- Tapestry Home
Pat Parker is the definition of Tapestry—a female role model whose positive activities encompass all aspects of her life. According to her husband, Mac, "She is always an up person, notwithstanding the situation." Parker's positive attitude permeates her life and touches everything she does. Her positive attitude is infectious.
Having lived in the Fort Wayne area for 54 years, she is involved in many activities. She has been a dedicated volunteer: dependable, informed, and eager to take on whatever was needed. Parker was one of the founders of the McMillen Health Center and has served on the board for 27 years. She has served on the board of the Rea Scholarship for 32 years, 16 of those years as chair. She is also on the board of the History Center and has been involved with many organizations, including the Newcomers Club, Junior League of Fort Wayne, Park Center, Community Foundation of Greater Fort Wayne, Inter-Agency Alcohol and Drug Council, the Sister City Committee, First Presbyterian Church Foundation, and Boys and Girls Clubs of Fort Wayne.
Parker has a healthy lifestyle that is reflected in her youthful appearance and outlook. She plays tennis often and is said to be "the first one on and the last one off the slopes." She enjoys planning family get-togethers with daughters Carole, Pam, and Kristi's families, who live in Oregon, Colorado, and California.
She is an inspiration to all who know her—one extraordinary woman!
