1921 Unknown source
The friends and neighbors of Mrs. Oscar Wright were saddened to hear of her passing away Monday afternoon [January 10, 1921] at her home southwest of Correctionville. She had only been confined to her home for a few days and death came rather unexpectedly.

Addie Pearl Parks was born in Danbury, Iowa, June 24, 1894 and passed away at her home south of Correctionville January 10, 1921, being at the time of her death 26 years, six months and 17 days of age. When a little girl of 12 years she with her mother and sisters moved to Correctionville where she grew to womanhood.

June 26, 1912 she was united in marriage to Oscar Wright at Sioux City, Iowa, after which they removed to the farm where they have since resided. To them was born one son, George, who survives her. Besides her husband and little son she leaves her mother, Mrs. Mary Parks, her father having preceded her to the Great Beyond a number of years ago. She also leaves six sisters and two brothers. They are: Mrs. Olive Jarman [sic, Jermann], of Remsen, Mrs. Nettie Watson of Canova, S.D.; Mrs. Mae Warn of Battle Creek, Mrs. Cora Leetch of Danbury, Mrs. Cleo Utesch and Mrs. Alice Cohrt of Correctionville, William Parks of Portland, Ore., Arthur Parks of LeMars, who mourn her untimely death. The illness which resulted in her death extended back nearly five years, being tuberculosis.

She was a very kind and affectionate in disposition, a loving mother and an affectionate wife. It seems most sad that this beautiful young life should be taken, but God in his wisdom knows best. She was conscious to the last and told the loved ones that all was well with her. May the memory of the passing of this wife and mother remain with the family, and may the little seven-year-old son who is left, emulate the character of the mother who has taught him so many beautiful lessons. The sympathy of the entire community is with the family in their sad bereavement. The funeral services were held Wednesday afternoon at 2 o'clock from the M.E. church, Rev. E.T. Gerkin officiating, and the remains were interred in the Correctionville cemetery.

All of the out-of-town sisters and one brother attended the funeral, the brother at Portland, Ore., being unable to attend. Mr. and Mrs. J. B. Wright of Sioux City, and Mr. and Mr. Carl Heppner and daughter Roma of Remsen also attended the funeral.
