Martha M. “Meg” Parker
1926 ∼ 2018
Martha Mary “Meg” Parker, 91, of Falmouth and Yarmouthport, formerly of Stamford, CT, passed away July 3, 2018 in Sandwich, MA.
Meg was awesome. We’re talking one in a million, my friends. She was the mother of seven ridiculously attractive children, twelve grandchildren, and seven great grandchildren. She loved them all with everything she had. Meg was married to the love of her life the late Bruce “Ace of Hearts” Parker for 63 incredible years. She was a registered nurse who had a heart as big as the sun. She taught her kids how to have fun, how to be kind, and how to shop like nobody’s business. Meg was renowned for her quick wit, ready smile, never wearing the same outfit twice, and somehow winning EVERY hand of gin rummy. Bottom line, my friends, Meg Parker was the life of the party, lit up every room she entered, and is missed so wholly and completely that it really- really hurts right now. But she taught us to pull ourselves up by our bootstraps. And we will do just that. Momma, we love you dearly and we’re so ecstatic you and Ace are finally back together again. Thank you for being the most extraordinary and inspiring mother ever.
Meg is survived by her children; Susan Gager and her husband David of MA, Bob Parker and his wife Pam of MA, Paul Parker and his wife Pamelia of CT, Mark Parker and his wife Kathy of OR, Betsy Parker of NY, Stephen Parker and his wife Sirimon of MA and Chris Parker and his wife Myung of CA; her dear sisters Paula O’Gara, Ann McGovern, and Joyce Barnicle; her many nieces and nephews, and countless dear friends also survive Meg.
