We are sad to announce the passing of our mother, Dr. Mae B. Parker on March 13, 2020. Due to the COVID-19 restrictions and state mandates, a public memorial service will be scheduled at a later time. In person visitation, as well, will not take place at this time.

She was preceded in death by her father, Deacon Jesse A. Reese and oldest child, Monica.

Dr. Parker was the daughter of Mother Erma H. Reese and the mother of four children: Pastor Kimberly (Kenny), E. Katrina, Jesse, and Katherine. She was also the grand-mother of two canine grandpups: Champ and Mendi.

Dr. Parker was a trailblazer that believed education was the key to life. She was one of the first African-Americans to teach in the Roanoke Rapids City Schools for nearly 25 years. After retiring as an administrator, she answered her call to the pastorate where she founded The Word in Action Worldwide Ministries in Weldon NC. During her 29 years as a pastor, she authored several books and guides on spiritual and biblical in-sight. Dr. Mae B. Parker was an exceptional, extraordinary, and innovative spiritual leader and advisor, affectionally loved and respected by many locally and worldwide.

Continue to check back on this site regarding updates and how to send sympathy cards and floral arrangements to the family. In lieu of visitation, please express your condolences by calling Mother Erma Reese at 240-630-9352 or sending additional sympathy cards to 2788 Reese’s Store Road, Halifax NC 27839.

Professional, sympathetic, dignified, compassionate care and service entrusted to Ellis D. Jones & Sons Funeral Home. Sympathy Cards & Floral Arrangements may be sent to Ellis D. Jones & Sons Funeral Home 419 Dowd St. Durham NC 27701.

Dr. Mae B. Parker was truly a God-sent leader. We are a House of Worship that through the Divine Plan of God came under her auspices. We are ever grateful for her spiritual guidance and leadership. Her compassion and spiritual gifts were a blessing to us. Now that God has received her unto Himself, her teachings and prophetic words will remain incessantly inscribed in our hearts. May her family find peace in God’s open arms, and may they cherish the labor and toil of this great worker for Jesus. We will love Dr.Parker forever.

Family, my condolences to you. I thank God for the opportunities and experiences He allowed me to have at WIA. The teachings and learning of what God would have us to do and know was truly a blessing. A beautiful woman and servant of the most high God is now with her Daddy. Apostle Mae B. Parker washed my feet. What an example of a humble, faithful and true servant. I will always remember Apostle. My heart is sadden but I now that she is alright now. To be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord. May God's peace and His Holy Spirit comfort you now and in the days to come.
