Former KNBC Reporter MARY PARKS, who did report on the Richard Swan incident at the Pechanga Resort and Casino, has succumbed to cancer after a long fight. Her daughter posted this on Facebook:
To the beloved friends of Mary Parks,
It is with the heaviest of hearts that I share the passing of my mother, Mary Parks, who died peacefully at home this afternoon.
My mother was an angel in every sense of the word, so after a year long, tremendously difficult battle with brain cancer, it is only fitting that she spend her eternal days with God and His Angels, including her mother and father who she loved so dearly.
My mother was the most giving, loving, warm, welcoming, fun loving, vibrant, beautiful woman with endless talents and an unmatched enthusiasm for life and love. To say she will be missed by many is an understatement. I would like to take this opportunity to thank you all for your love and support of our family through her cancer journey, and through her entire life.
I had some interactions, news wise with Mary Parks and of course watched for work for years. This is a BIG loss to news fans...
