Parker Sr., siblings Frederick D Parker, Mary Rose Parker, Kate E Parker, James E Parker, Frances O Parker, Louise R Parker, Franklin D Parker, John E Parker, Clarence H Parker, Leon R Parker, and Van Tyrone Parker.

Mother Brooks loved the Lord. As an adult, she served in many capacities at Arm of the Lord Ministries, Fredericksburg VA, and Antioch Christian Center Church, in Richmond VA. She also attended Mt.

She dedicated her life to spreading the Gospel and genuinely showing love to His children. She loved to attend worship services with her family.
