Mrs. Parks was a type of the pioneer women who helped to build up California. Her death was mourned by a large circle of friends, among whom there are many men and women who had been her scholars when she taught school. She was one of the first school teachers in Butte county. Several of her former scholars are now old men and women, but all remember her as "Aunt Hattie." She was known by this title to everyone in the district and in her dath all feel they have lost an old and tried friend.
