    She was born on June 30, 1934 in Baltimore, MD to the late Auline C. and Percy Lawrence Parker.  Bitty’s name was a combination of her parents’ names.  She grew up on Lauretta Avenue in West Baltimore.  Bitty worked at the Lord Baltimore as a hotel clerk.  Mrs. Fabian moved to Pasadena in 1957.After her husband’s passing in 1970 Bitty raised four children, getting 3 of them through college.  She always thought that getting an education was the most important thing one could do.   She worked for JP Fuller for over 30 years and could rattle of part numbers for chain saws and lawnmowers better than anyone.

    Bitty’s love of traveling took her cruising from Alaska to the Caribbean.  She enjoyed baking gingersnaps for her friends, which was one of her specialties.  After her son Mike’s passing she developed a fondness for playing Bingo at Lake Shore Fire Hall.  Bitty was always up for a trip to Harrington to visit with her sister Janet and play slots together.  She was always up for a an adventure, whether it was duck boating in Baltimore, Climbing the Statue of Liberty, or wrapping a snake around her neck in Florida.  Bitty was an avid O’s fan.  Her last game was the statue unveiling of Cal Ripken.  Bitty was a devoted Jeopardy fan.  Bitty, Dave and Laura would play along with the contestants during dinner.   She attended Community United Methodist Church and had many close friends among the parishioners.  She was proud that she attended cardio rehab three times a week and counted her 11 am group as family.  Bitty was loved by all that she met and will be missed by all.
