Marjorie E. Parks (nee Hublitz), 94, of Huntsburg, OH passed away peacefully at Blossom Hill Heathcare Residence, Monday evening, December 7th, 2020. She was born in Lakewood, Ohio on January 22nd, 1926 to the late Charles and Lena (Stanfli) Hublitz.
Margie Parks grew up in Westlake, Ohio, with her father and mother, and late sister, Evalyn Hublitz Wingate. Charles Hublitz was an orchardist with apple and peach orchards as well as berries and other fruits and vegetables on his farm in Avon Lake. Margie graduated from Dover High School in Westlake.
Margie married Ted Parks in 1952, and they lived all of their married life on their beautiful Avon Lake property which they lovingly named “Wingwood.” Over the years it became a sanctuary for birds and plants and wildlife of all kinds. Wingwood was a true labor of love for Ted and Margie. They were avid gardeners with large collections of roses and other flowers, as well as massive plantings of fruits and vegetables, nut trees and pines. A visit to Wingwood was always a treat to the senses…the visual beauty, the natural fragrance, the taste of freshness, and the sounds of their winged friends…
After the passing of her husband, Ted Parks, in 1994, Margie moved to Chardon, Ohio to be near her sister and nieces and nephews. In Chardon, she lived in a cottage on the property of Bob and Linda (Margie’s niece) Sage, of Sages Apples Farm. It didn’t take long before Margie had her porch filled with gorgeous potted plants and flowers and bird feeders inviting just about every species of bird that lives in Ohio ! Many people wondered if the birds from ‘Wingwood’ had discovered Margie’s new residence in Chardon..
Margie had many passions. In fact, it would be difficult to find a topic that she didn’t have some knowledge of. If she had a conversation with someone about a topic she felt she lacked understanding in, she would spend the next weeks searching for information on that topic until she felt satisfied. Margie was always thankful for the Chardon Library librarians who kindly assisted her in her topic investigations…
Margie was a lifetime member of the Natural Hygiene Society. Over many decades, she helped scores of people restore their lives and health through good nutrition and a natural treatment of disease.
Birds and flowers were two of her passions. Many residents in Chardon were the recipients of her bouquets which she lovingly arranged for friends and businesses which she frequented. Sunflower bouquets in her later years were the flowers she was most famous for. She spent many summer mornings gathering buckets of flowers and arranging them with specific people in mind.
Margie loved frequenting The Holden Arboretum, the Chardon Public Library, Geauga Parks, and ‘For The Birds’ bird feeding shop…
Margie’s love for all of creation stemmed from her love and faith in God Himself. In her younger years, Margie loved to sing and accompany herself on the piano. Although legally blind in her later years, listening to hymns and spiritual songs brought her great joy and comfort as she looked to the day she would see Jesus face to face...
It is comforting to know she has now been reunited with her loved ones who have gone on before her…
She is preceded in death by: her parents; Charles and Lena Hublitz, husband Ted Parks, newborn son, Stan Charles, and her sister Evalyn Hublitz Wingate.
