband Melvin, Beverly and Nicki. However she terribly missed those who went before her, her parents Tom and Jo, her very dear cousin Virginia and very near and dear to her heart Bill and LaNelle. Her Celebration of Life service will be held on Monday September 24, 2018 at 4PM at the Vine Fellowship Church located at 5229 Kelly Elliott Rd Arlington Texas 76017
