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.
