April 6, 1954 ~ July 30, 2022 (age 68)


Sally passed away Saturday, July 30, 2022, surrounded by her family as she went to be with her Lord and Savior. 

She was born in Marfa, TX on April 6, 1954, to Les and Helen Bell. She grew up in Alpine, TX. Eventually, she moved to Marathon, TX where she graduated high school in 1972. In later years, she moved to Del Rio, TX where she then started B&S Services with her husband Bill. She later returned to her roots by expanding the business out to Alpine, TX with the help of her daughter, Connie. 

She was the middle of five girls. She is survived by her four sisters, Frances Byrd of Talkeetna, AK, Leslie Earline Williams (Mike Williams) of Alpine, TX, Helen Joann Garcia (Larry Garcia) of Del Rio, TX, and Celia “Lee” Billings (Kendall Billings) of Sanderson, TX as well as numerous nieces, nephews, and cousins. 

Sally was a loving mother to Connie and Bobby Gooch Jr., his wife Michele. Stepmother to Geri, Christopher, and Matthew Parsons. A Grandmother to Destany, Julia, Vanessa, Ryan, Blake, and Brett Gooch. A great-grandmother to Jaxon Turner and William Proffitt. 

Sally was a beautiful soul, an amazing daughter, sister, mother, grandmother, and friend to all. She was especially passionate about her faith, family, and cruising the Caribbean.

She was welcomed at the gates of Heaven with open arms by her parents Les and Helen Bell, her grandparents Dutch and Celia Acton, her husband William “Bill” Parsons, her nephew Logan Williams, her best friend Beth Martin, and many other loved ones.
