Abigail "Abby" Wilson

July 1, 1939 — March 18, 2024

Abigail “Abby” Parsons Wilson, aged 84, died peacefully March 18, 2024. A memorial service will be held Saturday, April 6, 2024 at 2:00PM at St. Gregory’s Anglican Church, in Mansfield, Texas.

Abby was born July 1, 1939 in Evanston, Illinois to Esther Waterhouse Parsons and Charles Warren Parsons. She had one sister, Mary Parsons Papp. Abby spent her childhood living in Evanston, Illinois, and loved spending her summers in Rye, New Hampshire, with many happy memories and moments at Rye Beach.

Abby attended the University of Colorado and Wheelock College, and then ventured into a career with Eastern Airlines, first as a flight attendant and eventually as a flight attendant instructor. It was during this time that she met her husband of 45 years, Rollin Hugh Wilson. Once married, they settled in Marcellus, New York and then relocated to Texas; living in Arlington and then moving to Mansfield in 1976.

Once her children were in school, Abby restarted her career, working for the Texas Rangers baseball team, the Trammell Crow Company, and finally moving into the healthcare field at Texas South Hospital.

She supported and was involved with many different organizations and was the ultimate example of volunteerism and giving back. She was a “Golden Girl” with over 50 years of service with PEO International and was passionate about her work with her therapy dogs, Duke and Duchess, through the Pet Partners organization. Her deep relationship with God led her to be involved in many activities through her church throughout the years. Along with her husband Rollin, she was one of the charter members of St. Gregory’s Episcopal Church (now St. Gregory’s Anglican Church) holding the first service in their home.

Abby loved spending time with her grandchildren and great-grandchildren and enjoyed entertaining, bringing family and friends together for love and laughter.

Abby is preceded in death by her husband Rollin Hugh Wilson.

She leaves behind to cherish her memory, children Holly Wilson Mayer, Rollin Hugh Wilson Jr. and Cheryl Abigail Wilson; grandchildren Chris Wilson, Cristine Mayer Timko, Abby Mayer Frederick and Matt Mayer; great-grandchildren Colby Wilson, Teddy and Graham Timko, Harper and Hattie Frederick, and numerous extended family and friends.

The family would like to thank the many friends and family who supported and cared for Abby through her courageous journey with cancer over the last few years.

In lieu of flowers donations may be made to St. Gregory’s Anglican Church.
