Tara PARTON, 15, remembered as fighter
Became a spokesperson for Cystic Fibrosis cause
By John EDWARDS, Page 16
Tara PARTON lived more than 5,734 days, and lived every one to. the fullest
said an uncle this week as the family prepared for her funeral Tuesday.
PARTON, who underwent a double-lung transplant in April 2005, passed away last Friday morning at her Collingwood home with her parents Doug and Shannon by her side. She was 15.
Tara was described by her uncle, Jeff PARTON, as a courageous individual, a fighter, who never let her health get her down.
Diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis when she was three-months-old, he said she always lived life to the fullest. He said the way she accepted her mortality really impressed him.
"Her reality of the situation - she knew death was imminent and she never wanted to go ahead and wallow in self pity" he said.
Jeff said his niece was artistic and an animal lover.
Sarah LAGEER has called Tara a friend since Grade 3 but started spending a lot more time with her over the last three years.
"I would go see her every day after school," she said.
LAGEER said Tara was a loyal friend and a good listener.
"If I wasn't having a really good day, she would listen to me and offer advice and it was usually pretty good advice LAGEER recalls.
She said some of her favourite times were swimming at the Young Men's Christian Association or just talking.
"We would have sleepovers and stay up until 2 a.m. just talking and watching movies," she said.
"She didn't really want (her condition) to take time away that she could spend with her Friends," LAGEER said "She lived life to the fullest"
Her uncle said the disease took hold over her in the last five months and over the last several weeks she became ill.
"She struggled forward," he said. In an April 2006 Interview Tara described herself as the survivor in a trio of young Cystic Fibrosis patients who became closely bonded during their hospital stays.
Her "long, hard wait" ended after 18 months on the transplant list with her lungs down to just 20 per cent capacity.
"We made a pact, the last one here would live to become an old lady," she recounted then. Her two Friends did not survive.
"I guess that is up to me now and I will do my best," she said.
"I do not know how long I will live, but I am grateful for my second chance at life."
Tara became an advocate for Cystic Fibrosis and organ donations.
She is survived by her mother Shannon, father Doug, brother Cody and sister Ashley, grandmother Shirley PARTON, grandparents Mel and Eleanor MATHER and nephew Logan. She was predeceased by her brother Ryan.

Tara PARTON was a fighter
15-year-old loses battle with Cystic Fibrosis
By John EDWARDS, Page 3
Tara PARTON lived 5,475 days, and lived every one to the fullest said an uncle this week as the family prepared for her funeral Tuesday.
PARTON, who underwent a double-lung transplant in April 2005, died Friday morning at her Collingwood home with her parents Doug and Shannon by her side after a long battle with Cystic Fibrosis. She was 15.
Tara was described by her uncle, Jeff PARTON, as a courageous individual, a fighter, who never let her health get her down.

He said the way she accepted her mortality really impressed him.
"Her reality of the situation - she knew death was imminent and she never wanted to go ahead and wallow in self pity," he said.
Jeff said his niece was an animal lover. He said she had several pets including a number of cats and a dog.
"She was always interested in dolphins," he said. "She always wanted to swim with the dolphins."
Tara was a student at Collingwood Collegiate Institute and Jeff called her "artistic."
He said her condition took hold over her in the last five months and over the last several weeks she became ill.
"She struggled forward," he said.
In an April 2006 interview Tara described herself as the survivor in a trio of young Cystic Fibrosis patients who became closely bonded during their hospital stays.

"I guess that is up to me now and I will do my best," she said.
"I do not know how long I will live, but I am grateful for my second chance at life."
At 15, Tara was a long way from being an old lady when she died last week.
Tara became a advocate for Cystic Fibrosis in 2006, speaking at fundraiser at Blue Mountain Resort and at the 65 Roses Gala in Toronto.
"It's about Cystic Fibrosis and my life to get awareness out there about Cystic Fibrosis so other children will not have to go through what me and my Friends went through."
Tara advocated organ donations, and in telling the story of her transplant, urged people to sign an organ donor card.
Friends have set up a group on Facebook, R.I.P. Tara PARTON, where they can leave condolences.
She is survived by her mother Shannon, father Doug, sisters Cody and Ashley, grandmother Shirley PARTON, grandparents Mel and Eleanor MATHER and nephew Logan.
She is predeceased by her brother Ryan.

Those Who Live In Our Hearts
We cannot control the movement of time,
nor can we control our own destiny,
or the destinies of those we love.
But we can take comfort in knowing
that those who have lived in our hearts
are never really gone.
For as long as we keep them with us,
in our hearts and our thoughts,
They will be with us always.
For love which is timeless,
Never ceases to exist

GEMMELL, Doctor Nancy (née MATHERS)
Unexpectedly passed away on January 12, 2008 in Courtenay, British Columbia, beloved mother of Lyn, Jack and Janet and grandmother of Carly, Cassandra, Matthew, Neil and Renita. Nancy was born on October 12, 1924 in Winnipeg, the daughter of Frank and Jean MATHERS (née BELL) and the granddaughter of Thomas MATHERS, Chief Justice of Manitoba. Nancy attended Kelvin High School and went on to medical school at the University of Manitoba from which she graduated in 1948. In 1949, she married Doctor John P. GEMMELL, who went on to have a distinguished career both as a Professor in the Department of Medicine at the University of Manitoba and as head of the Department and Physician-in-Chief at the Winnipeg General Hospital. Together they had three children. Nancy was admitted to the College of Physicians and Surgeons in 1950 but in the early years devoted most of her time to raising her young family. In the 1960s she returned to the practice of medicine and eventually began working as a school doctor in Winnipeg's inner city schools, including R.B. Russell Vocational School, providing critically needed primary healthcare to the many students who came to her office over the years. It was a cause to which she devoted her considerable talents and caring heart. In 1979 she and John separated and subsequently divorced. In 1997, now retired, Nancy moved from Winnipeg to Courtenay on Vancouver Island, where her daughter Janet and her husband Jim lived with their two children. She will always be remembered as a loving mother, a skilled physician, an avid bridge-player and an independent thinker who marched to her own drumbeat.
