Ms. Parnell served on the Tiburon City Council for one year, from 1965 to 1966, and later on the Tiburon Planning Commission until 1973. She was active in the Ecumenical Association for Housing, founded by her good friend Martin Mackey of Belvedere, from its inception until her move to Hawaii, and was later delighted to return to Marin and see Hilarita Housing finally rebuilt and occupied. Ms. Parnell joined the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency in San Francisco as an Environmental Planner in 1971, in the first year of its existence, and then worked for EPA in Hawaii before working for the State of Hawaii, first as an Environmental Planner and then as Director of the Office of Environmental Quality Control. In 1983 she left state employment to start her own environmental planning consulting firm in Honolulu and worked on many projects in Hawaii until her retirement in 2005. During this time she was active in the League of Women Voters. After living at Drake Terrace in San Rafael, Ms. Parnell moved in with her daughter, Meredith, and Meredith's family, in December of 2012, and was living with her at the time of her death. There was no funeral service. The family requests that donations be made to the San Francisco/Marin Food Bank, the League of Women Voters, the Nature Conservancy or to any of the many California and/or Hawaii conservation organizations.
