Parks, Frances Taliaferro  
Frances Taliaferro Parks Counselor and teacher, died peacefully in her home on Saturday, January 24, after a brief illness. She had recently celebrated her 100th birthday in a party at the Log Cabin attended by 150 people who loved and admired her. Miss Parks was born on November 5, 1914 in Newnan, Georgia to Annie Kate Johnson and George Edward Parks. She was the youngest of five children and was especially close to her grandmother, Ella Gay Parks. After moving to Florida, she graduated from Florida State College for Women in 1935 and taught high school history before moving to California in 1939 where she earned a Masters in history at the University of California, Berkeley. During World War II she taught at Campbell High School, but then moved to Marin to teach at Tamalpais High School where she stayed until Sir Francis Drake High School opened in 1951. Miss Parks taught history and was a highly respected guidance counselor at Drake until her retirement in 1979. Even after retirement, she maintained friendships with hundreds of students and counselees with whom she enjoyed spirited conversations about animals, politics and sports, and many of whom she took to lunch at her favorite restaurant, Insalata's. Frances had a genuine interest in people, with an amazing ability to make everyone with whom she spoke feel he or she was very special to her. Miss Parks was a storyteller extraordinaire and never lost her enthusiasm for learning new things. She enjoyed the opera and symphony, was an avid reader, and traveled throughout England, Scotland, Ireland, the Shetland Islands and Greece. She volunteered at St. Anthony's and at Santa Sabina. Her interest in genealogy and her personal warmth led her to become the heart of a large and wide-spread family. She is survived by nine nephews and nieces, countless cousins, and by so many others who considered her their true family. In lieu of flowers, contributions can be made to the Drake Scholarship Foundation, where there is a scholarship in her name, or to Hospice by the Bay.
