JoAnn (Perkins) Parsons

May 20, 1960 ~ April 14, 2018 (age 57)

Mrs. JoAnn Perkins Parsons, age 57, of Marion, passed away unexpectedly on Saturday, April 14, 2018.  A daughter of the late Thomas Lee and Hilda Melonson Perkins, JoAnn was born in Beaumont, Texas on May 20, 1960.  She was the undeniable rock for her entire family and her strong character and fierce loyalty to her loved ones was obvious.  For many years she administered the Animal Outreach Program in McDowell County which sought to find good homes for needy canine and feline companions.  She took this appointment seriously and her commitment to the well-being of the animals in her charge was unwavering.  She made friends easily and those friends and family that knew and loved this dear saint will miss her very much.


JoAnn leaves behind her husband of 40 years, Joey G. Parsons, of the home; two daughters, Bambi Estelle Randall and husband Scott of Black Mountain and Brandi Diane Parsons and fiancé Mitchell Gilliam of Marion; a brother, Anthony Earl Perkins and wife Norma of Vidor, TX and Diane Hidalgo and husband David of Fannette, TX.  Two grandchildren, Gabrielle Smith and Jonathan Parsons also survive her.


A private memorial service will be held at a later time.
