On the morning of August 16th, 2018 Dorothy Evelyn (Bumby) Parrish
slipped away quietly and taking the hand of a loving God went to
Live in Paradise forever.
Dorothy was born in 1926 in Kissimmee Fla, the eldest child of Jack and Sally Evelyn Bumby.
Her siblings Betty Jo Wraschek and William Haynes Bumby preceded her in death as did her
husband of 68 years, Vernon Edgar Parrish. She is survived by her daughter Judy Evelyn
(Parrish) Boyte, and son-in-law, Robert Boyte Jr, of Orlando, her son, John Stephen Parrish of
Windermere Fl., three grandchildren Rob Boyte and Dana Boyte of Orlando Fl., and Jon Parrish
of Clermont Fla, also one great grandchild, Peyton Parrish.
A lifelong Methodist, Dorothy first was active in First Methodist Church of Winter Garden and
then later was a member of Trinity First United Methodist Church of Orlando.
Dorothy retired from the Orange County Public School System after teaching history, political
science and chairing the Social Science department at Apopka Senior High for over twenty
years. She was an avid reader, a voracious Bridge player and a community activist. Her charities
were legion and her donations to causes were many.
Services to remember the life of this remarkable woman are scheduled for 2:00 pm Sept 12th in the sanctuary of the First United Methodist Church of Winter Garden, Fl. 125 N. Lakeview Ave, WG. Phone # (407) 656-1135. Please come help us say good-bye to our mother, a friend and a child of her loving savior assured of her journey home.
