Obituary

On March 18, 1940, Sister Peacola Bateast Parker was born to the late Walter Bateast, Sr. and Beaulah Ford Payton Bateast. She was the youngest of sixteen children. At an early age, Peacola was called and baptized at Saint Matthew Baptist Church under the leadership of the late Rev. Cleveland Veals. She later united with First Agape Baptist Church and helped a group of disciples, along with the Pastor, organize Cosmopolitan Evangelistic Baptist Church. She served dutifully in the roles assigned to her at both churches. Peacola's start to education was somewhat of a trying one. Between having all of the school children grouped together by age proximity, teachers having limited resources and days missed during harvest season, she was determined to keep up. Not deterred and with God's grace, she graduated high school. After graduation, Peacola knew that her work wasn't complete. Remembering the struggles she and her siblings endured to get quality education, she, along with four others, decided to become educators. To pursue that route, Peacola enrolled at Alcorn State University where she obtained a Bachelor's degree in Education. It was after that time that she moved to New Orleans to start her career. Her pursuit of higher learning was never put aside. On weeknights after work, she would drive to Baton Rouge to attend graduate school at Southern University. While taking care of family and educating others, she obtained her Master's +30 in Education. During her journey as an educator, Peacola worked for Meadows Drawn Business School, the St. Bernard Parish School System and over twenty-five plus years in the Plaquemines Parish School System as the head of the Business Education Department at Phoenix High School. She continuously met the challenge to ensure that no child was left behind. On Tuesday November 4, 2020, Peacola's earthly life ended and she went to rest with our heavenly father. There are three steps to heaven: Out of self; Into Christ; Into Glory. Peacola did her best for her Lord throughout her life by living an exemplary Christian life for all who paid attention, especially her family. And for this, we know that she is reaping her greatest reward. Sis Parker was married twice and to each union, one daughter was born. To cherish her memories, she leaves two daughters, Edith M. Baker and Linitta P. Lewis; two grandchildren, Jazzmyne Piccola Lewis and Isaiah Christopher Lewis;, one sister-in-law, Barbara Bateast; one brother-in-law, Ralph Palmer, Sr; one sister, Dorothy B. Singleton;, one Godchild, Rolanda P. (Dexter) Walker:, a special niece, Ramona Palmer and a host of nieces and nephews that she loved dearly, other relatives and friends. In addition to her parents, Sister Parker was also preceded in death by her brothers, William (Louise), Levi, James (Rosa Lee), Cleveland, Walter, Jr. (Mattie), Solomon Bateast, and John (Elouise) Payton; brother in law, Clark Singleton; sisters, Amanda (Nathaniel) Brown, Elnora (Rev)Turner, Lucy (Frank) McDaniel, Leola (Elmore) Plain, Alice (George, Sr.) Lee, Lucy (Edward) Bell, Margaret Palmer and her husband s, Henry W. Baker and Fred C. Parker. A Funeral Service honoring the life of Mrs. Peacola Bateast Parker will be held at Franklin Avenue Baptist Church, 2515 Franklin Avenue, New Orleans, LA on Friday, November 13, 2020 at 12:00 noon. Interment Mount Olivet Cemetery. Visitation 11 a.m. in the church.
