CLEARWATER, Fla. - Dorothy C. (Thomas) Parsons, formerly of Burlington and Swanton, and of Clearwater, Fla., died at Green Mountain Nursing Home in Colchester on Monday, July 1, 2002, following several years of failing health. She was born in Jeffersonville on Jan. 26, 1914, the daughter of Lawrence and Etta (Davis) Thomas.
Dorothy graduated from Cambridge High School in 1930, and received her BS degree in home economics from the University of Vermont in 1934. On Jan. 21, 1935, she married Stanton A. Parsons in the Parsonage of The First Congregational Church in Burlington. In Burlington, during the early years of their marriage, Dorothy and Stanton won trophies for their Victory Gardens, and Dorothy was a Cub Scout leader.

After they returned to Burlington in 1960, Dorothy worked at the UVM Dairy Bar, enrolled again at UVM and earned certification to teach, and then taught home economics at Mount Mansfield Union High School for several years.
