She was born October 8, 1930 to the late Edward and Clara Johnston Parker, one of five daughters and two brothers in the family. Fay graduated from Samson High School in 1949 and later that year married her high school sweetheart, Aubrey Hidle, Jr. They had a true love story for the next 62 years. They had four sons, Dennis, Douglas, Dallas and Daniel. Her husband and her sons always knew she was the rock of the family. Her love and care was always there for all of them. She made being a housewife and mother an art form. She thought of everyone else first and never of herself. She was simply the best person any of us have ever known. We all adored her.
She was preceded in death by her parents; her husband, Aubrey Hidle, Jr., sons; Douglas and Dallas; grandson, Lee; two brothers; Grover and Obie Parker, sisters; Edna Suggs and Ruby Cooper.
