Barbara Parker

Barbara Charlotte Parker, 70, of Sweet Home died at her home Aug. 1, 2007.

She was born in Lebanon, but lived her whole life in Sweet Home, where her family homesteaded.

Mrs. Parker worked as a beautician, a police reserve officer in the 1980s, as a mill worker at Duraflake in Albany and for White’s Electronics for many years.

She was a hard worker wherever she worked and provided well for her family.

She was also an artist and photographer. She loved the ocean, deep sea fishing and beachcombing. In her younger years she was a member of the American Veterans Auxiliary and the Sweet Home Elks Club.

Mrs. Parker is survived by one daughter, Deborah Angel Green of Bullhead, Ariz.; two grandchildren; four great-grandchildren; two sisters, Beverly Schafer of Portland and Virginia Strickler of Sweet Home; and many family members and generations everywhere.
