Olivia Parker Obituary

Parker ~ Olivia Pat Forest was born August 4, 1931, in Jacksonville, Florida to the late Jerome and Olivia Forest.  She attended Stanton High School and was a member of Bethel Baptist Institutional Church.

In June of 1951, at the tender age of twenty, Olivia married the love of her life, David E. Parker. David served in the U S Army for twenty-two years, that took Olivia to Fort Campbell, Fort Bragg, Fort Jackson, Fort Benning and to Germany; where there two children, David & Dena were born.

After David’s death in 1974, Olivia started a career in retail at May Cohen’s where she made many friends!  She was herself a fashion statement in her own right.  Olivia enjoyed sewing, and believe it or not, one year for Christmas bought herself an Xbox. She also did word search & crossword books to keep her mind active. Olivia was also a Foster Parent for a number of children in that season of her life.

She leaves to cherish her memory, son, David Parker; daughter, Dena Parker;  she also raised her grandson, Patrick; a host of grandchildren; brothers, Bruce & Kim Forest; sister, Michelle Harris; nephews, nieces, cousins and a host of extended family and friends.
