Mrs. Myrtle Parks died at St. Joseph's Hospital on Friday evening May 26, 1922. Deceased had not been well for some time past, but finally concluded to secure medical attendance and was taken to the hospital during the afternoon of Friday, where an immediate operation for an abscess was found necessary, but passed away soon after. She was the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Willis Boardman (both deceased) and was born at Rochester, Minn. on Oct. 28, 1877, coming the Thorp, Clark County, Wis. soon after, where the family has almost continuously resided since. On Oct. 2, 1895 she was united in marriage to Woodley S. Parks, who preceded her in death on Jan. 2, 1918. To this union one daughter, now Mrs. Paul Tormey, and one son, William, were born, who are left to mourn. She also leaves four brothers, Ernest R., Ervin S., Vern P. and Verdell S. Boardman, all residents of the town of Thorp, and two sisters, Mrs. M. J. Lubner and Mrs. Carl Hansen of St. Charles, Ill. For many years Mrs. Parks had been a member of Mayflower Rebekah Lodge, of this village and the Eastern Star Lodge of Stanley, and many of the members accompanied her remains to the grave.

Since the death of her husband, deceased has been a member of the Thorp Public Library Board and served as librarian in which work she took a deep interest.

The funeral which was largely attended, was held from the home in this village on Monday afternoon, Rev. George E. Crow of Colby, and Rev. F. G. Elwick of Thorp officiating. Burial took place in the Thorp Village Cemetery.
