TUESDAY SARAH JOY PARSONSOctober 21, 1991 ~ September 3, 2017 (age 25)
Tuesday Sarah Joy Parsons, 25, passed away Sunday, September 3rd, 2017, in Boise, Idaho.
Tuesday was born October 21, 1991, in Castro Valley, California, to Andrew and Sunday Bender.
Ray and Patty Parsons and family adopted Tuesday on January 31, 2003.
Tuesday attended several elementary schools, Cole Valley Jr. High School, and graduated high school at Idaho Home School Graduation. She continued her education through CWI at BSU receiving an AA degree in Early Childhood Education.
She had a life-long love to help children. During her home school education years, Tuesday spent many hours training at The Little Schoolhouse Preschool for Mark and Buffy Drewett where she learned many valuable lessons and teaching skills. Later Tuesday worked at various local childcare facilities, beginning her full-time career in childcare at BSU Children’s Center followed by Little Luke’s Early Learning Center. She recently transitioned to the Idaho Youth Ranch and continued her passion with the goal of helping children.
Tuesday’s favorite things included writing stories, music, art, anything red, cozy comfy quilts, and snowmobiling. She felt most beautiful in her collection of hats. Along with her nephews, she loved chopping down trees at the cabin. Tuesday was crazy about Disneyland and one of her most enjoyable trips was to Washington DC with her 9th grade class.
Tuesday loved her Lord Jesus Christ and committed her life to Him at an early age. If she was with us today, she would want you to know there truly is a God and He is very real.
Tuesday was blessed with two families and is survived by parents, Andrew Bender and Sunday Corwin, brother Jakob (Jaimie) (nephews Jakob and Kevin), sister, Brittany (Aaron), parents, Ray and Patty Parsons, brother Aaron (Kimra) (nephews Garrett, Carter and Cameron), sister Kellee (Nathan) (niece Elizabeth) and numerous grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins.
"When Someone You Love Becomes a Memory, That Memory Becomes a Treasure.” Tuesday, You are Our Treasure!
Memorial service will be held Tuesday, September 12, 11:00 am, at Ten Mile Christian Church, 3500 West Franklin Road, Meridian, Idaho.
In lieu of flowers the family would appreciate donations to The Idaho Youth Ranch, 5465 Irving St, Boise, Id 83706, to honor Tuesday’s passion for children.
