Her caring, compassion, and competence made Betsy a great and inspirational teacher and a warm and wonderful person who loved language, literature, and music and brought warmth wherever she went. Betsy always chose to light a candle rather than curse the darkness and her candlelight shined brightly, making the world better by her leadership and love. Rest In Peace, Miss Parsons.

Miss Parsons as I have to much respect for her as my English teacher at Portland High School, to call her anything else she even helped the struggling kids in her class .she will be missed God Bless her

Our thoughts and prayers are with Dr. and Mrs. Parsons and all of Betsy's siblings and extended family. We know how hard it is to lose your oldest daughter and sister. May God bless you and comfort you knowing Betsy is with our Lord Jesus Christ. Keep her in your heart until you meet again.
