Typhinia “Try” Kim Parker Turner story begins in a town called “Little Boston” on the Eastern Shore of Virginia. Her grandparents, Charlie E. Parker and Marie Heath Parker was so excited when Charlotte A Parker delivered a chunky baby girl. Charlotte named Lucretia as her Godmother because she had named her. Try became the baby of the house. Her siblings Rodney and Ardena welcomed their baby sister. But that’s when the shenanigans began; but of course, “the baby” never got blamed for anything. Mom would say, leave her alone that’s “my baby.” Rodney always took up for his baby sister, whereas Dena would always tease her, but would fight anyone else that even tried picked on her. Try’s father, Obediah Parker played a major part in her life as well. She was definitely their “baby.”

Try attended the public schools of Accomack County, graduating from Nandua High School in 1987. She was known as one of the pillars of the class. After some years passed and fulfilling a promise she made to her mother, Try graduated from the Colorado Technical University. She earned a Bachelor of Science in Business Management. A proud moment for her siblings.

Being reared in a God-fearing home, Typhinia confessed her faith in God early in life and joined the Shiloh Baptist Church in Boston, Virginia. Under the pastorate of Rev. Ronnie T. Northam, Try was one of the first Ambassadors, young adult ushering ministry. In fact, she was their first President. Try loved church! When Pastor Thomas started the 8:00 a.m. service, that’s where you would find her getting her praise on!! Try also wanted to follow in Ma Marie footsteps to become an Eastern Star in the Esther Chapter #22; Celestial Court #1 Royal and Exalted Order of Amaranth; Rehab Court #2 Herione of Jericho; Lady Knights.

Try worked all her life until she became disabled. In the early years, her mom would take Try to the fields with her to pick string beans. However, the farmer asked Charlotte to please not bring Try back because she would scoot down the row on top of the plants and destroy his crop. “The baby” didn’t have to go anymore. In her late teen years, she worked at Burger King and Shore Memorial Hospital in Dietary. She switched careers to work at Perdue Inc. for over 16 years as a Line Leader in Marination. She loved her work crew and always brought gifts for all the staff on holidays. Looking for a new adventure, she got a job at Cobb-Vantress Hatchery in Pocomoke, Maryland. Try worked with a much smaller staff and would share stories of the fun she had with her new friends.
Try’s story wasn’t all about work. If you really knew her, you would know she loved Walmart. She had a big personality and warm smile. She laughed at anything and sometimes screaming to the top of her lungs. Having fun was at the top of her list. She had friends and family over the years that she was very close with. She enjoyed hanging out with Kia and Janet from their childhood years until she started another chapter. She loved her Godchildren Tashawn Lee, Laquinta Harmon and Demion Veeney. She also like to spoil her birthday twin Ta`liyah every chance she had.

Try loved cruising with her cousins, sisters Ovela and Valerie Clifford to numerous islands throughout the years. Her favorite cruise was her 50th Birthday that Dena took her on along with her two cousins. Try said this was the best cruise of her life! Family outings were high up on the list too. She especially enjoyed going to the Parker Girls Cousins Weekend. Dena would plan the fellowship with the first cousins, Monique Williams, Lucretia Parker, Mavis Parker, Tirzah Bonaparte, Sheri Simmons and Sabrina Parker. She loved that special time with family. She also loved spending time with her love George. Both being avid Dallas Cowboys fans, you couldn’t pry them away during a game.

Having fun and keeping in touch with her family was so important. She would talk to Rodney for hours saying he can really, really talk! Try never missed any out of town family events or reunions. Dena would always make the plans and do the driving because she had to be in charge. They formed an even tighter bond after Charlotte passed when Dena promised their mother, she would take care of “the baby.” Dena became her mother-sister, and nothing could separate them. Most importantly, they showed their sisterly love.

This is just a spinet version of Try’s story. She made friends everywhere she went. She’d help anyone she could. Most importantly, her memory will always be with us as she touched our hearts in so many ways. She had a great life and love of many family and friends.

I met Try when she came to work at Cobb-Vantress and we were bonded in Christian love from the very first few minutes of being with her. She was such a loving, caring, funny, spiritual person who I miss sooo much!!! Even though she left Cobb we still stayed in contact and checked on each other via texts. Even though Try worked in the hatchery and I in the main office...she would spend a few days working on paperwork here and that's when my days were heightened with joy and laughter over the simplest things. My heart still can't believe she's gone but I know God had much bigger plans for her far beyond this world! So all can do now is hold on to the precious memories, give thanks to our Heavenly Father for allowing our paths to cross and look forward to the day when we will all be together again!!!
May the family and loved ones feel God's loving arms around them as we say farewell to our dear friend and SiC!!!
