William Parker Obituary
Parker, William "Bill"

William (Bill) N. Parker, age 72, of Waupaca, WI peacefully passed away on Wednesday, April 30, 2014 at Riverside Medical Center in Waupaca surrounded by his family. Bill was born in Mondovi, WI on April 1, 1942, the son of the late Willis and Margaret (Rosenthal) Parker. On September 5, 1964 Bill married Benita "Be" Moy in Mondovi. Bill worked 20 years in Mondovi as the Buffalo Memorial Hospital & Nursing Home Administrator. In 1985, Bill and family moved to Waupaca where he became the Administrator at Bethany Home for 20 years before retiring. He is a member of Trinity Lutheran Church where he was active in the Men's Choir. Bill was formerly active in the Waupaca Rotary Club and the Waupaca Kiwanis Club. He served on the Waupaca City Council for 20 years; 15 years as the president. Bill is survived by his wife: Benita "Be" Parker, Waupaca, WI; his children: Leah (Jon) Maves, Amherst, WI and Brent (Val) Parker, Waupaca, WI; his two granddaughters: Karlee & Makena Maves; a brother: Gerald (Bob) Parker, Waupaca, WI; his sisters-in-law: Amy (Rev. Dave) Whelan, Menomonie, WI; Dawn (John) Marten, Howards Grove, WI; Mari (Greg) Lunderville, Mondovi, WI, a very special "Sister"; Nolene (Fred) Harlson, Altoona, WI., several nieces , nephews, and cousins.

Though he will be missed very much, there is much comfort in knowing he is at peace, no longer in pain, and with Jesus. He loved his wife, family, and friends. Bill was generously blessed with the care he received in the last hours of life both by the RMC medical staff and pastoral partners who accompanied us through his final hours. We love you, Dad!

Visitation will be on Tuesday evening from 5 to 8 PM at the Holly Funeral Home in Waupaca continuing on Wednesday morning from 10 AM until the time of service at the church.
