Death of retired pastor’s wife

We were saddened to learn of the recent death of Jane Parsons, wife of Sonny Parsons, who for many years pastored the GCI congregation in Big Sandy, TX (click here for a profile of the couple published in 2014 and here for a story about Jane published earlier this year). Here is an announcement concerning Jane’s death from Jerome Ellard, who now pastors the Big Sandy church:

Sonny and Jane

  1. Sonny and Jane’s work in Christ’s ministry has been exemplary. We have been best friends from Junior High through college and our years in ministry. Jane was a true servant both in and outside of our church. She even gave my son, Paul David, his name! My wife, Pat, considered Jane to be here very best friend she ever had. She will be missed. May God’s peace be with Sonny and the family. PK

  2. Dear Sonny,

    Our thoughts and prayers are with you. The void you must be feeling not having Jane at your side must at times seem unbearable. And yet, as Christians, we have been given a certain hope and promise that the pain of separation will be overcome by the wonderful joy we will all experience when we sit with our loved ones and our Lord at that Great Banquet yet to come. What a celebration that will be! Until that time be strong and of good courage. God loves you and he will surely provide.

    Our sincere condolences to all the family and friends.

    In Him,
    Santiago and Elke

  3. Sonny, Sue and I celebrate Jane’s life with you, as well as mourn her passing from this life. Even as she was subject to a long time of suffering, I was amazed at how she always turned the conversation back to the other person, and I always left her presence feeling blessed.

  4. Sonny, I remember working with you folks in Pasadena, and then in Big Sandy from Pasadena. It was always a pleasure interacting with you and Jane. We pray 2018 smiles on you as you grieve and adjust, and some joy can be found in the holidays.
    Love in HIM JR & Hazel

    The San Antonio congregation sends their blessings and prayers to you. Jane is no longer suffering. We have great memories of the two of you and your service here in San Antonio. Jane was always friendly and smiling when you saw her.
    Love your San Antonio Family
