On November 25, 2020, God sent archangel Michael to guide the soul a loving, sweet, kind and compassionate angel to the golden gates of heaven. And when they arrived, God said “Well done my good and faithful servant”.
Bertha (Stanley) Parker, the daughter of the late Deacon Joseph Stanley and late Mary J. Stanley, was born in Conway, S.C. on March 9, 1933. Bertha, or “Muh” as she was affectionally known by everyone, grew up in the Oak Grove Community and received her education in Horry County public schools. Muh furthered her education and received her certification as a Nurses Aid from Bridgeport School of Nursing in Bridgeport, Conn. Bertha worked many years as a Nurses Aid for Norwalk Hospital until she and her family relocated to Conway in 1970. She then worked as a seamstress at Aberdeen Manufacturing until retirement.
Muh converted her life at an early age and joined Oak Grove Missionary Baptist Church, where she served as a dedicated member of the Jubilee Choir, Missionary Society (President) and Sunday School teacher. Muh was a loving wife to William H. (Buddy) Parker who preceded her in death, a sweet, kind and compassionate mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, and great-great grandmother, and great, great, great grandmother.

Parker Jr. (Janice). Muh and Buddy soon expanded their family nest with their grandchildren, Bobby (deceased) Alicia (Lisa), Miranda, and Messiah (Pee Wee), Justin (Jett) and Brandon.
