After fighting the good fight, my loving and beautiful wife of 37 years, Joyce “Joy” Parsons, has moved on to Heaven to see her parents, Charles and Elizabeth Horten; brother, Paul Horten; and sister-in-law, Claudette Horten on Monday, August 10, 2020.

 

Joy was a 1976 graduate of Central High School as well as receiving a degree from Chattanooga State, where she spent the majority of her career working for Cigna.

 

She is survived by her loving husband, Charles “Mike” Parsons; daughter, Dawn Parsons; grand-daughter, Violet Parsons; siblings, Mike (Phyllis) Horten, Stephen Horten, Ann Ford, Theresa (Keith) Rievley, Margaret Horten, Mary (Gregg) Rievley, Jim Horten, and Lynn Parsons; many nieces and nephews who she loved dearly; and several cousins.

 

The family would like to thank Dr. Stephen DePasquale and the staff of Women’s Oncology Group and Hospice of Chattanooga East, and a special thank you to her Cigna family of 27 years for all their continual love, support, messages, flowers, and prayers during this time.

 

A memorial service will be held at 3 p.m. on Saturday, Aug. 15, in the funeral home chapel.

 

In lieu of flowers, contributions can be made to the American Cancer Society at www.cancer.org.
