Devin Lee Parsons, 12, of Greensburg, passed away on June 3, 2011. He was born on April 17, 1999 in Greensburg.

Devin was a loving and caring Big Brother-the "Protector", as his little sister called him. He loved fishing with his Papaw and taking walks with his Mamaw. He was an outdoorsy kind of boy, playing basketball, football, fishing, and hunting. He was a member of the Clarksburg Covenant Church. Almost, every Sunday, he got his little sister and brother, ready for church, and they waited for the church bus to pick them up. Devin attended the Greensburg Elementary School. He loved his friends and teachers.

Devin will be sadly missed and never forgotten by: his little sister- Paige, his little brother- Nathan, Grandparents- Jeannie and Kevin Welsh, and several Aunts, Uncles, and Cousins.

A Funeral Service will take place on Thursday, June 16, 2011 at 1:00 p.m. at the Community Church of Greensburg. Pastor Dave Steidel will be officiating.

Burial will take place at the St. Mary's Catholic Cemetery with a committal service by Msgr. Harold Knueven.

Greensburg mom accused of beating son, 12, to death:

Greensburg -- An Indiana mother faces murder charges after, police said, she fatally beat her 12-year-old son for taking prescription pills and refusing to tell her where they were.

The Decatur County prosecutor's office filed the charges Monday against Tasha M. Parsons, 29, Greensburg.

Police said Parsons told them she beat Devin Parsons for hours with her hands, feet, a belt and a metal tray before the boy lapsed into unconsciousness Friday. His body was found in a bedroom in their home that afternoon.

Police also have charged Waldo L. Jones with endangering the life or health of a dependent.

Authorities said Jones lives with Parsons and was present during parts of the attack. Court documents said he helped clean the child's wounds but never sought help for the boy.
