Whitney Nicole Parton, 28, of Muskogee, Oklahoma entered her heavenly home on Saturday, January 26, 2020 in Muskogee, Oklahoma. She was born in Springfield, Missouri to Nicky Allen Parton and Melanie Ann (Warren) Capps on December 10, 1991. Whitney attended and graduated from Hilldale High School Class of 2010, and Indian Capital Technology Center with her Hospitality Certification. She also received 3 certifications as a cake decorator though Hobby Lobby and attained her Activities Director Certification through Pleasant Valley in September 2018.
Whitney loved everybody, she had a giving heart and a sweet spirit. She was selfless, brave, independent, and loved to laugh. She saw the best in everyone, and her smile was contagious. She had a special love for children and loved to babysit. She loved to travel and take adventures and was able to take her dream vacation, to Jamaica, two years ago with family. She loved to hunt and fish to make memories. Two of her favorite memories were turkey hunting with her uncle Toby and Granny Loretta and deer hunting with her stepfather Chuck. Whitney loved to decorate cakes and cupcakes for family birthdays. She loved spending time with family and friends. She loved playing cards and games. She cherished her relationships with her nephew Talon, niece Addie, her siblings and she had an unbreakable bond with her sister Emily, who was her best friend and confidant. Whitney loved music and going to concerts. Her all-time favorite was the Swon Brothers, and she never missed a close concert. Colton and Zack Swon were very special friends to her from High School and she was their biggest fan. Whitney also had a love for dogs. She rescued her little buddy Tator in 2014 and spent every day with him by her side. Whitney loved the Lord and shared her love for him with everyone. She loved to volunteer and show God’s love through her. She did volunteer work at the Gospel Rescue Mission, Divine Love Christian Fellowship, Freedom Seekers Ministry, she taught missionettes at New Hope Assembly of God and was the Youth Pastor at Keefeton Assembly of God. Her volunteering led her to Pleasant Valley Health Care Center, volunteering in the activities department, and was then asked to take a job in activities. She quickly worked her way up to the Activity Director, but her work was never a job to her, she truly loved what she did, and loved all her residents and work family. Whitney had prayed for a special someone and met the love of her life last year. Hootie treated Whitney like the queen she was, and she loved him dearly. Whitney got to experience true genuine love. She enjoyed spending quality time with Hootie and his family. Whitney had a recent Facebook post, “Who are you according to your name? “That described her perfectly. “She was a beautiful force and an even more beautiful soul. She encourages others with genuine love and support, and she makes people believe in themselves when no one else does. She is someone everyone needs in their lives.”
A celebration of Whitney’s life will be 10:00am Saturday, February 1, 2020 at New Hope Assembly of God Church with Bishop Michael Webber, Pastor Mike Gamble, and Pastor Anthony Roe officiating. Interment will follow at Memorial Park Cemetery.
