Barbara F. Parks

Barbara F. Parks
Snow Hill

Barbara F. Parks, 86, of Snow Hill, was born on April 9, 1938. She was called home to be with our Lord and Savior on June 6, 2024. She passed away at Hartley Nursing and Rehab in Pocomoke due to natural causes.

While we are saddened by her passing, we take comfort in knowing she has gone to a better place. A place with no more sorrow or pain. Just everlasting joy in the arms of our Lord.

Barbara was born in Snow Hill, and was the daughter of the late Albert Dozy Fooks and Beatrice Hammond Fooks.

She was the youngest of seven children. She was preceded in death by her brothers, Albert Dozy Fooks Jr. and William Hartwell Fooks; and sisters, Rosalie Atkinson, Martha Quillen, Mary Age, and Alberta Lynch.

Barbara is survived by her son, James K. Parks III (Toby) and his wife, Sue, and two grandsons, Shane and Aidan Parks, all of Berlin; and several nieces and nephews and their families.

She spent her childhood on a little farm in Snow Hill where she found her love for animals. Strays would always find her and she would gladly take them in, nurse them to health, and give them a home.

She was employed with Moore Business Forms of Snow Hill from a young age until its closing in 1994. She worked several other jobs after that until she was ready to enjoy her retirement. A retirement that was well earned as she had worked a very demanding job, all while being a single parent.

She will be greatly missed by her son, daughter-in-law and grandsons, whom she cherished; her extended family; and friends she had grown close to along the way.

Barbara requested that there be no public viewing or memorial service.

Arrangements are in the care of The Burbage Funeral Home in Berlin.
