Parsons children education fund

Being a fellow employee and friend with Chad at Tri City Glass and Door, I have seen first-hand how cancer can affect a family, even a family whose faith was so strong like the Parson’s. Many of us still want to help but don’t know how. Abundant and continued prayers are always welcome, giving them continuous strength and faith. If you have it in your heart and are able to help support them financially, a fund is being established. All proceeds will be used to help continue the education of the children and pay medical bills. Please read about Jill as her family celebrated the love that she has given to so many in her short 39 years on earth. She will be missed by many but especially her loving family, Chad and their three amazing children.


Jill Nicole (Ehrenberg) Parsons, age 39, of Appleton, Wisconsin, arrived in her heavenly home after her 7 year battle with cancer on Sunday September 17, 2017. Jill was the first of two children born to Robert and Lori Ehrenberg and was raised in Weyauwega, Wisconsin. She enjoyed dancing, cheerleading and reading. She graduated from Fox Valley Lutheran High School in 1996 where she was Captain of the FVL Pom Squad and where she first met the love of her life, Chad Michael Parsons. The high school sweethearts were married at St. Peter Lutheran Church in Weyauwega on September 8, 2001.


In 2003, Chad and Jill experienced a tragedy during her first pregnancy with identical twin boys, Caden Michael and Cameron Robert, and the Lord decided to take the babies home to heaven. The couple was blessed with a baby girl, Savannah Joy on July 12, 2005 and another set of twins, Leah Elizabeth and Logan Michael on July 31, 2007. The family enjoyed playing games together, watching football and spending quality time as a family.


Jill’s big, beautiful brown eyes could light up any room and she always had a smile on her face,faith in her heart, and she put others before herself. She lived life with so much passion, positivity, love and grace. She was a big fan of the Green Bay Packers, country music, local group Boogie and the Yoyoz, and a lifetime fan of the boy band New Kids on the Block.


Jill was an inspiration to all and a fighter until the end. She lived each day to her best, keeping faith in God and her spirits up as a wife, mother, daughter, friend, cheerleading coach, receptionist, and a volunteer at Riverview Lutheran School. There are no words to describe her strength, courage and endurance during her fight against cancer.
