McAllen, TX - Dorothy Oyer Parsons, age 95, went to be with our Lord on Friday, May 11, 2018, at Pax Villa Hospice in McAllen.

She was a true gift of God and exemplified the meaning of her name. She was the only one in her family to complete a university degree in her 30s. She then was a single missionary in Panama before meeting her husband, Herman "Hap" Parsons, a Pearl Harbor Veteran, in dental school, after which they embarked on a missionary journey together to Mexico, Papua New Guinea, Australia, and later again throughout Mexico. She was a true model of strength, faith, integrity, grace, determination, courage, and persistence. She had the heart of a true servant and spent her life giving of herself and ministering to others. Along with her husband, she shared God's love with all and impacted all who met her. She was a prayer warrior and a rare woman in this world who touched the lives of many across the globe.

She is preceded in death by her loving husband of 54 years, Herman "Hap" Parsons; 4 brothers, 3 sisters, including her twin sister, as well as 3 siblings who passed away in infancy.

Dorothy is survived by her daughter, Pamela T. Parsons; brother, Merle Oyer and numerous extended family and friends.
