On August 17, 2019, the Lord stretched out his arms and said, "Come to me," and Hazel Colleene Parks Barger, his faithful servant went to be with her Lord and Savior.

Hazel was born in Boughton, Arkansas on January 26, 1931 to Jesse Earl Parks and Una Mauree Shirley Parks.

She grew up in Prescott, Arkansas and there she met and married the man of her dreams, Paul Barger. They married September 4, 1949 and had Pam Barger Reed on September 5, 1950. In 1952, Hazel, Paul and Pam moved to Irving, Texas and in 1954, Brenda joined the family. Hazel and Paul raised their girls there and lived in Irving until 2017 when they moved to Rockwall. Hazel had many friends in Irving through her various jobs and through church.

Hazel is preceded in death by her parents, her granddaughter, Lindsay Rae Bingham, and her brother Jesse Parks, Jr.

Hazel is survived by her loving husband of almost 70 years, Paul Hirst Barger and daughters Pam and her husband, Allen Reed and Brenda and her husband Kurt Bingham. She is survived by her grandchildren Kenneth Reeves and his wife Lara, Misty Reed Demas and her husband Matthew, Amanda Reed Wardojo and her husband Erwin, Summer Reed Lunsford and her husband John, Bryan Bingham and his wife Stephanie, Brent Bingham and his wife Elizabeth and Brad Bingham. Her surviving great grandchildren are Kamryn Bingham, Juliette Demas, Lauren Bingham, Allison Wardojo, Lynette Demas, Madison Lunsford, Emory Demas, Caleb Wardojo, Lillian Lunsford, and Rhett Bingham; sisters, Shirley Parks Hooks, husband Hershel, Nelda Parks Haynes Conway West; and many sweet nieces and nephews..

Sorry to read about Hazel’s death.  My mother, Melba, was Hazel’s aunt through her mother.  I think I met Hazel once when I was a little girl.  Again, many sympathies extended from us.

Dear Brenda, I remember when my mother died at age 97, the feeling of great loss but also of gratitude that her earthly struggles were over and that she was safely held in the arms of our Lord.  I’m praying that you take comfort in that same knowledge.  Blessings.....Joan Swanson
